No. As I already stated, that's only half the ROM. That is, you ID-ed the ROM as a 4Mbit chip instead of 8Mbit.

Just select any 1.8V 8Mbit SPI flash device from your device list.


Ok, 3 days and 10 posts later we're getting somewhere. I'll have another look at it while I still have it and get back to you.

Also if the drive does report that it's password locked then ... IT IS password locked and those WDC codes will ... NOT HELP. I did just try with 2 drives WD re-branded Hitachi and those WDC codes don't work neither as MASTER neither as user ...

I suspected as much. Especially if you have a way to put in the password. What raised my suspicion is that I couldn't even get SMART data through regular ATA commands which most locked drives offer however that Network logic board (WD MYCLOUD) can still get SMART data which led me to believe it has a way of unlocking.

You should be able to get S.M.A.R.T. even if the drive is ATA password locked. I did test it with your exact model and i could get S.M.A.R.T. even on the locked drive ...

Mine must be different then. Maybe it still comes back to that "WDMyCloud".

Ok ... If you plug the drive to something like PC-3000 card by SATA you should still be able to enable S.M.A.R.T. and retrieve the values even with the locked drive unless it's broken ...

I feel like we need to have a live chat because it's becoming a bit frustrating to get even basic information to you and at this point I'm not sure if I'm not clear or if you are taking the piss.

So on this drive, the universal ATA commands, like a S.M.A.R.T request is "Security locked" Even on a PC-3000. There.

What I'm saying is that i did saw several drives by now with ATA security lock enabled including drives from the exact same model as yours and on ALL of those drives it was possible to retrieve S.M.A.R.T. so i'm saying that maybe your drive does have other issues as you started by stating ...

It surely does have other issues. However I can distinguish between "SMART not available" or a damaged module or log and a "security lock".

So you are saying that the Security Lock (ATA password) on your drive is preventing access to S.M.A.R.T. ? Is that it ?

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Look, what I was saying is that on the locked drives that i did test with exact same model i could read S.M.A.R.T. even if they were locked.

What i'm pointing is that if you can't read S.M.A.R.T. most likely the drive have more problems just that.

I notice that the Reallocated Sector Count has a raw value of 3535 and a normalised value of 89. The fact that the raw value is not a multiple of 8 would suggest that this is a count of 4096-byte physical sectors rather than 512-byte LBAs. Also, the fact that the normalised value has dropped by only 11 (= 100 - 89) points would suggest that WD/HGST reckons that the drive is still serviceable after developing ~30,000 defects. :o

    (3535 / 11) * 95 = 30530
    (3535 / 12) * 95 = 27985

Hello Guys,

i have a case similar to this one, 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
