Transfer drives from a 5N to an older FS with no loss of data?

I got the dreaded single red light on the top bay of my 5N today. I’ve tried all the troubleshooting I could with nothing working. I do have an older 5 bay FS model that I’m not currently using. What are the chances if I boot that FS with the drives from the 5N (in the same bay order) that I might be able to access my data?

None, drive packs from a 5N can only be read by a 5N or 5N2, a 5N can read (and convert) drive packs from an FS, but not the other way round.
