Samsung "Super On" on modern drives ?

October 8th, 2016, 11:43

Can someone please share the ATA Super-On sequence used by modern Samsung drives ?

22 80 00 00 00 A0 C0 no longer works on modern drives. Does anyone know and are willing to share the "new" command(s) ?

Looks like there might be 3 or 4 ATA commands to set the "Super On". This might be even in LBA 48 format. The 3rd command apears to be allways the same ( 03 00 C0 CD F2 E0 C0 ) while the others are always "changing" when issuing them with tools like SRT or SHT. Once i set the SUPER ON on a modern drive with a firmware tool i can work with the VSC of the older models on it, but i'm having trouble to figure out how to set the Super On on those modern drives.

Help ?

I don't think that would work ...

Samsung (native) still uses it's own VSC and not SEAGATE VSC ...
