I would help but my gear is out of reach at the mo. Watchout that SCSI !=
Mac compliant. There seems to be some extra bit in discs for Mac that
doesn't necessarily exist in SCSI discs. I found an HP disc that would sing
for any kind of hammering so long as I didn't try to put it into a Mac.

A lot like many of nerds (pre-OSX) in that respect.
