Our RAID5 (using Adaptec 3085) stopped working because one of the hdd is broken. How can I identify which one it is?

You should be able to install the Adaptec Storage Manager software to make the LED on the drive blink, but...
like Gregory said, the system should not have failed if one drive went bad.. that is the point of a RAID 5. My guess would be you have an issue with your controller, the attached storage device, cabling, or you got very unlucky and had two drives fail. If the host OS is running, try the ASM and rebuild.
