The Answer is 9.1/18.2GB disks are not supported on SSA
model 100. The maximum supported disk is 4.2GB.
I received three responses from Sun-mangers. (And also received
a reply from Paul Mazzola, Sun SE. He confirmed that 9.1/18.2GB
are not supported on SSA model 100).
Thanks to the following Sun-managers:
1) "Brooke King (6532)" <email@example.com>
>The spec sheet is correct.
2) Wolf Schaefer <firstname.lastname@example.org>
