The diagram illustrating the Media Changer Mode Select Device Capabilities
Page has an inconsistency in it that dates back to the SCSI-2 standard.
Reference p60 of SMC rev 05.
The Page Length field value is 12H.
The page length shown in the diagram is 0EH.
A brief survey of implementations show that that many assume the page length
value of 12H is correct and add 4 reserved bytes to the end of the data
structure: Exabyte, Breece Hill, MountainGate. Some chose to interpret this
inconsistency by changing the page length value to 0EH: DEC->Quantum.
Please lets remove this inconsistency if possible before going to print with
