I got a WD red drive and was wondering if this is possible. Its a old harddrive ao I was wondering if I could try to see if it can be done. Google came up nothing. Only the HCG deskstar (WD) disks can be converted using the Hugo utility. But these are WD black disks I think. All Seagate drives can do this. Does WD have such utilities?

WD RED DRIVE SEEMS RARELY POSSIBLY TO RUN in Native mode.

However, some HC models are possible to convert from 512b to 4KN, But the tools?
