As I recall, this is a SCSI device. Like many electrical connectors, SCSI connectors can develop a light corrosion which can keep the signals from being transmitted. The easiest way to clean such light corrosion is to shut down the Mac & power down *all* SCSI devices in the chain. Then gently unplug & replug all SCSI connectors. This will scrape off much of the corrosion & usually results in connectivity being restored. Be sure to unplug and replug the SCSI terminator attached to the last device in the SCSI chain. Restart by powering up the SCSI devices and finally restarting the Mac. Good luck!
