Unfortunately the drive you shipped was toast. I could read the
directory, but that's about it. I'm thinking maybe it wasn't parked
before shipment? Not a big deal either way - I have plenty of old drives
The ones I'm having problems with are an ST225 and ST251 out of my junk
bin. Both of them hang at the same point during verify, but seem to be
working fine if I simply format without verification.
Not really sure what the heck is going on.
