hi,
i have a pair of WD20EFRX-68EUZN0, same firmware 82.00A82, same date 22 feb 2017.
one of them works , only weak head 3 but id and read all
other one id but no data access ( tested with rapidspar ).

with WDR Pro hangs forever when try to id

try in safe mode TV9-TV10 sometime id correctly and sometime id with random data, also when id correctly access to SA, backup rom or any other operations result in completly freeze. When id with Diablo 3S and 0 capacity i can only read 0001 Dir module, any other module return error, read and/or write.
try to swap pcb/rom and head with other drive but same problem.
any advice how to proceed ( i only have WDR Pro 6 and Rapidspar, no other tools at moment )

Thanks

Send the drive to someone with more experience and better tools.

You shouldn't be using WDR anymore. It doesn't work with modern drives.

At least you need WDMarvel and i do hope that you did move the heads inside a HEPA 100 clean room ...

If the problem is firmware related it should be easy to solve with the correct set of tools and knowledge. You will not be able to fix it with WDR for sure ...

This is not true. One just have to change the format of module 01 (Dir) from new to old....
And, by the way, the OP is using WDR Pro , not WDR...That's bad.

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Ok ... good luck with that !

Maybe you can help the OP to fix his drive with WDR (Pro) or whatever ....

i think this has firmware issue. sometimes SA damaged. i think first, you have to identify exact problem.
try to SA bypass by modifying ROM.

otherwise try to contact DR PROFFESIONAL as SPILDIT told.

@maxisvk

Download WDMarvel demo from:
https://wdmarvel.com/en/
Learn how to use it and try to read all modules, ROM and regions. First on the good drive and then on the bad. Post the results and we'll see what to do next.

@Spildit

Yes , I could fix the drive with WDR. Be sure.

thanks for all reply.
this work is mostly for learning so is not a case that we go to pro.
about WDR yes, i use WDR Pro, i use it in past to fix sa module but never experience problem like this.
we have hepa clean room and all tools form apextoollab and er-tools. Yes, i'm not PRO for sure, but i have some experience in last year and when i think is too hard for me i always send it to PRO.

@BGman
i try now with WDMarvel demo, thanks

It looks like that mod 01 (Dir) was damaged.

I think it was the overlay (module 11).

If the OP did use the procedure on my thread/forum you will see that i did initialize DIR in RAM using the DIR from the drive itself. Then the OP stated he did use overlay from donor ....
