My thanks to you both.

Yes, the new PCB did the trick - phew!
After I had a rather hairy 'God, the drive really is dead' moment - then I noticed the new PCB had a label stuck over the contacts between it & the mechanism.
Needless to say I took an image of the drive, then copied it onto another HDD for the server AND have locked the original away in a box - me, paranoid? No...

So, it's up again in all it's, um, glory..?
Well, the Radio server's still down - did I mention my dead NAS..? Got the files back, though.

(It works, ok)

No, it wasn't my beloved RiscPC that did a towering inferno impression; so melting my Qube. The first Piccie was taken about an hour before I moved it on-top of my 'evil' home-server.
