MRT User Guide For 188.8.131.52 version
MRT-WH software that hard drive disk trade has been expecting to repairing WD and HITACHI2.5” HDD is now showing at the market. It is one of the few software which provided with powerful function to repair WD and HITACHI 2.5"，It can rapidly improve the efficiency of maintenance work. We have devoted all our efforts of years to this software. It is remained that MRT has always been stressing the style of powerful function and easy operation. Believed that it can certainly become a great assistant of yours.
It can use in both date recovery and HDD repairing，It is used with the UDMA and PCI-PC3000 to support WD drives , It has realized peculiar way of reading and writing by modules or ROM and tracks. The procedure has designed the templates to adaptive head, It is easy to be known how to adaptive head. To generate ROM from firmware, This is not completely solved that the other software to auto modify ROM modules Adapter Parameters. MRT-HITACHI2.5” procedure provides a quick calculation of starting address of date area. It can rapidly generate adapter parameters of NV-ROM. Increased some functions of WD--DragFly1, DragFly2 and DragFly4 in MRT 184.108.40.206 version.

How to install MRT
1、To run autorun.exe of the installing CD.
2、Installing the "Sentinel "driver program or the "Sentinel " will be not able to work normally.
If you use Windows 2000 system，You must install Win2000 hotfix（The second option））.
If you fail to install hotfix，then you need to install it in safe mode, Press F8 key when enter system.
3、Installing VS++2008 runing database.
4、 Registration active procedure：
Fills in the name and the registration E-mail, this is very important and cannot change, otherwise the software can not available.
To click generate registration information and send the generate file to the author.
After we accept the registration document, We will be running the opposite registration document and installing program.
After verification，We will be sending you the “ Setup.rar”.
Open the “Setup.rar”，To run“MRT Active procedure”again.
Click “Load active files”：
Find out “upw” and “ key” document，Click “Confirm”, Then “Active”，completed active work.
To start“Setup.exe”，Always Click "Next" to complete the installation.
Operating area introduction
Mrt is the professional software operating with the firmware files. Not support reading directly from the HDD firmware. It is necessary to use the other tools to read the HDD SA area data before work with the firmware. So the software can be used normally.
Only by correctly initialized to make MRT enable normally work. Each of drive parameters is different. MRT can be loaded parameters and calculated correctly after right series selection.
Confirm HDD manufacturer
Each hard drive manufacturers only produces their own series .，For example Western Digital，Hitachi.
Each company would upgrade their products from time to time, For example WD L board and triangle board.
Confirm the sub-series
As the different parameters, each family has many sub-series.
The automatic detection will help you to search the sub-series automatically.
Confirm the access method
“What firmware can you read？”，It is very important.
MRT can support both "Read from modules" and "Read from tracks".
You must load right tracks parameters before reading from tracks.
According to actual situation to modify the parameters.
The translate utility for firmware. Each firmware corresponds to its own data structures and algorithms, MRT included a number of master algorithms, it is helpful to repair the firmware by algorithms, so the way you work will be very efficient.
Distill and Unite
ROM consists of individual sub-module. The Distill is the process that get the ROM into individual sub-module, The Unite is the opposite work.
“ROM tools àdistill /unite ROM”
Work with the damaged head. This can repair the hard disk, but will reduce the capacity.
“modules ->kill head”，display a dialog window of kill head，as follows：
This is work for killing head 0. Click “confirm”, then write the modules of log to the HDD.
Work with the damaged sector.
“modules ->Edit LBA”
Display a window “LBA view” as follows:
Import beginning address of damaged LBA, Click “Kill specified LBA section”
Write the modules of log to HDD SA.
“Modules ->clear SMART/clear defects compiler”
Write the modules of log to HDD SA.
First to open P-List and G-List.
“defects function menu->view G-List/P-List”
The other work use “Right key menu”
Intented for head map modification, you need to do the step when killed head.
“ROM tools->kill head”
This is to delete 5 and 6 head.
Intented for head parameter modification.
“Tools->Adaptive parameter adjusting”，
Select adaptive modules.
Open the file, and loading adaptive data from outside, then start comparing.
Missing original disk firmware can be re-generated by software.
Generated specific tracks parameter of WD HDD.
The method mostly as the Kill head method, but do not select all the head and “synchronize ROM and SA defects”.
“ROM tools->Generate ROM from modules”
Intended for resolving the problem how to match WD L board.
“ROM tools->Auto adapt ROM”，Click “confirm”.
Intended for finding out fault of the firmware.
“modules ->modules test”
The red log is fault.
The red log is fault, as follows:
“Tools->View SA defects”
Result as follows:
Provided changing modules of tracks , It can make the modules of damaged sector get into right sector.
Modules dir main window.
Select the track of need to change.
Load backup Micro modules.
Select the tracks of need to change.
Resolved the problem that pci-pc3000 not support WD triangle board series.
It can be read the WD triangle board series firmware by using PCI-pc3000 with MRT.
Display the modules dir correctly by pci-pc3000
1）Back up the second largest minus track.
2）Save the showing tracks to Tracks dir，name“xxxx-00.trk”(“xxxx” stand for number of track)
4）Generate modules dir.
Click “confirm” twice.
5）Write generated 90.rpm to -1track.
6）Do not off power, reset pci-pc3000.
7）Open the modules dir, PC3000 modules table can be correctly displayed.
Repeat the step 1,2,3 of modules dir mode, then work as follows:
1) Generate tracks dir.
“The largest minus track->The second minus track->Generate->Generate list->Current using->ok” window as follows:
Write generated 90 modules to -1 track of HDD, Do not off the power, reset pc3000.
Delete all the contents of Tracks folder. back up all the modules using PC3000，Save the modules to Tracks folder.
Set up MRT，changing modules into tracks.
Reset MRT，To select “Load 。
Now the firmware can be worked as using UDMA with MRT.
Write the modules to HDD after operating modules.
Write the new generated track folder to the HDD.
