Have you tested the "failed" drives on another controller yet to make
sure they are really bad?

If they really don't work, then the answer seems obvious.  I don't think
your 711 killed them.

I used to buy reconditioned drives sometimes, but always ended up having
trouble with them.

Too many people out there selling stuff that just isn't good, even if
they don't mean to.
