Companies put in chips that make the drives not shuckable. Very common. Nowadays you are more likely to get non shuckable drives unless you research before hand.

I have to block pin2 (or was it 3?) on the SATA power plug to get my WD to spin up after shucked.

The last Seagate portable USB drive I bought had a crappy Jmicron USB interface chip inside. Even if shuckable, I wouldn't bother, not worth the data korrup1ion.

Guess I lucked out. All the WD 10TB drives I've shucked didn't need that mod.
