Head Replacement Tips for Seagate Disks

This function can transplant donor disk's head adaptive parameters to patient disk's ROM, aiming to decrease incompatible situations and time consumption of head replacement while increase the success rate of it.

Before using this function, we need to get the ROMs of patient and donor disks. Patient disk needs head replacement usually can not be ready and will keep busy status, so we'd like to recommend to read its ROM out via Bootcode mode. This is the tutorial link of how to read and write ROM via Bootcode mode: http://us.mrtlab.com/tech/seagate/137.html

Once we get the ROMs of patient and donor disks, we can use "Seagate Changing ROM Auxiliary Tools". We import ROM from patient in step 1, then import ROM from donor in step 2, and last click "ROM(Adapt heads)" in step 3, then it will pop up a dialog box to let us save the newly generated ROM, as shown in the picture:

Finally, we use Bootcode mode to write this new ROM to patient disk, and this will greatly improve the success rate of head replacement.

In fact, this function can be done in ROM tools of MRT software:

Select "Tools->Firmware area object viewer->ROM tools", use BootCode mode to read ROM out, then click "Importing adaptives from ROM image file" to import the saved donor ROM, select "Head Adaptives" in the pop-up dialog box, and click "Save" icon to save this newly generated ROM.

 In the end, we still use Bootcode mode to write this new ROM to patient disk, and the effect of it is just the same as when we use "Seagate Changing ROM Auxiliary Tools". Both of them can greatly increase the success rate of head replacement.

The above all are the contents of how to increase the success rate of Seagate disks' head replacement, thanks for your reading!
