Toshiba USB Compatible SATA HDD

Postby odedshankar » 09.05.19, 08:57

Hi Guys,

I got the following USB Toshiba 2.5" drive:
MQ04UBF100
AZA AB21/JU002U
DATE: 28SEP2018 so relatively new drive.
USB PCB Number: G0034A

Does anybody know what is the compatible SATA drive or SATA PCB version?

Thanks

It's not exactly rocket science here. Just replace the "U" in the model number with an "A" and it's the SATA version of the same drive.

i know that mate, that's what i usually do with Toshiba drives, but always prefer to validate it with someone that already tried it for a specific drive to save cost on donor drives. Better to be on the safe side of things.

Hi, I used a PCB with the A but didnt work, maybe is something with the PCB Number?

Customer drive>
MQ04UBF100
AB21/JU002U
31 JUL 2018
PCB NUM: G0034A

DONNOR drive:
MQ04ABF100
AA00/JU000A
3 Nov 2019

Please, what I am doing wrong?, Now I just receive Toshiba USB drives.

Thank you.

Hi there,

can be few issues, like FW corruption and faulty heads which are the actual problems with the drive.

Cheers

For G0034A you should use G4311A, so your conversion is correct. If it 'doesn't work (that could mean a million things, does it not spin up? does it spin up but doesn't ID? etc), then something else is the problem.

Perhaps an obvious question to more experienced guys, but given that it's your first post I've got to ask..... did you transfer the ROM chip from patient to donor?
