I'm really curious about the "re-defining the Primary Head" feature on Maxtor drives. Is this a software solution such as a special loader or a modification of the rom? Thanks. :mrgreen:

It is a software solution, primary head can be redefined if thts damaged the rom requires modification too after head redefining.

This confirms my previous beliefs about changing the sa head for a Maxtor. Can someone give me a hint on where to look in the rom? Maybe even im or pm me. Thanks. :wink:
