Re: How to check to see if Wd is encrpyted

What is the model? It may be easier to get in a SATA variant that you can use the PCB from.

Re: 3Ware 9650SE-16ML Default Config

What file system is it? File systems like EXT and NTFS have filesystem 'counters' you can use that may help. Also, in some nested arrays the block size of the top level stripe is the total number of sectors in a single stripe of data the RAID5 (excluding the parity block of XOR). At 64KB RAID5 strip...

Re: How to check to see if Wd is encrpyted

Maybe someone can send one to you? Since the Acelab update which allows live decryption from passport/mybook devices I imagine for a lot of people these adaptors are redundant. I can check Monday if I have one, but I cant check until then. Maybe someone closer to you has one they can send to reach y...

Re: 3Ware 9650SE-16ML Default Config

What I mean is that XOR will be physically present at 2 disks at any time, but not within the same RAID5 set, so identifying the pairs of disks with XOR patterns at the same offsets will confirm they are from opposing RAID5 sets within the top level RAID0.

Re: 3Ware 9650SE-16ML Default Config

Let me know if you need any help with it, I can look at it remotely if you cant figure it out. You need to identify where the parity blocks are at each drive to work out the direction and length of it, also you can identify 2 disks with XOR at the same position then these are from opposing RAID sets...

Re: How to check to see if Wd is encrpyted

Oxford are the enclosures with Firewire Bridge. There is no mention of Oxford in that post because not all Oxford cases have a copy of the key at the surface or even in the SA. Key is present in ROM of the bridge only. Here I have a copy of an Oxford key should it be useful for somebody. Oxford Sign...

Re: How to check to see if Wd is encrpyted

Unless its Oxford encrypted, most Oxford cases do not have copy of key in the drive, but your image looks like encrypted MBR so it should be ok.

Search in Winhex for string '57' at offset '0' from the end of the drive in reverse, post the key it finds and we can tell you which bridge you will need.

Re: WD30EZRX-00MMMB0 Dragon

Load LDR and search for SA modules.

But something to consider is the region address. I have 2 x cases here with FW version of 00200049 and both have an address of '0' for the first region in ROM. I can send to you LDR if you need for this version.

Re: Samsung HM500JI Stuck on BSY

It could be something quite simple to diagnose, but as PCLab said, we would need to see output from terminal.
