I've got two dead miniscribe HDDs from two Mac SEs, I think the optical 
gate sensor for the external track 0 sensor on the head stepper (these 
don't use a voice coil head!) goes bad, and I'm not sure how to fix it. 
Symptom is the drive ramming the head into the "track -1" head stop and 
making a loud racket.
