Hi guys,

thank you very much for your support! Yesterday I finally made it.. I changed the cable, changed the slot for the profile interface card again and now it works!
Sometimes it is better to leave the workplace for some days and try on another day again - and suddenly it works ;-) I could low level format one disk which I got from Blair - the second one ended with an error.

The low level format took only some minutes; all tests passed. Then I put the disk onto my Lisa and initialized and installed MacWorks.. when copying system files onto the disk there were errors.. hm, also the drive does not sound so good. Booting up from the drive ended with an error. This surprises me a little bit, because during low level formatting and testing all seemed ok....

Is it possbile with some re-low level formatting to get over this troubles? or is the drive simply dead?

My plan B is to use working ST-412 as replacement for the ST-506... of
course with using only 5 MB .. but I'll try Andrea Longhi's method..
