Identify WD Marvel Families by Code After The Dash

Mon Mar 23, 2015 11:26 am

Explanation. The WD family code is found in the part of the model after the dash, usually in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th characters. So for example in a model such as WD5000AAKS-40V6A0 the family code is V6A, and as you can see below belongs to Tahoe family.

This can be helpful for finding other models that belong to the same family and will be compatible for heads and PCB replacement.


Please feel free to post below any ones that I may have missed or if you see any mistakes. Thanks!

For some reason G+ loves your face Larry. Every time I plus one a thread you've posted in it picks your picture. Maybe Google's algorithm favors human faces.

Strange, because I deleted my G+ accounts, figuring that face probably scares off potential customers. It's still my profile picture for my Facebook account, which I share with just immediate family, so maybe that's it. (Also, it's the same picture I use for my avitar in several forums.)

Can someone please confirm for me whether ..A6B. and ..A7B. are Atlantis or Mars? I don't seem to have one here, but I see PC-3000 pcr files which have it listed in both families... very odd.

Also ..HXZT. is it Shasta 2D or Zephyr?

I just finally did a major update to this list. Added a few families and quite a number of new after-the-dash codes to the sheet. If you see any missing or learn of new ones, please do post them below and I'll continue to update it.
