It's the little HPIL tape drive that was first used with the HP41

The HP1630 has HPIL as standard. IIRC you can configure it to either be
remote-controlled over HPIB (when it will use HPIL for mass storage devices
like this tape drive) or vice versa.

But I seem to remember that there were several firmware revisions for
these logic analysers and that some feautres were added later. You
may need to 'acquire' a dump of the later ROMs...
