Excellent!!! It takes me 5 minutes to unblock my 500gb 7200.11 GREAT thanks for Gradius2 and for all of those who posted here. Specially those which wrote instructions below: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&...st&p=857054 I Used CA-42 cable bought for 1.99 GBP (inc delivery) as per this post: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&...st&p=874541 The only issue I had in the beggining was that I've connected Red cable (should be TX according to instructions) to RX on HD, Blue cable (should be RX according to instructions) to TX on HD and Orange cable (GND) to GND on HD and it doesn't work so I swap the cables and connected Red to TX on HD, blue to RX and didn't connected GND anywhere and it works great for me! I am still unsure if I've connected cables other way round first time or are just colours different in my cable? Any way now, 400 gb of my "back from the dark side" data is been transfered to the external drive and I am thinking to upgrade 7200.11 drive... Could any one let me know how to do it please? Once again THANKS!
