Any ideas on what to try to bring back a failed MFM original Seagate (It's been a while since I've opened it up. I think it's probably ST-225, it's a 20MB Seagate) hdd?

The drive spins up but fails during boot. (Last I remember. Will have to drag it out again and verify though)

It would be nice to get my old data off of the drive as it has some of my old files on it that can't be replaced.

I remember these drives didn't park during shutdown so the read head could get "stuck" (correct me if I'm wrong). Should I open it open and verify that the head moves freely?

If all is lost, any recommendations on an 8-bit compact flash HDD replacement (if they exist).

Thanks!
