Has anyone had experience with these Toshiba HDDs? An examiner pulled one from a Toshiba copier yesterday and hooked it up to our write blocker. FTK Imager freezes during imaging. After reading documentation about the HDD, it looks as though it wipes itself if it is connected to anything other than the copier.

They were briefly mentioned when the technology came out

I believe they are more strictly self-encrypting, not really self-wiping, though the net effect is the same.
