If this is an RZ23, you will have to either send it a spin-up command
everytime you power it on (the Adaptec 1542C can do this) or locate a utility
to rewrite a bit on an embedded command page. I have an RZ23 in an Amiga 3000.
It does not spin up until I run a program called "LateSCSIMounter".

Other than that, it's an OK drive.
