Hi,

Is it possible to determine the starting LBA of OD, MD and ID of a drive for different heads in the drives? I was tasked to write a script to check the start of the above but I am stuck at identifying the LBA at different location per head.

OD - outer diameter
ID- inner
MD - middle

It's is only possible with vendor specific commands, unless it's a SCSI/SAS/FC drive
