Seagate F3 ST31000528AS ABR error

December 26th, 2017, 2:58

Hello Sir,

Seagate F3 Pharaoh 1TB disk and model: ST31000528AS spinning well shows id details also. But in data extractor "Error - Set UDMA = UDMA133" this error comes.

Terminal messages are given below:

Rst 0x20M
(P) SATA Reset
PASS
RW: Error processing Performance Parameter File: 203C
Send Status: COMRESET seen
Starting LBA of RW Request=74706DAF Length=FFFFFFFF
ProcessRWError -Read- at LBA 74706DAF Sense Code=C3160080

ProcessRWError -Read- at LBA 74706DAF Sense Code=C3160080
InitiateMarkPendingReallocateRequest for disc_lba: 74706DAF

and 3 status registers shows DRD,DWF, DSC and in error register ABR shows at time and T also not getting.
In sector edit not accessing sectors because of ABR error...

How to solve this problem???

ST31000528AS = 7200.12 = Those very nice drives with non-resident G-List entries that end up with partial access only when you regen translator the wrong way .....

Hope that you did backup the firmware first !

Initial problem was related to sectors marked as pending. You could probably bypass that by disabling relocation.

I don't think that clearing the G-List and regening the translator was a good move ....

Time to send the drive to someone with PC-3000 and more experience with those drives ?

Well,
Its a issue with reallocation of media Cache ,You people have a habit of doing smart clear clear glist and translator for every case that comes your way ,This is absurd .In Every forum you are advising people to do this without using 1% of your brain ,Before you clear smart you should first check if indeed thats a issue ,Ditto with glist and translator ,you people are funny .
