  1. I had fixed my Seagate 500GB drive using Nokia cable and procedure here: http://www.overclock.net/hard-drives-storage/457286-seagate-bricked-firmware-drive-fix-pics.html Used a laptop with the Win XP Media Center Edition. Win XP did not find the driver for the cable (PL-2303 driver). I found driver here: http://code.google.com/p/adconverter/downloads/detail?name=PL-2303%20Driver%20Installer.exe&can=2&q= Then I did everything according to the first link and before typing m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 in HyperTerminal after powering down the drive for 60seconds and plugging it back and waiting for 20 sec when I was typing in HyperTerminal it did not respond. I had to close terminal and start a new connection (did not have to use the business card trick) this time, just set the connection and typed /1 and hit enter, here is the screen from the HyperTerminal: F3 T>/1 F3 1>N1 F3 1>/ F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs F3 T> It finally worked!. Backing up my drive now! Thanks to everybody who had contributed to the solution of reviving the Seagate drives!
