Patient HM502JX/VPK BF41 00282A 00 usb Korea
Donor Hm500JI BF41 00294B 02 Sata China

Patient had water damaged. Clicking nonstop. PCB light working. But It's usb PCB. I am not sure about is PCB still good .
I couldn't get ROM .There is no external Rom chip. Tried to line Sata connector (removed 4 capacitors ). tried to RX TX point to read. But couldn't.

I have checked this topic also.
https://forum.hddguru.com/viewtopic.php ... 5&start=20


So I have 2 question.

1)Is that PCB compatible . Is this drive has unique ROM ? Do I have to read ROM from patient.
2) Is it compatible for head swap. (I guess % 25 )

Thanks.

Samsung drives don't have unique info on ROM ...

Just make sure ROM is the same for original drive and donor PCB or "adapt" ROM by writing new overlays ...

Several options :

1 - Check on drive label if it have FW version. If so match FW version with donor.

2 - Write to new PCB ROM from resources like HDD Surgery firmware database for the model that you have. There are not that many ROMs for each version. Chances are you will find the correct one with 2 or 3 tries if not at the first one.

3 - Adapt overlay : - http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=116&t=1085
