It ended up being 2 Faulty sides of a 3" disk.
I just tested another 3 6128's and they were also faulty GRRRRR
and i know one of them has centronics connectors that had not been connected to the X-Mem
I think i should start taking the Tablets again.


Sorry         Ray

No worry...  ;)
Better to test the hardware without any expansion.
Properly clean the expansion port to avoid side effects.
See to use RPM program to tes the drive speed and update the belts.
