Brief introduction of the products:

 

MRT is data recovery and HDD repair device developed by MRT laboratory, it includes software and hardware. Software includes data explore and all kinds of professional tools, hardware includes MRT SATA extend card and some accessories. Follow is a brief introduction of product:

 

  MRT hardware card uses PCIE slot, provides two SATA interfaces and one IDE interface. Among its two SATA interfaces comply with SATA2.0 standard, the maximum transfer speed can reached 150MB/s, IDE interface comply with UDMA66 standard, the maximum transfer speed can reached 66MB/s, it can provide complete bandwidth for HDD transfer.

 

At same time MRT provides abundant accessories, includes terminal serial port and programmer tools. MRT programmer tools can read and programming to HDD's ROM chip, and it not only limit to HDD, all ROM chips accord with SPI interface can use MRT programmer tools to write, such as computer host BIOS chip, it is very convenient.

 

The subsidiary USB to UART adapter of MRT is design for repair HDDs, at present similar products of UNMA can't work normally in some HDDs, especially Seagate HDDs after 12th generation due to design defect. The common performance is terminal has no order or terminal has messy code. MRT USB to UART adapter has been improved its design and completely solve the problem of no order or messy code.

 

In software, at present MRT data recovery software has been upgraded to the latest 2.0 version. The new version has WD, Seagate, Hitachi (includes original series and newer ARM series), Toshiba, Fujitsu, Samsung, Maxtor and other factory utilities, and it also include the latest DE tools, which is used to image disk and explore documents. The new DE improves handle mechanism for bad tracks greatly, which make MRT not only can handle bad tracks well, but also can completely play SATA's high speed transfer ability.

 

MRT WD utility has all functions that PC3000 UDMA has, besides, it adds the function of generate ROM automatically and can support all series HDDs, it is convenient to replace circuit board. It also add function of generate 03 module and convenient to repair 03 module. MRT WD utility also have particular diagnose model function, for HDD can't ready and couldn't operate inside, you can virtual firmware area and handle it by diagnose model. Data recovery of WD HDDs have a common problem, namely HDD can't get ready, can't read module lists and can't do most operations. In this situation, PC3000 UDMA can only handle it by heat exchange, it is complex and recover rate is low. For this, MRT adds the unique diagnose model to solve the problem of this kind of HDDs, it is easy to operate and increase the recovery rate.

 

MRT Seagate utility supports read and write tracks function and support all series HDDs, add read and write SA ABA function, at present, users can operate SA of Seagate HDDs when HDD can't get ready and can't identify disk, increase the repair rate of hardware damaged breakdown. For Seagate HDD's breakdown such as "the former after the bad", MRT provides the latest translator recovery tools, it can repair the problem of "the former after the bad", if you are familiar with the tool's using skills, the repair rate can reached 90% above. MRT Seagate utility also have the function of copy terminal serial port data, support most series. If Seagate HDDs can't be repaired, as long as terminal serial port can work, it can explore user data in terminal model and can be seem as backup plan for data recovery of difficult HDDs.

 

Seagate F3 series HDDs have lots of breakdowns and kinds of error code, such as common LED error, DWF breakdown, SIM breakdown, read and write subsystem error, terminal reports overlay error and so on. Which needs more experience to judge and repair Seagate HDDs' breakdown, so MRT laboratory concludes a set of universal repair methods? Whatever the breakdown is, the methods use the same operate processes, you needn't to analyze where and what cause the breakdown, how to repair the module and other problems. Universal repair methods are easy and convenient, needn't analyze error reason, it has a high repair rate and increases the efficiency greatly.

 

New version of Hitachi utility adds virtual translator function, which solve the problem of the former after the bad effectively. New version of Toshiba utility adds high speed read and write CP module in ATA way, it supports some newer series and needn't connect terminal serial port.

 

Through several months' upgrade, MRT has been upgraded from 1.0 version to 2.0 version, at present MRT English version has been published and sale.

Introduction of MRT hardware

 MRT is business software developed by MRT laboratory, which used to repair HDDs and recover data. The product includes software and hardware: hardware includes MRT card with PCIE interface; software includes multi professional software tools aim at different series HDDs.

MRT SATA card is a new generation extend card which based on PCIE slot, it is one of several HDD repair devices with PCIE technology and native SATA interface in similar products. MRT SATA card provides two native SATA interfaces and one IDE interface; it can connect two HDDs at same time. So called native SATA interface means the interface is not transfer by bridge connection through IDE interface. Advantages of native SATA interface is that it can play all functions of SATA agreement, including high speed transfer speed which can reach 150MB /s, supports plug and play, NCQ and other functions SATA has only. Use PCIE interface can play all speed advantages and it is hard to find the old PCI interface in current main board, so it is popular to use PCIE interface. Using PCIE and SATA native interface avoid many problems caused by using USB interface. Due to features of some USB interface device itself, when connecting breakdown HDDs, if HDD stop responding, USB device will dropped, too. At that time, system can't find device and cause some problems. Use PCIE and SATA native interfaces increase hardware's stability greatly, which makes MRT can handle breakdown HDDs and recover data stabled.
