Since the drive conforms to the SCSI-2 standard,
and SCSI-2 driver is OK PROVIDED that it does
not do a SCSI INQUIRY and then check that the
mfr and model are on some list of "drives approved by Marketing".

Although SONY USA don't seem to know about the SDT-5000, SONY Europa, who are the mfr do. Their URL for the SDT-5000 is:-
