Hello Everyone,

Am new to the Data Recovery Industry, Just bought my PC-3000 UDMA. Its new and strange to me, dont even know where to start from.

Please help me.

I have so many hard disk to practice with, but I dont seem to understand anything, and their manual is not to teach.

Please will appreciate any assistance you can give.

Thank you.

My first advice is that you read the case studies on the forum, check other people problems and solutions.
Try to read the more that you can.
Unfortunately don't expect anyone to spoonfeed on this,
Or maybe you can get someone that can explain you the works, but paying.

If the drive is clicking it most likely needs new read write heads. Does it ever stop clicking and come ready? (DRD & DSC lights on)

Has Jared said, most probably heads. You need to check the interior.

You can likely still read the NV-RAM (needed to reprogram another PCB) by removing the PCB from the hard drive and connecting it to PC-3000. Just be sure to check the box that says "PCB only" when loading the utility.

That way you can try programming a new PCB to rule out any issues there. However I strongly suspect that the issue is the read write heads. With Hitachi that is the case 99% of the time.
