Hello Simon,

Sorry - I was traveling and unable to check the forum. If you need a fast reply, please use the Atola support forum (it is monitored by everyone at Atola Technology. You can access it by launching the Insight, and then navigating to Help->Support forum.

Now to your issue: can you please post the full log including the currents graph? You can export your log into .pdf or .rtf and then attach it here in the topic.

Thanks

Simon,

Thanks for the file!

It could be either heads or pcb. At this point I would swap the ROM onto a good pcb and then re-ran the diagnostics.

Simon,

From the registers I can say there's potentially an issue with the interface part of the pcb. From the current graph I can say there's head damage. The only way to clarify is to rule out the pcb first. You will need a donor anyway, be it heads or pcb :)

Good news! PCB with those Toshiba drives is not something to look forward working with...big headache unless you have a lot of $$ for the right equipment.
