Seagate Rosewood Head Connector Codes

by Aug 31, 2022

Seagate Rosewood Head Connector Code x 300When data recovery professionals are selecting a matching Seagate drive for parts, it’s important for them to get a good match so the heads can read and write to the drive. In a previous post, I listed some common rules for identifying a Seagate donor drive. This post is specific to the Seagate Rosewood family of drives (A5, AE, AF, 8C). The Rosewood family consists of 500GB, 1TB, 1.5TB, and 2TB mobile drives in the 2.5″ form factor. The following information may not necessarily help when choosing a donor drive, but it is interesting to see manufacturing codes over a period of time.

The following list only includes drives that have been in our possession. The data is not from any other sources. We do not accept submissions for addition to our list. We still have boxes of these drives we intend to add to the list in the future.

This Rosewood internal head markings list includes the Seagate model number, first 3 characters of the serial number,  firmware revision, date of manufacture, and the internal code stamped on the head connector plate.
