Current output from terminal: ActiveFW : 00 FWVer : 0001 SATA PLL cal done DDR size detected = 16MB DDR size detected = 16MB *PA...

ST1000LM024 - HN-M101MBB - BSY

Got a picture of the top of the drive? As I said, get the exact same drive model with matching firmware and simply move the donor PCB to the patient, power on and recover the data. IMG_3331.jpg Cool, so same model number (is the SC3 code important, I can't find models with that), firmware number (i...

So, after getting some help identifying the PCB, it turns out that the PCB is not the native PCB.

Taking that into account, is this drive even recoverable or am I wasting my time ?

Thanks Luke, I didn't know that. So its just the overlay modules that are important from patient pcb ?

Ok cool, so not me overlooking something.

unfortunately there are over 250,000 differences :lol: between similar roms.

I think whoever had it before me (or the owner) swapped the pcb thinking that will get it going.

Time to call customer and get more info as this is a nightmare.
