Toshiba USB to SATA Guide

Yes, they're too long wires.
When i soldered wires to convert usb to sata, they were much more short but drive was still very unstable.

Maybe wires are too long?
Once time i tried to convert usb pcb to sata by soldering wires but it was very unstable.
I solved that case by changing pcb with equivalent sata.

MRT does support terminal connection in utility but it doesn't have any terminal window, so it's not possible to type commands.
Sediv has terminal window on which you can send commands, but doesn't support rom reading from toshiba yet.
