|The drive is running as a slave (it was a master but when it failed I switched it over to try and access it). I've run Western Digital's diagnositics and it comes back with:|
Model Number: WDC WD400BB-60CJA0
Unit Serial Number: WD-WMAAE1011564
Firmware Number: 16.06V16
Capacity: 40.02 GB
SMART Status: PASS
Test Result: FAIL
Test Error Code: 11-Cable Test::Read diagnostics sector error!
Test Time: 19:30:25, December 26, 2009
BUT the cable is not bad! I have used another slave drive on the same cable just to make sure and I hae swapped out the cable with the same results. I assume it is something internal to the drive hardward. Am I out of luck except for sending it off to a data recovery service??
