  1. guys can you please help me with my post in the other thread? SOrry for the duplicate post, i started a new topic by mistake when I meant to start one here... soz! hi all ive been fixing these 7200.11 BSY drives for a long time now using the original fix posted from Gradius (kudos to you mate!) so a client dropped off a drive (Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB) and I ran through the normal process, and still nothing... drive doesnt pick up at BIOS. So I was like OK... and did the optional extra step in his guide (which I have never done before)... still no luck! So I followed the post from Aviko (on this forum) ok lets start from scratch, try this: put some isolation under connector to heads (paper plastic etc.) motor have to be connected. power up drive. enter terminal, press ctrl+z. and this i am not sure, i havent any 7200.11 here to check, you have to try first try: wait until motor stops itself. then enter /2 and Z if you got message spin down completed remove isolation from pcb and mha connector (mha - magnetic heads assembly) screw on pcb to hdd. if you still dont get CC or CE its really good. now wake up drive with command U motor should be started and you should not get any error messages, otherwise you have to start again from begin. when drive spins up, go to level T (just enter /) now type F,,22 should appear message about restoring to defaults. then F3 t>/1 then F3 1>N1 if drive goes back to prompt ask for further instructions Now the drive is showing in the BIOS, but when I get into Windows it picks up the drive under device manager as a 2TB drive, but doesnt show under my computer. Can you advise me as to what I might do to get around this? Many thanks, Richard from South Africa

  5. dude im pretty sure it says that if you turn the drive off at that stage then you land up with a brick, and there is no going back! keep the power on, and I would start from the beginning. What happens if you hit Contolr-Z ? I would just start again, and include the "optional" bit cheers
  6. sorry I was doing something really stupid.. Thats another drive back from the dead!
  7. hi all id just like to say thanks for all the help here. I came here after a mate of mine had a drive that was in BSY state. I did the whole thing and I got it back up and running and he is a very happy man! so I got another drive, (im pretty sure the same problem) and I started the whole process again... I can connect to the drive 100% when I hit Control-Z, the problem comes in when I try to spin the drive down. I get this error. ( file attached ) Can someone please assist? I really need help here! thanks in advance!
  8. hi all im new here to the forum, great to be here. I have read a LOT of usefull stuff here from a lot of members who know what they are talking about... its a refreshing change! Most people in South Africa are more worried about being right rather than solving the actual problem!! Perhaps someone could assist with the below? I have this issue with a 1TB 7200.11 hard drive. Its SATA. I have tried lots of thigns swapped out cables, ports, tested in another computer and still no go. The OSes (Mac and Windows) both pick up the drives and you can navigate them for about 20 seconds before Windows pops "Delayed Write Failed" notices and Mac gives "Error code data could not be read or written" notices. After that both OSes stop responding for a while and the hard disk cannot be navigated (though it is still seen). Checkdisk tests passed as well as another 'data recovery disc' tried that was at hand, but still nothing. any ideas? Cheers
