To continue the thread last week about the SRM not booting from
some CD-ROM drives because they won't START (or whatever the error
specifically was), I now have a better idea of why I had this problem.

My RRD45 that wouldn't boot my AS 200 but used to work (in fact, the 
machine shipped to me with the drive working) now does not work in
another machine at all. 

NT on a PC (AMD 100 MHz VESA machine, Adaptec SCSI) will not work
with the drive either. 

Smells like a drive that went bad.
