Hi guys, I just experienced this recently. I have 2 Seagate Barracudas ST3500320AS's one with SD15 firmware (working) and a brand new one with SD1A (recently broke- 1 month), it suddenly stopped working and couldn't be detected by the bios (im using an intel dp35dp board). I downloaded the drivedetect from seagate as well as the latest firmware update (boot cd). I tried to update the firmware and it did but the drive is still not detectable. Tests on Seatools also fail on it. Now I know the problem could be BSY or CC and I've seen the solution on the thread. But my question is, could there possibly be another solution to this problem? without having to take the drive apart and perform the jump on it? I'm quite familiar and able to do the hardware hack but I was just wondering if someone's already come up with a simpler and easier solution? If yes thank you in advance, if not. Thanks anyways.
