Hi,

Anybody experienced this :

Drive reads perfectly from sector 0 to 25 xxx xxx (25MIL+) with MHDD scan and others.

Not a single sector after an exact LBA (25 xxx xxx) will read at all.

zone table ? adapatives ?

Seen more than one similar drive with this symptom.

First thought goes to translator... agree. Can you read completely and access the SA ?

Thanks Doomer,
not sure if someone else worked on this drive. Will check with the owner.

Be interesting to know what can go wrong with regen (m0)
for 5400.x drives and if commands vary for different drives.

Agreed, just applied 7200.11 m0 command to good working 5400.5 and
got the same result.
Different family different command - different command options, and
no help for commands. Who's got this for 5400.5 ??

Code:
Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewr
ite Retries = 00C8
User Partition Format   0% complete, Zn 00, Pass 00, SoftCnt:0, SoftPBA:0, SoftE
rrCode:0, ZnReWrite:0, ZnReCertify:0, IsRd:0, HardPBA:0

User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs
Total Grown Defects:0 XFatalBlkAddr_PBA:0

many things can go wrong
from my experience such "things" happen on all 5400.5, 5400.6 and 7200.3 drives

Congratulations
If you didn't backup SA before that will be realy hard to fix the drive back

Owner confirmed original drive was sent to other DR company.
Owner reported that drive was not detecting at all.
So, based on this info if true, 5400.5 has same problem as 7200.11.

Does anyone know if pc3000 has included support for 5400.5 models to do
translator regen?

Why don't you contact the other company see what they did to it? Out of interest, was it a large company and where are they based?

Same problem but different commands of terminal.
Cause - Damaged translator.
How to fix - Recalculate the translator.
On 7200.11 the m0 command on the tuturial will just do that.
On the 5400.5 the same m0 command will wipe the firmware/SA.
If you don't have a backup of the firmware of your own drive you are in a big trouble now, because things like adaptives and defect lists, etc are exclusive to your own drive only and when gone you can't copy even from the drive that was manufactured right after or before yours .... You will have shifts on the LBA translation and data will be gone forever...

If he has a SA backup it's not so problematic, if not...it's the realm of data reconstruction.

I do appreciate the responses, however my question is

Does pc3000 udma support model 5400.5 ?

I am not expecting anyone to list the commands for 5400.5, these will be found shortly,
but does anyone know the answer to the following question :

Does pc3000 udma support model 5400.5 ?

thanks

derp, if your question is "Can PC3000 UDMA fix this drive?" the answer will be - no
