The drive must be in a ready state before QuickTech can properly send commands.
There are multiple reasons why a drive may not be ready, some of which are valid conditions, and not errors.
While not technically part of DST, a Not Ready condition also qualifies the drive to be returned to Seagate as a failed drive.
A Drive Not Ready condition is reported by the drive under the following conditions:
• Motor will not spin
• Motor will not lock to speed
• Servo will not lock on track
• Drive cannot read configuration tables from the disk
If the drive is Not Ready, the drive may not detect in QuickTech Self Boot.
