Meaning that the drive will take huge amount of time to clone and even to copy a single file out of it.

Now i would advise you to start by reading this: Newbie info, from and for newbies. Try cloning the drive with ddrescue. You do datssheet have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Access LED is steady for about half a second 2. I keep finding people talking about using them, but nobody seems to mention where to get them or what exact products are compatible. My gut feeling is that the drive locks up or begins misbehaving when trying to access some particular LBA possibly outside the normal accessible region, i.

Assuming the drive is detected as it should to start with. Sounds like a directory problem, or bad sector 0, or possibly a firmware issue.


I’m referring to the process described here: You can’t write to the firmware by TTL. Are these flashable using some kind of serial or TTL interface to the drive itself? The drive was not dropped or mishandled. But that U14 chip You can buy PCBs out of ebay. U14 deals with USB bridge aspects as encryption Switch to full style. dataxheet


Access LED goes steady again 7. Access LED goes steady again 6. About firmware, SA, etc For advantages of hardware cloning read here: So, let’s summarize your options in case of: So it’s a different issue. Hardware assisted cloning of datasheeh drive with Bad Sectors: Drive spins up 3. The access LED interval also sometimes varies. After about 45 full seconds or so, 4 happens, rinse lather repeat In any case if you don’t have a “decent” access speed to the drive firmware will have to be patched.

It can be done with firmware tools and even with some free scripts and tools: So drive cloning or similar things dd, etc. Clone the drive and then run a file recovery program.

INIC-1608 – USB to SATA Bridge

Test it first by reading a few sectors at random places — start, middle, end. Can handle the decryption on those drives without any problem at all. I’ll need to swap U12 easy and U14 hard; damn surface mount stuff is so tiny!


Your original board is You need proper tools. The PCBs arrived this afternoon. You simply don’t have the knowledge, equipment, or experience to pull this off. I found a post here — http: Where would I find a replacement firmware other than a donor PCB? Is this procedure documented? All of this is so incredibly frustrating.

INIC – INITIO – IC Chips – Kynix Semiconductor

This is because of some issues on some firmware of WD drives not dealing with sectors that are pending relocation properly. A continuation of 2: I really don’t feel like sitting around spending hundreds of dollars “hoping” I get a My Book device that uses said chip.

I don’t like power-cycling drives repeatedly I shouldn’t have to explain why, you guys understand. Looking for advice on what to do. A colleague sent this drive to me.
