Maybe if you could provide the model and family it would help!

The model is WD3200UUCT-63TWBY0 is a JAMAIKA 4KV.
I have loaded a rom of the 00650074 and the LDR 00650074 and I have done a sweep of the SA and I already have the LDR.
The problem is that the 2 copies of the SA have many defects.
I'm going to see what I can do, it only has 2 heads.

Thanks PCIMAGE and MIKIPPP.

I'm still trying to recover this hard drive.
I have made an intelligent hot exchange, after rebuilding the SA, and now I can read sectors but with many errors.
I have tried 3 sets of heads and same symptom.
Any ideas?

Thank you.

In the end I was able to read over 95% of the data of the hdd.
I think that the sectors located in the periphery of the plate fail, I still think that the strong vibrations deform the plates and the most vulnerable area is the periphery, in fact the 2 heads begin to read well practically at the same time.
The zone with errors I give for lost.

A greeting.

I am not sure about a possible misunderstanding due to language translation, but I don’t think it is platter vibration, if that is what you are saying. I have a theory that in some cases when one head encounters physical damage, it then does cause vibration in the head stack, which can cause difficulty for the other heads to read. I do not have any proof of this, but have seen at least a couple log files from ddrescue or hddsuperclone that would indicate this event.
