701615 - 701499
701635 - 701572
701650 - 701499
701675 - 701672, 701609, or 771672
771737 - 701692 or 771692
771754 - 701692

771949 - 771959 or 771939 (771960 works electronically, but doesn't fit physically)
771961 - 771960, 771939, or 771959
771962 - 771931 or 771959 (771960 works electronically, but doesn't fit physically)

The last entry is the only one I added based on another thread. I'm still waiting to hear any confirmation if those boards actually work.

Could be, I will not affirm that, but this info is out here on several forums long time ago...

The OP states that the list originated from the ACE website. I've also confirmed with ACE and they have no problem with the reposting of the information.

Technical information like this when posted to the web is generally considered public information and is very commonly re-shared for easy access on other forums. It's not exactly the same as a custom written article to which copyrights might possibly apply. Call it plagiarism if you want, but the intent was only easy access to the info.

As far as I can observe

WD USB 771962 has the same Marvell controller and the same WD Nautilus chips as the 771959

Kind regards

Perhaps, but have you tested their cross compatibility? I've seen a number of times where those matched and still didn't' work. I prefer not to update anything on the list until it's been tested.
