Toshiba Head Swap Experiences

I'm having a miserable time with an MQ01ABD100 AAH AC11/AX1R4C. It detects but can only read head 3 via utility, and with lots of errors. I've changed the heads with 4 different donors and not a single set would allow the drive to detect. I don't normally have this much trouble with Toshiba, but am ...

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

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

If your data is of any value to you, it is best to stop and consider sending to a data recovery professional and be very thankful that your hard drive is a Western Digital and not a Seagate.

Unable to recover formatted hard drive Seagate 2 TB

How to test heads on HITACHI-IBM-ARM utility?

I'm pretty sure that writing in DE only writes to clone/image and never the patient.
