Random driver for insanely old hardware

I have a question, just out of totally pure curiosity about one
particular piece of hardware.
Today I was browsin around Value Village (big giant thrift department
store in Canada) here in Sudbury, and I came across A "GCC Technologies
UltraDrive 50R", SCSI based and external -- from 1990.
Now here's the maybe not so wierd part: only 1 out of like 4 hits on
Google showed up as the UltraDrive 50R 50 Meg Removable Hard Drive,
using Ricoh optical removable hard drives. I'm a fan of finding old
computer stuff, and running legacy machines just to see what it was like
and just for fun.
Anyways, my question is: I cannot find ANYTHING whatsoever on the
internet about this product. Out of pure curiosity, was there ever a
driver available for FreeBSD; or, if you can comment, linux kernel? I
just really wanna know. :P
