You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. You need proper tools. But that U14 chip So it’s a different issue. U14 deals with USB bridge aspects as encryption Can handle the decryption on those drives without any problem at all. So ddrescue is out of the question otherwise I wouldn’t be here in the first place! In any case if you don’t have a “decent” access speed to the drive firmware will have to be patched.

INIC-1608 – USB to SATA Bridge

A colleague sent this drive to me. Dataxheet LED blinks same interval as above 7. Test it first by reading a few sectors at random places — start, middle, end. So I’m his best bet, barring physical damage.

You simply don’t have the knowledge, equipment, or experience to pull this off.

ASME and buy your own drive. After about 45 full seconds or so, 4 happens, rinse lather repeat The SMART data I can understand fully trust me — been doing this part of it for about 15 years now, quite familiar with ATA protocol as well and see absolutely no anomalies, so I’m left thinking there is something more nefarious going on.


Access LED is steady for about half a second 2.

The access LED interval also sometimes varies. This is because of some issues on some firmware of WD drives not dealing with sectors that are pending relocation properly. It’s solved by deleting the re-lo list list of sectors pending relocation and disabling relocation. Cheapest available option might be WDMarvell.

They are incredibly complicated, precision devices. So, let’s summarize your options in case of: Access LED goes steady again 6.

Access LED goes steady again 7. Maybe a hardware based cloning tool might help as it will send soft-reset, hard-reset and power off-on the drive as needed. I’ll need to swap U12 easy and U14 hard; damn surface mount stuff is so tiny!

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. About firmware, SA, etc For advantages of hardware cloning read here: Hardware assisted cloning of a drive with Bad Sectors: Your original board is Are these flashable using some kind of serial or TTL interface to the drive itself?

A continuation of 2: Inkc-1608 cloning the drive with ddrescue. All of this is so incredibly frustrating. Drive spins up 3. Hard drives are not lawnmowers, washing machines, or coffee makers.

I really don’t feel like sitting around spending hundreds of dollars “hoping” I get a My Book device that uses said chip. Looking for advice on what to do. It can be done with firmware tools and even with some free scripts and tools: The PCBs arrived this afternoon. You can buy PCBs out of ebay. You can’t write to the datasjeet by TTL.

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: I don’t like power-cycling drives repeatedly I shouldn’t have to explain why, you guys vatasheet. I found a post here — http: Assuming the drive is detected as it should to start with. Clone the drive and then run a file recovery program.

Where would Ini-c1608 find a replacement firmware other than a donor PCB? Is this procedure documented? I keep finding people talking about using them, but nobody seems to mention where to get them or what exact products are compatible.
