This is Rosewood family, it's very difficult drive to work with even for pro tech.
Are you DR tech ?
What tools do you have?
Why do you want to swap heads?

Rosewoods are pretty bad. Limited firmware functionality. I've had 11 in my lab, 7 failed by themselves in 3 months or less after the customer purchased them, 9 had the platter already scratched. Only one was recoverable with a system file issue. I have no idea where the DR world is going if these things keep staying on the market.

can not agree more, it is hard to make a head replacement in Seagate, let alone Rosewoods

When we first saw these coming in they were 2016 models and most had catastrophic failure, so I hated them at first. It's just speculation, but I think Seagate may have improved the platters some time in late 2016 or early 2017. Almost every Rosewood we see has been dropped and I'm pretty sure we have recovered all but one dated 2017-2018.

In that case, I hope the good quality ones get into Australia soon as well.

agree. I have a few rosewood drive with bad translator, can't deal with it at moment cause I do not wanna risk it. is there any suggestions?
I saw someone said in this forum earlier that translator issue can be done easier now by using software, but not sure about it.

It depends on the issue of translator.
Usually doing a translator regen can result on data shift, so be careful with it.
First do a proper diagnosis of the problem. I find some that the problem is a bad sys file.

Is there any general solution to fix this issue regardless different HDD status.
I have limit knowledge nor that experienced in data recovery, how should we do.

General solution is to outsource it to somebody who knows how to do it.
Without knowledge you will screw it up, from where there may not be a way back even for an experienced dr specialist.

Sorry, but no one button solution exists in the DR field.

I'll have to agree with Pepe. Too many hard drives we receive in the lab that have been tampered with beyond repair. Don't experiment with the customers data on the drive, it might be very important to someone.

I love the firmware challenges of Seagates and let's face it they keep most of us in business.

If it's firmware sure, they really separate boys from men :) But if it's scratched platters like most of the ones that I get then nothing can be done.

It must be a bad sys file to cause translator issue, can you please tell me which sys file you found problem.

in my interpretation you asked for a general solution that works on all cases regardless of hdd status, ie. the problem.
I can only see 2 ways:
-finding someone able to treat it properly (it looks like we are quite a few loving rosewoods)
-doing the hard part of the research and find it out for yourself in each different case.

In my experience every time i laid back thinking i got to know something the next similar case posed a different problem with all its challenges. Most of them cannot be done mechanically.
