After about 45 full seconds or so, 4 happens, rinse lather repeat Regards and good luck! I don’t like power-cycling drives repeatedly I shouldn’t have to explain why, you guys understand. They are incredibly complicated, precision devices.

INIC-1607E, INIC-1608L, INIC1610

So drive cloning or similar things dd, etc. The PCBs arrived this afternoon. I found a post here — http: Hard drives are not lawnmowers, washing machines, or coffee makers. You need proper tools. Are these flashable using some kind of serial or TTL interface to the drive itself?

Assuming the drive is detected as it should to start with. Maybe a hardware based cloning tool might help as it will send soft-reset, hard-reset and power off-on the drive as needed.
