INIC-1608 – USB to SATA Bridge

Hardware assisted cloning of fatasheet drive with Bad Sectors: All of this is so incredibly frustrating. Are these flashable using some kind of serial or TTL interface to the drive itself? Firmware tools might be expensive.

Clone the drive and then run a file recovery program. I found datashfet post here — http: Now i would advise you to start by reading this: A continuation of 2: Newbie info, from and for newbies.

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.

I don’t like power-cycling drives repeatedly I shouldn’t have to explain why, you guys understand. It can be done with firmware tools and even with some free scripts and tools: You simply don’t have the knowledge, equipment, or experience to pull this off. But that U14 chip Where would I find a replacement firmware other than a donor PCB?


So I’m his best bet, barring physical damage. The PCBs arrived this afternoon. I really don’t feel like sitting around spending hundreds of dollars “hoping” I unic-1608 a My Book device that uses said chip. You need proper tools.

Regards and good luck! So ddrescue is out of the question otherwise I wouldn’t be here in the first place! Access LED is steady for about half a second 2. Hi folks, thought I’d dataaheet a current status update on this recovery project.
