HDDSuperTool - WD 8TB RED scratchpad error

Fri Jul 21, 2017 12:21 am

I tried to dump all modules on 8TB WD RED and I got following error:

Error processing COPYBUFFERTOSCRATCHPAD command on line 143.

Do you guys have any idea how I can fix it?

Thank you.

Perhaps it's because a module is larger than the program expected and thus exceeded the buffer (scratchpad) size.

Is there anything I can try? This HDD is encrypted with JMS561chip and I need to find the key so I can decrypt this HDD. Do you guys know any solution how I can find the key on 8TB HDD?
Thanks.

I know this is a late reply, but this can explain why.
module length in sectors= 0

When it tried to read the module (I think in this case this means the first module), the processing showed the module was 0 bytes in length. It likely means it read all zeros, which means there is likely no access to SA. The error is because the script is not expecting a zero result.

Very possible. It looks like dump all modules was chosen, so it would have tried module 01 first to get the list of modules. Module 01 should always have data. There is not much error handling in the VSC scripts, only what is needed to prevent obvious damaging commands to be sent to the drive. It has been awhile since I have even worked with these scripts so I can't even remember all the details of my own work :?

I would also like to add that I based the scripts from drives that worked and were able to access the data. It is very difficult to know what to expect from a drive that responds differently if you don't have one.
