In Recent seagate F3 firmware locked (Diag Port Locked) Drives labels a 32 Character PSID value is Printed.

What is that PSID value?

Is this have any relation to unlock those diag port?

In old and normal hdd's label has no such value PSID. it is only printed in diag port locked drives.

Experts may research that is there any possibility using that value.

if anyone find the way, pls share.

This is my small doubt if it is wrong don't sought me

Physical ID. For ordinary users this PSID is required for ISE (secure erase) mostly.

Well,
This guy only relies on free pirated softwares and normal thinks he is a expert ,He has never tried to get a pro tool and plays around with hdds he gets from poor customers .As far as his question is concerned the new drives have signed firmware including rom and platter sa area .Until and unless you are not seagate its hard to reverse engineer it .This is the reason many new drives like the st1000lm035 and st2000lm007 are giving us sleepless nights .Not only this i have noticed many new high capacity seagates have issues where even pro tools cannot parse them properly and halt drive head map creating facility rendering even a head swap to a weak spot .Seagate engineers are like apple now they want to make the pie and eat it also .General rates are around 600 to 700 usd when they recover

PSID stands for Physical Security ID. It is a unique identifier for security-capable SSDs which is required to perform Crypto Erase on them.

Crypto Erase is the process of reverting a SSD back to its factory default state. After a Crypto Erase, all security keys get deleted; therefore, user data is destroyed.

I assume it would be the same with those hdds ....

PSID is some sort of "key" to re-use a locked drive by erasing the data on it.

This is because of people freely "sharing" proprietary info and software in the open. It was expected.....And, it will get worse..
