Those were good drives, I ran one for years and it was not new to start

The complaint with some of the drives like ST225 was like many with
coated platters the media migrates due to heat and that centrifical
I've found with mine if I let them get good and warm first then format
the problem is far less pronounced to uncommon. They dont like heat.

Heat has always been the enemy of electronics and mechanicals,
especially temperature cycles.
