Hello
The drive in topic (Toshiba 500GB) shows ABRT.(No user area access)
Customer said (the laptop freeze and he restarted then the drive become unreadable)

The drive spins normally with full calibration and Model ID, FW and SN. But no user area access.
G-list is empty and P-list is empty as will.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

No need tell. Answer is in topic header MQ02ABF050H
This explains why user area without access, and solution will come faster to the mind.

How did you clear NAND on this Toshiba SSHD ?
Have you done a secure erase on donor drive and then swapped pcb into patient drive ?

Strange ....

On TOSHIBA drives (even on models that are not SSHD and doesn't have NAND) when you see the "H" at the end of the correct model it means that the drive have HEAD(S) issues.

I did end up finding that recently when by stupidity i did ask on the SeDiv forum to add support for a xxxxH Toshiba drive !!!

Of course that by now i did saw several of those drives NOT MQ - OLDER ones and i was able to REFURB for use most of them by blocking the affected head (cutting sectors belonging to that head by editing DD with SeDiv).

For me a Toshiba model ending in "H" means just that the drive starts and by itself if "discovers" some sort of problem with one or more heads and places that H on the model to alert for that issue.

I don't think that NAND have anything to do with this ...

+1 Northwind
The H at the end of the model number distinguish SSHD drive and HDD drive has the same model number without letter H.

Sorry for the confusion.

This would apply to drives like this only :
