@jauntywunderkind420 Yeah. Unfortunately the drives are bad for leaky SMD electrolytic caps. I have 3 drives I need to recap sometime. The Mitsubishi drives hold up better than Alps but at this point they're all 25+ years old. You can see the damage I'm talking about in this photo - see the corroded legs on the two resistors at the bottom? Cap electrolyte is quite corrosive, if it gets bad enough it can eat the board.
