The issue with the DiskFile and NeXT media is with the SCSI bridge that is between the
DiskFile drive and the back panel. This is where the LLF comes into play (the bridge
translates SCSI block requests into tracks and sectors for the drive, and the software on
the bridge doesn't know what to make of the NeXT-format sectors).
If you remove the drive unit itself, they're the same. And no more reliable.
until further notice
