No. Its just the drive - no case, mounted internally.

However I fixed ( ? read as played round with until working) 
it by removing all the scsi jumpers from the device. It seems happy to 
identify itself as ID 6 (no jumpers & it wants to be ID 6 ??) &
its working fine.

Maybe it has some wierd SCSI auto ID selection thing ? (wild guess).
