Issue with Seagate ST1000DM003 (1TB)

Cool! I was expecting it'd just get you terminal access, but if it actually fixed the problem, even better :D

WD HDD Head Swap Experiences

I feel like the newer the drives get, the less DCM even matters. Half the time, all I'm matching now with newer WDs is a close date.

Impressive that one 16 months off like that was compatible.

Toshiba Head Swap Experiences

I don't know if the heads will physically work in such a case... Do heads 0 & 1 even properly line up with the platter height? :?

Seagate ST500DM002 Original board missing

There's a couple guys who claim they can rebuild a lost F3 ROM, but I've never been able to actually verify this. They definitely won't share their technique with you and will only do it if you agree to send the case physically to them.

tools for stucked heads

If heads were stuck near the ramp, it's usually best to not use a tool and simply spin the platters while putting gentle pressure on the back of the actuator to gently guide it back onto the ramp. It takes some practice to get the technique right, but once you get good at it is quite effective.
