    If its in a HP server on a HP RAID controler you might have some fun with HPs custom firmware that will only let some drives work....

    Best bet is to either by direct from HP (you may find something on the HP renew site for a reasonable price) or buy a drive as close as possible to the one you have already.

    Is that in the MS20/60 in the backup room? its the slot rather then the disk. its like the 3rd that slot has eaten.

    EDIT: ask damian i bought the originals from him

    Its the slot in the machine - i would just redo the array and ignore that drive. It will only eat another disk. it would just be another 200 quid down the drain!

    Replace the backplane, have done that a few times for dl380 g3 boxes that had messy backplanes after five or so years, its just a sas/sata or in my case scsi bridge. A second hand one cost less than $100.

    Yup - the NM doesn't know what it does so thinks replace it so it doesn't break.
