Yes, I am developer
At first, WD drives have 3 commands for rom:
No command read rom without modules, so this
can not be truth
Maybe somethings getting lost in translation here, either my end or yours -The rom is read and dumped with WDMarvel using the "read rom" button, the resulting file is missing information, this missing information is the same as that held in sepearate modules 0A, 0B, 0D etc on the other hand the rom dumped with another tool tool has this information.
I don't understand how this is "not truth" and implying otherwise is incredibly rude - atleast for us native english speakers, there is absolutely nothing to be gained by me lying here....
Absolutely useless idea, because again, no command read rom without modules
I never stated anything about such a command - again i think somethings being lost in translation, I'm suggesting a software implementation to check data integrity based on the size and offset location in flash rom - the reason this would be useful is because i was initially under the impression the rom dumped with WDMarvel was valid all along - which as I've gathered later down the line it's not. this would prevent mistakes
No matter, you read encrypted image, then write encrypted image, nothing was changes in rom
Ah, ok - i thought the OS might alter the resulting data in this case - especially with an extension.
I write empty roms without modules in PCB almost every day, because this is part of ARCO process, and all PCBs work after this operation
Vlad I'm getting the vibe that your getting defensive on this subject, please don't, I'm not casting blame here - as i said at the beginning of this thread I'm sure the majority of the issues I've faced are down to my user errors and aren't related to the program itself - but on the same merit - a great software developer knows when to take constructive criticism.
Save resources into work folder
Feel free to dump rom, rom modules, modules and tracks in one click
Then why not just have the program do this automatically? or provide a check box in settings "automatically backup Rom & Rom modules for new drives" remember if it wasn't for programs such a sediv trial doing these sort of actions i wouldn't have a valid Rom & Rom modules at this point in time - which as far as i understand it are going to be required if i ever hope to recover data on the drive again - however unlikely that may be.
Maybe overlay file damaged?
Possibly, although i try using an overlay from memory which didn't work, as well as an overlay from same & similar model drives with my microcode and i get the same result, any ideas?
Wrong, this define mod 02, overlay just upload 02 from media to RAM
Ahh, i do have mod 02 and i do believe i tried that but i can't remember the result or log output, I'll give it a try and see what results i get - although ill have to use WDR as my month is up.
Yes, not 100% translated, but in each version such messages number decrease
Fair enough, i think it's great that this program is in active development which is more than can be said for other tools it seems, like i said - if you want me to translate the text into something readable let me know.
