Just found out that my 7200.11 developed the LBA=0. Question I have is about the adapter to use. I went looking around in my stuff and found that I have an old serial mouse with a femal ds9 plug on one end and a 4 wire connection in the mouse (assuming RX, TX, GND, and VCC but need to do a resistance check on plug pinouts to verify). Can I just use this cable to connect from the computer to the jumper terminals on the drive (along with providing power with the sata power plug)?
