I have this HDD that reads very slow and with errors, but when I go back to doing another pass, it reads the great majority of sectors that I had read with error before.

Some idea to improve reading, I can do what I want with the disk is to try.

Thank you,
I have established terminal connection 9600, N, 8.1 hardware control none and pressing enter. I get ">", and I can communicate.

"SP" enable and disable ARREE.

I have tried the command but it remains the same, tomorrow I will study the subject that you have passed me.

Thank you.

ARRE = AutoReallocationReadError

It has nothing to do with your problem.

Does anyone know what parameters they use in Toshiba HDDs to calculate the ECC of the sectors?

Can someone tell me how adaptives can be changed in a TOSHIBA ROM, to make a head change?

Disabling ARRE should prevent the G-list from overflowing.

very interesting.

I think that this reading problem that I am encountering comes from the heads. I will look for some discs and now some tests.

Doesn't MRT allow you to clone individual heads?
