  1. Got as far as the spindown again, Drive Spin Up did not complete... ______ EDIT Oh, and a torx wrench wasn't needed. My smallest allen wrench (0.05") worked just fine. It fits in the screws snuggly, and doesn't even damage either the screw or the wrench.
  2. Try some other commands. There is a (partial) list of commands here: http://files.hddguru.com/download/Datasheets/Seagate/Seagate%20Diagnostic%20RS-232%20Port/ Are you doing this with: all contacts connected head contacs insulated motor contacts insulated (please choose one) jaclaz Head contants insulated with a piece of folded over notebook paper. I found that if i did ctl-z and then /2 with 1 second of drive power on i get the F3 2> prompt However if i issued the Z command immediately then, it gave the error LED:000000CE FAddr:00280569 If however i waited a short duration before issuing Z, it stopped responding at all not even echoing Z

  4. That is strange Did you set up your HyperTerminal correctly? Did you do a loopback test? Yes i did a loopback test when i recieved the adapter in the mail... Both Tx and Rx must working and connected right, or Ctl-z wouldn't bring up the f3 T> prompt
  5. OK this is driving me nuts... I have a USB to 3.3v TTL serial adapter hooked up to the debug port on the drive hitting Ctl-z drings up the F3 T> prompt BUT, NO OTHER COMMANDS RESPOND /2 does not bring up the F3 2> prompt it just sits there! hitting Ctl-z again shows another F3 T>, but i cant get it to access level 2!!!! The drive is an Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31000340AS SD15, and should work with these instructions to fix it... but i must be missing something.... And yes i did try searching before posting... hard to search for however with the forums search restrictions, so i manually scanned 170 pages before posing.... Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong or missing?
