New PC-3000 Update, Some Irregularities

Hello,
Has anyone noticed some irregularities in new PC-3000 Samsung Module ?
I have this case of Samsung 1TB (ST1000LM024), that came in for recovery. I checked with the latest PC-3000 version and got full ID, it took almost 5 minutes to complete loading the Drive's details on Log, No sector access and couldn't even do a backup of resources. I tried doing a Head test, only H0 was fine. So I concluded the was Head bad, I informed the client and give a quote, the client accepted.
When I got the donor, I do a backup and preparing to do a replace the Head. Just to have a last check of the Patient's Drive, I plugged it back to PC3000 (Now the old one) because the new one is busy, to my greatest surprise, I found out the drive is responding well, got sector access and was able to get 98% clone of the Drive. Data was fully recovered without replacing the Head. So I got curious and return patient's drive to the new PC3000 and still got the same odd result no sector access and report all heads to be bad except H0.

Do you have problems with that ? And if you don't have anything good to say why not save yourself the stress..
I expect you to mind what you write in Forum base on your status "Data Recovery Authority".

You're right, I haven't visited the ranking for a while now. I'll need to update the number of posts required to reach those levels now that the forum has been around longer. Definitely some who've made it to ranks they don't need to have. :lol:

Now yours is the only accurate one. Need to replace "Data Recovery" with "Forum" on the rest of them :)

While you are right about that, I've got SEO reasons why I want the "data recovery" keyword on every page of this site. That way Google knows how to properly categorize it as a "data recovery forum".
