Does it spin up?
Does the SCSI adaptor see the drive?
Any errors from the SCSI controller on attempt to low level format it?

I have a old bad Micropolis (diffrent model) that spins up, checks servo, and spins down, then gives a LED code of short, long, short, long, long, long.

Im suspect it's toast, like mine.

Micropolis 4341!!!!  That's one old hunk of junk!  Are you sure it's just not clogged up with dust?
