I believe they existed, long ago. USB1 ones were terribly terribly
slow. By the USB2 era, SCSI was disappearing, but they might exist.
USB3, forget it.

But I suspect that a device that old (we're talking
turn-of-the-century) won't have drivers for Win7. You *might* have a
chance of getting it working on 32-bit Win7.


Note the supported OSes.

This looks more promising...
