Find good donor for head swap

One is a SATA and the other is a USB...that is the difference.

Find good donor for head swap

You need to match the preamp (shows in terminal log when you power the drive on).

Probably Media Cache issue -- ST1000DM003-1ER162

If you aren't going to bother describing the full symptoms of the drive, how can you expect us to help diagnose them? Please tell us exactly what the drive was doing when you first received it? Is it clicking? Does it spin down? What shows in the terminal log?

REQ assist w/ t'shoot & hopefully recovery

1. if the drive doesn't need a head change, there is absolutely no reason why it would be a 4 figure number to recover by a professional. In fact, it should be less than $500...that said, it doesn't appear to be such a simple case 2. if a Seagate drive clicks and then spins down, it means that the h...

PC-3000 SAS backup and restore firmware

I don't have PC3K SAS, but I assume it has support and manuals just like the rest of their products? Have you taken the time to read the manual?

Clients who want HFS+ formatting for delivered data?

We always return client data in the same format as we received it, with the exception of Linux file systems and special requests from the clients.

We have a couple of MacBooks and macdrive.

Drill presses?

when compared to the drill press, it isn't much different in effort...2.5" drives are stupid simple. Some models of desktop drives are a bit tougher. But, they'd both be a breeze with the hard drive crusher I linked to above.

Drill presses?

For future reference, a 2 tonne arbor press is just as effective, yet quieter and less messy. But, one of these days I'll take the time to order an actual hard drive crusher (http://purelev.com) which isn't very expensive at all.

Sabre 53 different number of heads

Kind of ironic that you post this question now. I have an 80GB Sabre53 cloning now. Yes, if you have a 40GB patient with failed heads, you can use an 80GB donor with 2 heads. In fact, it is recommended to go that route. You may need to make a minor change to the headmap in the ROM to mention that th...
