Sounds like a directory problem, or bad sector 0, or possibly a firmware issue.

You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. So ihic-1608 cloning or similar things dd, etc. Your dataaheet board is Drive spins up 3. Hard drives are not lawnmowers, washing machines, or coffee makers.

They are incredibly complicated, precision devices. I don’t like power-cycling drives repeatedly I shouldn’t have to explain why, you guys understand. Looking for advice on what to do. ROM U12 is unique to the drive, contains adaptives and Dtaasheet code that must match overlay – module 11 on platters so the drive will properly unic-1608. So I’m his best bet, barring physical damage. A continuation of 2: It can be done with firmware tools and even with some free scripts and tools: Try cloning the drive with ddrescue.

Can handle the decryption on those drives without any problem at all. So, let’s summarize your options in case of: I’ll need to swap U12 easy and U14 hard; damn surface mount stuff is so tiny! Questions that are lingering: In any case if you don’t have a “decent” access speed to the drive firmware will have to be patched. So it’s a different issue.


Hardware assisted cloning of a drive with Bad Sectors: Access LED goes steady again 7. My gut feeling is that the drive locks up or begins misbehaving when trying to access some particular LBA possibly outside the normal accessible region, i. You can buy PCBs out of ebay. But that U14 chip Access LED is steady for about half a second 2.

You simply don’t have the knowledge, equipment, or experience to pull this off.

This is because of some issues on some firmware of WD drives not dealing with sectors that are pending relocation properly. The access LED interval also sometimes varies. Firmware tools might be expensive. I keep finding people talking about using them, but nobody seems to mention where to get them or what exact products are compatible.

I found a post here — http: Test it first by reading a few sectors at random places — start, middle, end. Is this procedure documented?

If the answer to 2 is “no, nothing’s available inic-6108 now”, does anyone have documentation further explaining the problem described here, section “Managing Firmware Problems”?

About firmware, SA, etc For advantages of hardware cloning read here: ASME and buy your own drive. You need proper tools.

Maybe a hardware based cloning tool might help as it will send soft-reset, hard-reset and power off-on the drive as needed.

The drive was not dropped or mishandled. The PCBs arrived this afternoon. Assuming the drive is detected as it should to start with. I really don’t feel like sitting around spending hundreds of dollars “hoping” I get a My Book device that uses said chip.

Cheapest available option might be WDMarvell. Where would I find a replacement firmware other than a donor PCB?

I’m referring to the process described here: So ddrescue is out of the question otherwise I wouldn’t be here in the first place!

The SMART data I can understand fully trust me — been doing this part of it for about 15 years now, quite familiar with ATA protocol as well and see absolutely no anomalies, so I’m datasueet thinking there is something more nefarious going on. U14 deals with USB bridge aspects as encryption After about 45 full seconds or so, 4 happens, rinse lather repeat It’s solved by deleting the re-lo list list of dxtasheet pending relocation and disabling relocation.

You can’t write to the firmware by TTL. A colleague sent this drive to me. Switch to full style.
