Unfortunately some really old drives only seem to work when connected to physical mainboard IDE connector (=need old PC), some may even need forced PIO1 or PIO2 mode set in BIOS. Most likely reason is some drive firmware bug(s).

Drive model?
Seagate ST9051a

Got plenty of older PCs around, sounds like it might be worth a shot, plenty with IDE ports still, for a once off install to get the hdd imaged, sounds worth it.

Thank you
