Drive Gets Ready - but can't id- Device error detected "ABR"

Postby odedshankar » 16.06.15, 11:40

Hi Folks,

I got the above described drive.
When i got it, it got to Ready state but no ID.
I had terminal access all along.
Heads are good(i tried swap with good donor and they work fine) so it is FW problem.

Things i did:
1. got to terminal.
2. checked NRGList with V40 command - it was empty.
3. i executed the m0,2,2,,,,,22 command and restart the drive.
4. i powered it on and waited for few minutes.
5. drive now came ready and i scanned the beginning of the drive successfully without errors.
6. In this state i did resource backup to have a working FW copy.
7. Then since NRGList got full, i cleared it up and ran m0,6,3,,,,,22 command.
8. The i restarted the drive and it came ready for 1 time or two very hard after waiting few minutes.
9. After few minutes i started the drive and from then till now - it never identifies anymore - gets ready but wehn trying to read id - always gives "ABR" error.

What do you recommend to do?
Since the drive is not id'd, can i restore it to the working FW using the terminal? in this case how can i do that and which modules or system files do i need to restore?

Is it just ABR error you see, or are there some other registers active? Did you clear all autoreassign options and MC parameters?

Im at skype if you want to chat there?
