Don’t take Quicks post as a final answer. I have a Hitachi 79 and along with many others do not need 3.0. Try upgrading to 2.0b that is what gave xgd3 capability in the first place. If it then works great and chances are good it will work. If it doesn’t work then your drive does check for ap 2.5. Again I have a 79 and can confirm my drive DOES NOT ap 2.5 There are also numerous others with Hitachi 79 drives claiming the same results. There only seems to be a small population of those that are affected with Hitachi drives. Instead of sitting around waiting for a long time you might as well do the 2.0 upgrade and see if it at least works. Hitachi’s are incredibly easy to upgrade and so long as you do it correctly it isn’t going to hurt anything anyways.
