Ok, I removed the PCB and made various operations, all with Tera Terminal. Now the HD is recognized by the BIOS to 0 bytes. I search as you for next final step. No one knows an owner of HD Doctor for rapid sniffing on the COM port for LBA=0 command utility? Hi, Fabio
I am writing from Italy. I have a Maxtor drive with MX15 firmware, the same SD15 of Seagate. The problem is the same, my PC BIOS not recognized the drive. I have build a RS232 interface with Max232, but I have always the error: LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051 LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051 .... LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051 I try to press CTRL+Z on HyperTerminal, but I don't have access to the HD Console. Please help me with technical tips, so I can try this and disclose other information. Add my HD information below: SerialNumber:Model:P/N:Firmware:DateCode:SiteCode:PurchaseDate:FailedDate:USername =========================================================== 9QM7VZBP:ST3500320AS:9BX154-303:SD15:09146 (09/Oct/2008):KRATSG:Oct2008:24Dec2008:poolcarpet 9QM6X90B:ST3500320AS:9BX154-303:SD15:09115 (17/Sep/2008):KRATSG:Oct2008:28Dec2008:DaftMule 9QM6W2JE:ST3500320AS: - :SD15: - : - :5Dec2008:19Dec2008:DerSnoezie 9QM4G4PK:ST3500320AS:9BX154-303:SD15:08503 (16/Jun/2008):KRATSG:Aug2008:Nov2008:dskbrk 9QM3RWHJ:ST3500320AS:9BX154-568:SD81:08464 (20/May/2008):KRATSG:Aug2008:23Dec2008:ToKuRo 9QM7KSQJ:ST3500320AS:9BX154-501:SD15:09134 (30/Sep/2008):KRATSG:28Oct2008:07Jan2009:jeroen__online 9QM2MFS6:ST3500320AS:9BX154-303:SD15:08406 (10/Apr/2008):KRATSG:12Apr2008:23Dec2008:quattro150 9QJ0XJ01:ST31000340AS:9BX158-303:SD15:08496 (??):KRATSG:Aug/Sep2008:8Jan2009:Nichev 9QM717SF:ST3500320AS:9BX154-303:SD15:09114:KRATSG:13Oct2008:14Dec2008:PrOdiGy1 9QJ1LESR:ST31000340AS:9BX158-303:SD15:09063:KRATSG:Nov2008:27Dec2008:AVINNC 9QJ1AGEV:ST31000340AS:9BX158-303:SD15:08515(2/Jul/2008):KRATSG:Aug2008:Dec2008:Ruddrage 9QM6354J:ST3500820AS:9BX134-505:SD15:09084:KRATSG:July2008:20Dec2008:rainshower 9QM33FL8:STM3500320AS:9GT154-325:MX15:08396:KRTASG:Sep2008:30Dec2008:fabio.cillo
