data structure of SA in detail?

What Seagate drives ? ST-10 or F3 ARCH ?

ST-10 (7200.10 and OLDER) are diferent from F3 ARCH (7200.11 and Newer).

Instead of starting with VSCs that no-one will provide to you unless you "sniff" them out of commercial tools if available (even MRT/PC-3000 will use terminal / TTL for the majority of ST-10 operations) you can start by TTL commands ...
