Hello, I've been reading a lot of posts on this topic. I have ST3500320AS which I think has BSY error, because it's not being detected by the BIOS. So I've been trying to follow this tutorial with no luck with the step where I type "U" in the hyperterminal. I've tried cleaning the connectors on the board, shaking the drive after typing "U". I even tried the freezer. But nothing seems to work. I tried disconnecting the the connectors to just the head, just the motor and both - still with no luck. When I type the "U" command, I can hear the motor spin up, but then while it's spinning I can hear a very quiet "tic" sound, repeating 5-6 times within ~30 seconds and then I get this error: F3 2>U Error 1009 DETSEC 00006008 Spin Error Elapsed Time 26.848 secs R/W Status 2 R/W Error 84150180 I'm using the Nokia CA-42 cable. I don't care about the drive, but I do have ~30000 pictures on it that I want to restore. Can somebody give me an advice? Thank you in advance.
