I tried both - replacement of board with 6530 first, for long enough to ID 
the fact that the LEDs stopped doing their flashing trick, then replacing 
the 6530 on the adaptor board & replacing the whole board. Same result (no 
flashing, but machine not reading either).

The drive reports "read error" regardless of whether there's a disk in the 
drive or not.
