Hi all,

I'm running out of ideas with this one....

40Gb ATMR
P/N 08K0852
MLC: H69421
Dell P/N 0C2180

Initially it did not spin up, went straight to "safe mode"

On investigation I saw that the first two bytes of the NVRAM had been set to "00 00", which is clearly wrong. I change back to the usual "44 41", now it spins but clicks.

So I swap PCB with one of same f/w version, it spins and comes "DRDY DSC" but cannot ID the model, or read anything from SA.

I ordered in an exact duplicate donor (same model, date, p/n, MLC - Everything, even serial is very close), still same.

Is there a way to hot swap these, I don't think there is?

Any ideas guys???

Cheers

Sean
