The NEC 4x4 is a Nakamichi I worked for an OEM which sold them. Likely
the others are the same. Not maintained they never wrote drivers for
Win 98 so people abandoned them.

Check for the original makers site.

What is needed is a real multiple drive in one perhaps external USB. To
fit internally they used the old record changers method of dropping
disks onto one another tending to scratch.
