If I were you, I'd take it back to where you bought and ask for replacement under warranty, but would definitely not use the 7200.11 again... I have the spin up problem... but if I will bring it back to life, will just backup data and smash it with a large hammer... Anyone with the "Error 1009"??? Isoxene brought it up (I followed ther link above), but there were no solutions, as I saw...
Hi, Any help would be welcome, as returning the HDD is not solution to my 480gigs of data (mostly family pics and videos... I'd rather kill myself than to loose this) My one is a ST3500320AS with the problematic formware. It stopped after a year usage, and I was not aware of this Seagate problem... I've been through a "million pages", read everything, so decided to do this. I did the Nokia DKU-5 method. Everyhting is OK... until the spin up command. If I cover the motor contacts, or cover the head contacts, the result is the same... the HDD does the same... the sound is like the head moves to a way, then pulls back... moves, pulls back... so it doesn't spin up... after a while this stops... I receive this message on the terminal window: F3 2>U Error 1009 DETSEC 00006008 Spin Error Elapsed Time 7 mins 17 secs R/W Status 2 R/W Error 84150180 F3 2> Spinning Down Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.142 msecs Delaying 5000 msec Jumping to Power On Reset Bogus ISR Help needed and any help is welcome... thanks
