I have no idea what the drive was used for, but since the seller had 99
of them, it's entirely possible they were used in an array.

I'll use Schilly's tool and see if it can talk to the drive using
raw SCSI addresses, since smartctl and other tools require the OS to
recognize the drive before working.
