Disabling bad head on WD with MrtLab tool

After power on a HDD, the drive makes click noize. Wait a while the drive gets ready. Notice the green leds at the bottom! Drive is ready now. Start a corresponding utility tool. There is no drive identification data. We can’t move forward and should resolve this issue. Let’s edit head map! Disable the last head. Main heads are 0 and 1 New head map saved to ROM Restart utility and repower a hard drive. No more clicking and drive gets ready in a short time. Start utility tool again and we can see a drive info now. Make a SA backup now!
