  1. Yo, did you try with the PCB totally off the drive? i'm in perth and did two drives yesterday for a mate n they worked sweet. coulda done a third but they had already paid $1200 to sum recovery place. Hi, I did not try with the board totally off the drive. Will try that soon Eddie
  2. In Topic: Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 Troubles OK, guys, had the same bsy probs as others. Did the RS232-TTL thingy but with no success. When I get to the U command, it takes 6 mins, then generates 'Spin Error'. I Previously had changed logic boards with similar drive but no luck. Have not done the TTL thing with dif logic board as I reckon it will not work. At Any other instructions I can send? For those in Australia who need an RS232-TTL converter, RS of Melbourne http://australia.rs-online.com/web/search/...vc=av_au#header Reduced 33% 444 x 186 (49.34K) I'm in Perth, ordered via phone early afternoon, flown in and delievered NEXT DAY! Cable works great, and on my sys had to select COM3, but very easy. As was the whole process. Just a pity it failed. Seems nothing short of swapping platters, which I can't do, will get my data back. Not critical but heaps of stuff that now requires re-scanning. Drive had been an external one. Advice to anyone else with sim prob. Don't wait, don't use drive more than necessary, do the TTL thing immediatley. I think my drive may have died totally owing to hardware failure following the BSY thing. Oh, one last thing. On some posts, they recommend putting card only under Logic to drive connection, on others, both drive and motor connection. however, if I do only the drive and not the motor, I get errors and it will not process.
