Yes i did try XT-IDE - it detected the drive but fdisk told me there was no fixed disk in the system (IBM PC DOS version 3.3)

I don't know much about the PCjr but these is what I found so far:

1) jr-IDE -- https://texelec.com/product/jr-ide-for- ... rotronics/
2) a sidecar called "Legacy III" --- https://www.brutman.com/PCjr/pcjr_options.html
3) Use a ZIP drive BUT PCem emulated the IDE one and it's got to be the parallel one
