oooooh it arrived... look what I found 😀 something special to add to my growing drive-collection
Errrr...that's for the pictured Philips CDi players. There's nothing to suggest it is the model of caddy that is needed for your drive.
if you look at the plastic "door" piece in the drive it looks exactly the same, and also has those same "notches" on one side of the drive and caddy, and seeing how LMSI units are basically philips drives it's safe to assume imho it is the correct one.
Here's a picture of the drives and caddy...
These drives are the second CDROM drive Philips produced. You see here the CM201 internal model on top of the CM121 external model. On top of the CM201 is the strange caddy-like device you had to use to place a CD in the drive. It was not a real caddy because a part of the device would come back out of the drive after the CD was loaded. The drives were faster than the CM110 tho. The external version was with a SCSI interface also available as the DEC RRD40.
...and a copy of the manual for the DEC version (has some better representations of the caddy / operation)
