Seagate F3 Terminal Command Set

Excelent stuff, congratulations !!! My small contribuition here. Where it says: C>U10 (regenerates the media cache) Should really be saying: C>U10 (regenerate MCMT only while mantaining MC contents) And should add C>U2 (regenerate both MCMT and MC contents) Understanding that MCMT and MC are differ...

WD spyglass donor match

Keep in mind that 3Tb and 4Tb PCBs aren't always cross-compatible. For the 4Tb ones you need the -002 version SATA board. So you'll get that if you try using a PebbleB SATA PCB too.

ST1000LM024 Problem after a fall

Failed read/write heads. That's always the issue after a fall. Pretty much 100% of the time.

PCB BIOS and FLASH swap

No. There is zero point to that. It's only if it's underpowered that it's an issue. If you are plugged into a 3.0 port and using a proper cable and are still having an issue, then power IS NOT your issue. There is no benefit to over powering a drive above spec. unless you want to be this guy: More P...

PCB BIOS and FLASH swap

17161 So is there some adapter you can refer me to that can add power to the port? No, just be sure you are plugged into a USB 3.0 port rather than 2.0 (which can underpower) and be sure that you aren't using a USB cable that is too long or too thin. 17161 is there a way to just get the drive detec...

PCB BIOS and FLASH swap

I give it 0.02% odds the PCB had anything to do with your issue. Most cases are firmware malfunctions due to bad sectors and/or weak read/write heads. You're spinning your wheels messing around with the PCB. In all likelihood, you'll just make things worse. But, as PCLab said, you only need to swap ...

Toshiba USB to SATA Guide

Donor Drives will do this for you. Just know that if it's a Toshiba or Seagate, and the original ROM is lost in the mail, your data is gone FOREVER!!! So shipping that out carries inherent risks. Most of us who are in the business of data recovery only offer complete recoveries (imaging the data, co...

HELP: NEED MOD 47 FROM 40 - TreslXLB2

Sounds like you need to either build a new ROM from SA, or maybe just fix the head map in your donor ROM???

I broke the ground pin off of a BIOS chip (Woops). Will it still work?

Hopefully, there is a copy of the ROM modules in the service area. I can't recall ever needing to rebuild the ROM of a Tressels family WD drive (they're pretty uncommon) so I can't remember offhand if they have a backup of it. What was originally going on with the drive before you attempted the PCB ...
