Hello Guys,

i have a case maybe you guys can figure me out the solution.

Model: WD80EFZX-68VW8N0
P/N: 2W10102
PCB: 006-0A90439

Issue: Hard Drive spinning good and gets ready in a while with Proper ID & Capacity (Family Unknown/Not supported). But, when we try to access the sectors it gets busy again.


Hope to see your revert soon.

Thank you

Can you access the SMART data?

Does the drive allow setting the ERC timeout parameters?

You might like to try the new "Rebuild Assist" feature set, if properly supported:

Never tried before, but i was thinking if someone did succeeded with these type of drives and want to share an experience.

Can you give some more hints to follow the path.

Thank you.

In this architecture, the PCB will give identification information separately from the germoblock. In your case, most likely the service area is not read. Maybe partlly. There are no public methods for working with them. They are not supported either in PC3K, or in MRT, or elsewhere.
There are some developments: ROM, loader, service structure, some service commands. Everything is designed for a relatively serviceable drive with live heads and service area.

Is the SA file system FAT-like?

BTW, which Russian word are you translating as "germoblock"?

Yes, I guessed that, but what is the actual Russian word, or words? I'm just curious whether it has any similarities to other Slavic words that I can understand.

Well, the SMART data are accessible ...

гермоблок
It's a two-word-combination: гермо-блок
first one is derived from a word "герметичный", meaning "sealed" or "airproof", which is not technically correct but some people still use it.

Hermetic? (germetichnyy)

BTW, in this case it's a helium model, so it is sealed.

Indeed :)
Then it is a perfect word

Doomer,
встречный вопрос: как расшифровать HDA? Hard Drive A..? Википедия предлагает варианты:
/another question: What means HDA? Hard Drive A..? Wikipedia offers:
High Definition Audio?
How to Destroy Angels?
Holy Demon Army?
:lol: :lol: :lol:
shubhsinghal,
Does SMART data full? I have a PCB. It gives identification data and partially SMART separately from... HDA. 5-6 attributes, it seems. SMART data, of course, is complete nonsense.

HDA = head/disc assembly

That's interesting. I suppose the following SMART attributes could be reported without access to the SA (current values only):

    spin-up time
    temperature
    helium level

The disk, of course, is not the same as the TS's. But the architecture is the same - "CCB". This shows the unscrewed PCB.

Yes, I can read this information.

But trying few attempts after reading lot of threads, still no luck.

anyone solved this kind of case earlier?

I usually use "SnippingTool" from Win. The drive is somewhere ... far away. I did not think that this photo would ever be needed. Moreover, I did not think that something would have to be cut out of her by the Paint. :oops:
