Hello,
i've found a bug relative to Seagate Momentus 5400.3 (Venus family).
Utility is not able to read ATA overlays and reads ID incorrectly.

P.S.
This drive is perfect, i can read all user data on surface. I also tried to read firmware modules of another good Venus drive that i have, it also behavies with exact same issue when reading ATA and ID.

Did you try with SeDiv as well ? Can you correctly read ATA and Vendor with SeDiv ST-10 tool ?

I did use it on several Venus drives without any issue.

I did write this sometime ago because people without experience might be "confused" by the way SeDiv works on ST-10 drives ...
