Hello I have a "Barracuda.ES.2" affected by the "BSY error". Serial N°: 9QM8DLBE Model: ST3500320NS Part N°: 9CA154-052 Firmware: MA07 DateCode: 09173 (manufac. date): (2008 October 27th) SiteCode: KRATSG PurchaseDate: ????-??-?? FailedDate: 2010-07-08 OEM/RETAIL: OEM (Dell) UserName: HallBert Country of User: Canada fail reason/fine: no detect in bios OS/PSU: WinXP/LITEON I'm trying to un-brick the drive using a CA-42 cable (chinese clone). A problem arise when i type "Ctrl+z" in the hyper terminal, i don't get the prompt "F3 T>". Nothing happens. When the PCB is mounted on the HDD in a normal way (no isolation between the contact head and the PCB),i get this message about every minute: "LED: 000000CC FAddr: 0024AFF9" (should indicate that the drive is in a busy state ?) I'm stuck there...Bad cable??? problem specific to the HDD model ??? I have done some research without finding a solution. So i need some HELP!!! Thank you!!! P/S A soldering between a point on the USB PCB and a small black cable was broken.After resoldering,the loopback test was OK.Also,this CA-42 cable have previously been used to un-brick a couple of affected drives.
