  4. Thank you for your time! As soon as I have a result, I will post back!
  5. Thank you! I have read the read-me-first and these were the parts I needed to clear out. I will connect the hdd to my pc power unit so I don't have to gnd the hdd and the USB-ttl if I got it right. I will order and come back if need anything. Thank you for your time!
  6. So let me get it straight, if I order this I have only to connect the rx and tx and gnd with my Sata and follow the commands in the Hyperterminal? Or am I missing something?
  7. Hi! Since I'm having trouble with my 500gb st3500320as drive and my pc is rather new, can I use the parallel Port instead of a serial port? I started reading the forum but it is too long. Thank you!
