I feel your pain...I had been working so hard to get a drive to work. I really wanted to have a working drive for the Vintage Computer Festival East this year, but no luck. Here are more things that I did to finally get a D9090 the drive to work with an ST-225, in addition to what I wrote last time: 1. First cook the hard drive for 3 minutes in the oven at 150 F degrees (C?) to liberate the lubrication in the drive. 1.5 Low level format the drive in an IBM XT first using diagnostics, etc. 2. Because the ST-225 is smaller than the Tan 603s you should put in new spacers for the drive cards. It seems like if the top card is stressed/bent at all it will not work. I also had to use plastic spacers, not metal. Don't let the two cards come in contact with each other. 3. Run the drive for 10-15 minutes before I power on the computer 4. Run the command ?ds$ to make sure I get an all clear (73...) from the drive computer. 5.
