Samsung Hard disk drives belonging to VICTOR, PUMA, VICTORPLUS, VERNA, VERNALITE, and VANGO families do not use a conventional modules table; their ROM codes contain offsets, which define the locations of modules, but these are not linked to any names or identifiers.

Older families of Samsung drives use a normal modules table stored in ROM. Tables of modules in those drives may differ as regards the location and the number of modules depending upon firmware version. As a rule, when Main Code gets loaded to memory, the drive’s firmware writes to disk surface a FIT module containing the modules table identical to the one in the code being loaded. A drive does not work with that module after that.

Modules table contains for each module its name, cylinder of its location, sector, length, numeric identifier,
flags informing about module track and indicating whether a drive checks module header during work with it. Module
header is preserved in the utility and substituted to the table during initialization.
