  1. Your cables are definitely connected right if you can talk to your drive through Hyperterminal (that is the only purpose of all the cables). Are you sure all your cables are connected when you test your drive again after the fix (eg SATA data cable )? You can also try the so-called optional commands given by Aviko here. Hi Bloubul, Yes I plugged everything, even tested the cables with other 2 HDDs and they worked fine. I tried the commands you said (Aviko): F3 T>/2 F3 2>Z Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.152 msecs F3 2>U Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 9.686 secs F3 2>/ F3 T>F712 Byte:0712: RealTimeUpdatedFlags = 00 00 Byte:0712: Bit:0, HPA_SET_BY_SETMAX = 0 Byte:0712: Bit:1, HPA_SET_BY_SETMAX_EXT = 0 Byte:0712: Bit:2, DCO_SET_ACTIVE = 0 Byte:0712: Bit:3, CONGEN_READ_FROM_MEDIA = 0 F3 T>F,,22 Drive Configuration restored to defaults.

  2. Hi everyone ! I have a Seagate 7200.11 HDD with the BSY bug (ST31000340AS / SD15), and used the Gradius steps to fix it. Everything was fine - the cable (Nokia CA-42) was adapted, the connections ok, ect. Even the commands were fine: 1º Attempt F3 T>/2 F3 2>Z Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.149 msecs F3 2>U Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 9.746 secs F3 2>/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 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 000 User Partition Format 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00008DED, ErrCode 000 00080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 10 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 10 secs F3 T> 2º Attempt F3 T>/2 F3 2>Z Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.150 msecs F3 2>U Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 9.723 secs F3 2>/1 F3 1>N1 F3 1>/T F3 T>i4,1,22 F3 T> F3 T>m0,2,2,,,,,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 000 User Partition Format 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00008DED, ErrCode 000 00080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 10 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 10 secs F3 T> But it still not recognized by the BIOS. Any idea what should be missing here? There's any chance that the cable/connections are not set right, even with the hyperterminal commands results ( as presented) ? BTW, I respected closely the suggestions of "timing" and "shutdowns" steps. Thanks
