    You should first test to see if the controller is at fault, and properly set
    up. The drive can also be tested in another machine that has a SCSI
    controller.

    This sounds like a drive failure. It can be the main drive itself, or the
    circuit board on it. The board is not replicable, unless you have a
    scrapper board to try it. The board firmware is exactly factory matched to
    the media, so it is not recommended to use it permanently. The idea is to
    get the data off, and replace the drive.
