300 on the RA81 IIRC from a few weeks ago.

We have two drives ('81s) which seem to have a similar problem to the
original poster's - they appear healthy but just don't want to spin up.
We haven't taken a look at them in the past couple of weeks as a) there
are plenty of other things to be done! and b) Supposedly we're having a
whole pile of original docs for these drives donated to us which I'm
hoping will include some more in-depth diagnostics.

If anything useful comes of the latter I'll shout...
