1G/2G/3G Classic HDD-layout

I'm pretty certain there is a HPA/DCO on those drives, and that ATA pw is set .

There definitely is no ATA password, and I don't know of an HPA. I'm not even sure if the CE-ATA drive supports HPAs. The hiding of the firmware partition is most likely done by the iPod firmware. --TheSeven 20:04, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Also, when viewing the physical disk of my emCore'd Classic in win-hex (over USB) there is a 120MB entry,listed as "FAT1", and the technical report complains that " FAT1 < FAT2 " . But the disk needs to be connected to a proper controller for any accurate results ..

emCORE/Rockbox is a proper controller for that kind of operation. And WinHEX has a lot of problems with non-512 byte sectors, causing it to miscalculate a bunch of sector numbers. --TheSeven 20:04, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Or maybe the numbers don't add up because the HPA is there and thus the numbers reported are 'faked' ?

(Why the super-floppy formatting btw ?) Robert

What would a partition table be good for? Superfloppy seems like the straight-forward choice to me. --TheSeven 20:04, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
