I had a perfect working Toshiba MQ01 ABD050 drive rev AAA AA00/AX001A
I tried to convert Sata to USB with compatible PCB. So I would put customers data on it. Kinda unnecessary stupid try I know.
My second fault I haven't back up anything from good hdd.

After hot swap rom chip. Chip died. Not working. Sure about over heat when soldering. but other chip working. I never changed heat degrees. I did so much hot swap before. This is second rom died .
Now Is there any chance to rebuild Rom for this hdd. It's not recovery job. I want to fix this hdd .
I have more pcb same pcb number.

Toshiba ROM's unique for each drive, so your drive is dead now.
Use it as head donor for instance.

I tried with MRT chip reader. Doesn't read it. Also doesn't read another chips.tried 1 dead 2 working chip. I tried only 1.8 V. Never used that equipment before. Maybe I miss something.

I don't know which language using in eprom. I will research it.

You shouldn't be using that MRT external programmer thing for nothing .... That thing just kills the chips. No kidding. Trash that thing and buy something "decent" like a revelprog that have good quality/price relation !

:D

Also if chip is gone on Toshiba data and drive are gone as well.

I hope you are up front with your customer and have insurance to help compensate them for your mistake.

MRT programmer never worked for me. When is able to read, rom file results no good (in the best case, some bits are not read correctly).
I use revelprog as suggested by spildit, it's fine!

Yes, there are ...

Even i attempted to work on that many years ago on IDE drives that did had some copies of some modules on SA (platter) but i was not lucky at all ....

I don't know of anyone that even claims to be able to do this so ...

Why don't you try it?
The best way is to test it for yourself and see if it provides good results for you.

I did try it even on simpler older Toshiba drives and i was even able to get some copies of modules on tracks but it was impossible to gain access to those tracks without original ROM so ... i was not able to do it and i don't know anyone that can do it.

For example to regen F3 Arch ROM and NVRam on Hitachi ARM there are people that i do know that are able to do it. For Toshiba i did never saw anyone here even claiming that they can do it ... So i kind of give up wasting time trying ...

Try ROM's dumped off the identical drives (same manufacture date is HIGHLY desirable). The head maps must match. I am not sure about Toshiba but this trick has worked many times for me on WD drives (including new models).
