Please could you also easily share the results of:

alias xstrings="tr -d ' \r\n' | perl -wpe 's/(..)/chr hex \$1/eg' | strings"
sudo cat /proc/ide/hdc/identify | xstrings
sudo cat /proc/ide/hdc/identify

I can run the Perl part for you, if need be, all I need from you is:

sudo cat /proc/ide/hdc/identify
