  1. When connecting power to your HDD via PSU, do you remove: - GPU power - 12v Rails power to motherboard - Fan connectors - etc. So from your PSU do connect power to the HDD only? Thanks!
  2. Aviko, do you know if the method/commands will work for a ST31000340AS that has SD81 firmware? This is a HDD from a Freeagent Desktop 1TB... Cheers! Can I use this enclosure to power HDD, instead of my Desktop's PSU? I'm scared of damaging my Desktop, it's only a week old now. Better to potentially damage an enclosure than an entire computer. Note I've bought a USB to RS232 converter for this fix, and am planning to use my Notebook:
  3. Big thanks to Gradius, fatlip and all the people involved in this project! Two quick questions here: I have a 7200.11 ST31000340AS, but with SD81 firmware (Freeagent Desktop) instead of SD15 firmware. Is it likely that my SD81 drive will run the same commands as SD15? I've bought the USB FT232BM DL from the eBay link provided... besides the jumper cabling, will I need a battery, or can I use the power provided by the USB port? Thanks a ton.
