Try cloning the drive with ddrescue. It can be done with firmware tools and even with some free scripts and tools: This is because of some issues on some firmware of WD drives not dealing with sectors that are pending relocation properly.

I keep finding people talking about using them, but nobody seems to mention where to get them or what exact products are compatible. U14 deals with USB bridge aspects as encryption Hard drives are not lawnmowers, washing machines, or coffee makers. Your original board is I found a post here — http: If the answer to 2 is “no, nothing’s available right now”, does anyone have documentation further explaining the problem described here, section “Managing Firmware Problems”?

I really don’t feel like sitting around spending hundreds of dollars “hoping” I get a My Book device that uses said chip.


All of this is so incredibly frustrating. Test it first by reading a few sectors at random places — start, middle, end. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. It’s solved by deleting the re-lo list list of sectors pending relocation and disabling relocation. So drive cloning or similar things dd, etc. Assuming the drive is detected as it should to start with.

Access LED blinks same interval as above 7. ASME and buy your own drive. Cheapest available option might be WDMarvell. Clone the drive and then run a file recovery program. I don’t like power-cycling drives repeatedly I shouldn’t have to explain why, you guys understand.

Access LED goes steady again 6. Questions that are lingering: Hi folks, thought I’d post a current status update on this recovery project.

You simply don’t have the knowledge, equipment, or experience to pull this off. Are these flashable using some kind of serial or TTL interface to the drive itself?

Firmware tools might be expensive. Hardware assisted cloning of a drive with Bad Sectors: The SMART data I can understand fully darasheet 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 datasjeet.

A colleague sent this drive to me. They are incredibly complicated, precision daatsheet. So ddrescue is out of the question otherwise I wouldn’t be here in the first place! A continuation of 2: About firmware, SA, etc For advantages of hardware cloning read here: So it’s a different issue. Drive spins up 3. The PCBs arrived this afternoon. The access LED interval also sometimes varies.


Maybe a hardware based cloning tool might help as it will send soft-reset, hard-reset and power off-on the drive as needed. Meaning that the drive will take huge amount of time to clone and even to copy a single dafasheet out of it.

Access LED goes steady again 7. You can buy PCBs out of ebay. You can’t write to the firmware by TTL. But that U14 chip I’ll need to swap U12 easy and U14 hard; damn surface mount stuff is so tiny!

Is this procedure documented? Looking for advice on what to do. ROM U12 is unique to the drive, contains adaptives and ROM code that must match overlay – module 11 on platters so the drive will properly work. Datxsheet referring to the process described here: Regards and good luck! So, let’s summarize your options in case of: You need proper tools.
