Hello,

I have a Seagate 3TB model number: ST3000DM001, initially the drive has got Head 1 faulty, i have tried to read the rest of the heads but the drive is reaching the ready state after a long while. I have completed the translator regeneration which made the drive reach the ready state must faster, the drive started imaging successfully all heads apart from head 1, at 47% of the imaging process all heads stopped reading. New read/write heads have been transplanted but i am still having the same issue it will read no sectors at all after the 47%.

I have also tried to rewrite the system files again but with no joy.

Could anyone help please.

Users with little experience come here and criticize experienced users who suggest to consult a professional. It is because of cases like this .

From what you said, it probably did not need translator regeneration. One failed or failing head would result in lots of read errors causing all sorts of defect lists to overflow and cause poor operation.

Translator on this model is based on more than one defect list. Translator regeneration only takes into account one list. This means new translator does not include all required defects and without these there will result in 'shifts' between relative and actual position of logical sectors. these shifts will cause errors and prevent surface access.

Replacement of heads would have only further complicated the issue.

With the poor condition of the device, in addition to this new translator error, it really is time to consult someone who can help. Repeated attempts to work on this with no real ideas of what is needed or how to correctly execute it will simply harm the user data and limit its recoverable condition.
