yesssss words straight from a hard core data recovery guy, there are commands that don't go over USB.
and in fact step one was to bust that baby open and don't try jack Sh*t over usb. That wasn't even on the dinner menu.. EVER.
you never recover data over usb.. E-V-E-R... well that is if you really wanna get your stuff back.
maybe that isn't par for generic "programs' but the real deal guys go native and pass commands right over the controller to find your stuff.
