Thanks for the info.  Once I opened the drive up I saw that there was a
pack still in there.  At first I was excited to get a free pack but then I
quickly realized that the heads weren't locked. In fact, they were deployed
about an inch into the surface.  I retracted them manually.  I can't see
apparent damage to the pack or heads but the drive isn't in a good place
for analysis.  Oh well...
