What are you using to read ROM ? PC3K ? Did you try by TTL ?

What is the full model of the drive ?

USB only ? SATA ? External ROM chip ?

Did you try to short points to prevent firmware loading instead of changing ROM ?

Does it have external ROM chip ?

Are you reading ROM by ATA or TTL ?

Try to put PCB on drive and short TV9 with TV10 ?

In case of work with the removed controller TresXLB2
- First you have to autodetect the family
- and then load the 5C module
- load module 11 -> DRD DSC goes out -> click on "Cancel"
- the following window appears, click "OK"
- click "Cancel"
- click on "Utility start".

* Modules 5C and 11 not need to be in the same version as the ROM

Thank you all for replay and suggestions.

Probably I was not clear enough.


1. drive spin OK without any problem. Remain busy.
2. PCB with external ROM
3. only PCB connected to PC3000 become ready after some time.
4. PC3000 detect family in Kernel mode, star utility but report ROM read error
5. Read ROM or ROM modules not possible.
6. I try WD Blue drive, same family, same PCB(backup resources without problem on WD blue)
7. I try to read ROM with jumpers set, same problem

It seems weird, but to work with the PCB itself you must first load the loader (for TresXLB2)
Do EVERYTHING as I wrote

Sometimes you need to load the 5C module, then the module 10 and only then the module 11

Thanks to Mikippp I manage to read ROM and modules

I didn't have time to perform another steps.

I check drive behavier.
drive spin up OK, after 30seconds spin down and spin up. After another 30 seconds spin down and remain busy with error satatus register.
