Ultrastar DC HC520 He12
HGST HUH721212ALE600

Identifying the device ...

Any suggestions? I'm not even sure what to choose from the device category ...

i'm fairly new to PC-3000 -- and I have to admit
- Determining the family of device with just a short alpha-numeric moniker for the family doesn't make it obvious.

Is there a list that lets me identify or classify them ??

Thanks

That model is fairly new. No supported in PC3000, yet.
Can try entering the utility using one of the other families, though not sure if it will work.

Can you upload a ROM dump? I have analysed the ROM from a HUH728080ALE600 (WD80EFZX-68UW8N0), so I'm expecting that it will be similar. AFAICT, HGST has also publicly released the VSC which allows reading of the SA. However, I don't know if a Super-ON command needs to be issued beforehand. I can help with this if you know how to use an ATA terminal.

FWIW, the WD80EFZX-68UW8N0 is an Aries HC8.

Hi there ...

I will publish more about this later on on my forum ...

It only works on very old drives.

That "A2" "FE" will read modules of very old models only and you have "A1" "FE" as well that does read the module list even on modern GHGST drives but on He filled drives it doesn't work and you will only get something like "LGE6q"

I will update the thread on my forum when i do have extra time.

Regards.

External ROM programmer ....

PC-3000 doesn't know how to read the ROM on those by VSC.

Yes. I did just move that thread from the Long Term Regular Members Lounge
section of the HDD Oracle to the main section of the forum (HGST) so now it's public visible even for users without an HDD Oracle account.

I did just update that thread as well.

Enjoy.
