For sure I don't want to make things more broken than they currently are so I will try going with the standard procedure and let you know the outcome. Hi all, I've just completed the procedure and it worked! (I had a few strange error messages, sorted out by tightening the screws on the PCB=- Thank you very much. Ciao! Max
Hi Jaclaz, thank you very much for the explanation. Actually I used the wrong search words (I used "replace PCB" "working PCB" etc.) For sure I don't want to make things more broken than they currently are so I will try going with the standard procedure and let you know the outcome. Ciao! Max
Hi all, thank you for this great post. Yesterday morning I turned on my pc and the BSY issue came up. I tried contacting Seagate but they said there is no bug, until I finally found many posts on the web. I've tried searching on the thread without success so excuse me in advance if my question has already been answered. I have two ST3500320AS, only one of which is currently facing the BSY issue. I'm only interested in recovering data from the dead drive. What happens if I replace the PCB of the dead drive with the one from the working drive? Is the dead one coming back to life? They are same model and have same firmware. Thank you. Ciao! Max EDIT: I found some posts of people asking the same question but I found no answers :-(
