SCSI is black magic. I've had everything from a dodgey power supply to a
faulty terminator, to a terminating resistor installed backwards kill
drives stone dead in my time.

Have you tried the drives in another box after the primary one "killed"

It's also possible {4 year old drives on permanently} that the things are
just all hitting theit failure point at the same time - possible, but

Keep waving the ju-ju stick and pray.
