    Since I've paid 25% tax on these, the price will be to high for EU I guess.

    They are great, I just have way to many spinners at the moment...

    As a private customer I don't think that is possible, sorry :) I ended up at around 33€ each.

    I just thought i'd add my two sense in here, we have a few EMC shelves around full of 900GB drives, and we wanted to re use them with windows. I can confirm that using this command
    sg_format.exe --format --size=512 --six -v PD1
    does work in HP Gen 8 server. I tried them both as single drive RAID 0 and two drives RAID 1. I can also see the drives in the EMC Shelf and attached directly to the server, using LSI SAS card. but the real thing i wanted to mention, is the time it takes to format a 900 GB drive, and i have 5 shelves i think, with 24 drives per shelf, it would take a month. So, if you are using windows, and the sg_format.exe, here is a much faster way to do it

    1. scan the drives to get the PD numbers: sg_scan.exe -s
    2. format using powershell jobs and do them all in tandem: (1..25) | %{ Start-Job -ScriptBlock { C:\sg_format.exe --format --size=512 --six -v "PD$($args[0])" } -ArgumentList $_ }
    3. You can then check the status with Get-Job. There is no output, but this will make it go WAY faster!

    Totally agree. I did mine under Linux and formatted all of them in parallel. There is probably a limit depending on the number of sas channels per drive.

    This works flawlessly if needed to be read by windows/linux. Hoewer using few of these in a logical drive works even if drives are formatted with 528bytes sector size. Great info. Thank you for sharing.

    I have similar HUC106060css60 disks with different revisions.
    and i try all options to format this . but no result anyway.

    every drive formatted without errors, but i cannot create partition on it.

    sg_readcap gives prot_en=0, p_type=0, p_i_exponent=0,
    also all drives doesn't have specific marks like NETAPP etc.

    btw i have 1068e LSI card, in IT mode and centos 7.

    any ideas to go?


    upd: when i try to write to "formatted" disk by sg_dd - have a error message code - ASC=81 ASCQ=00

    in HGST book this mean " Vendor Unique - Internal Logic Error F719 Recovered Abort immediate error or F75B Too many sectors "

    maybe try a newer controller, I've had luck formatting countless #s of these with an H310 flashed to LSI IT firmware which is a 2008 chipset

    hice idea, i can try it, but i don't understand how controller type may influence to so simple operation as format... in this case controller - just a sender one string of command....
