Re: [Bug-ddrescue] Tip: Improving recovery chances with Seagate "F3" mod

Western Digital drives are sometimes afflicted with a "slow issue" which results in an extremely slow cloning speed. The following thread describes how to circumvent this problem.

Fixing the "Slow Issue" manually:

The fix could be incorporated into ddrescue, or it could be implemented as a small helper application. However, it requires a little knowledge of WD's Vendor Specific Commands, or access to certain commercial tools.

If someone would be willing to write this tool, I would be only too willing to help, but only if the code were open source and freely available to all. The procedure is extremely simple and the code would be very small. In fact I could perform the required task with a small MHDD batch routine.
