I am no longer willing to let seagate hide this problem and continue raking in the £££ at the expense of pc users. I will be writing to newspapers, magazines, retailers and watchdog (UK) to ensure that the spotlight is drawn on this issue and i am sure if enough of us do this, then something will get published eventually. It might not help us get our data back, but it will ensure nobody else has to go through the rubbish we have.

Oh and the details of my drive for the list (bear in mind it was not delivered or installed till about 10 days after purchase):

May I suggest www.theregister.co.uk as a good place to start!!!! Once it's stared the info
will make its rounds amongst the tech websites. Don't forget to mention the poor Seagate
website support forum and to mention names too!!!!

Hmm.. the first 9QJ.. Thanks for the data!



* When you enter your code (08496) in the date code calculator (Posted by icefloe01)

I just found this:
Seagate date code calculator.

You have to create a login to get it. Once you extract the files from the zip file, you have to drill down to this point:

SeagateDateCode\SeagateDateCode\SeagateDateCode\bin\Debug

to find the executeable.

Nevermind, I just did a megaupload:

http://www.megauploa.../nl/?d=HS5ZEL4O


You get the date: 12/Jun/2008.*

Here's a post I found on another web forum on the net. http://www.avsforum.....php?p=15488709

A poster there used the software "speedfan v4.37" to monitor smart, fan speeds and temperature. It might be useful
software as monitoring software.

You should take a look at "Failure Trends in a Large Disk Drive Population" by Google. One of their key findings has been the lack of a consistent pattern of higher failure rates for higher temperature drives or for those drives at higher utilization levels.

Failure rates are known to be highly correlated with drive models, manufacturers and vintages. This seems to be the case with the Seagate 7200.11 models. One of mine has just experienced the "BIOS not found error".

Otherwise, I've never really had problems with the small collection of hard drives in my server. I sell any drives that have had a scan error. Google reports that after their first scan error, drives are 39 times more likely to fail within 60 days than drives with no such errors

My disk is equal... 08495 ;)

I just don't want to make my serial public since Seagate can see this thread and blacklist our drives.

How about at least the first four characters so we continue to see the trend of affected drives...?

Would also be good to post to the deal sites..... Fatwallet.com, Slickdeals.net, Bensbargains.net, etc. They get TONS of traffic!!


I'm willing to order the hardware/software from SalvationData... As I understand, it costs $500US and comes with directions etc. Will let you know how that goes...

Seagate would be crazy to start blacklisting our drives!!!! We have done absolutely nothing to void our warranty! If they do so, they're just begging for a lawsuit.

We have already begun to switch our business over to WD.... Thousands of units per year!

Just upgraded my 500GB drive to a WD 1TB Enterprise drive! This is one that hasn't yet failed, it's my 1TB data drive that died!

Just wondering what happens if I plug my drive in a EFI-based computer. Since there is no BIOS the HD detection should be different, no?

Just wondering what happens if I plug my drive in a EFI-based computer. Since there is no BIOS the HD detection should be different, no?



As long as it has a BSY signal I don't believe EFI will be able to communicate with it.

Anyway, i purchased a ST3500320AS Drive recently 9BX154-303:SD15:09142 and I'm following the threads about the problem. It's running fine so far and it's pretty fast.

The difference is that it has the Site Code: SUZHSG (Made in China) and SerialNumber is 6QM06YHN (6QM instead of 9QM)


Should I be worried? This is my 2nd 500GB Seagate Drive in the system, the other one is from the 7200.10 Series and I have my important info on both drives.

I think I get rid of BSY since my HDD Led is now off ;)

Hmmm considering to open my New Macbook to try.

And then once you learn how to use it completely, you start a side business of data recovery and hard drive rejuvenation!! Depreciate it on business expense and your almost 100% profit from there on out!!

Ironically, i read Speedfan values (and ran an in-depth online analisys too) just a few days before my 7200.11 died. Every value was ok.

The angriest part in this story is that those drives may leave you randomly between one boot and another. With no early symptom.

For those who still have a Seagate 7200.11 running I strongly suggest to place your data somewhere safe as soon as you can. Seriously, even if your drive is running fast and fine.

I have the same problem. After running fine for some months, my HDD one morning suddenly was not detected by BIOS. Is dead since then.

Yep, there are absolutely no symptoms whatsoever for these fails, so i do not think that speedfan and monitoring temps etc is any use at all tbh. They work perfectly fine, then next time you try and boot, they are not detected.

I am writing from Italy.

I have a Maxtor drive with MX15 firmware, the same SD15 of Seagate. The problem is the same, my PC BIOS not recognized the drive.

I have build a RS232 interface with Max232, but I have always the error:

LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051
LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051
....
LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051

I try to press CTRL+Z on HyperTerminal, but I don't have access to the HD Console.

Please help me with technical tips, so I can try this and disclose other information.


Add my HD information below:

This site is ridiculous, just put any s***ty model and the page will be created dynamically with the chosen model, even if the model doesn't exist.

10 out of 13 drives listed here failed in Dec 2008. 1 failed in Nov and 2 in Jan. For those whose hard disk failed in Jan, when was the last time you powered up your PC? If it was december (maybe you went on Christmas holiday till after New Year??) then there might be a possibility the hard disk failed on the last shutdown in Dec.

If that's the case, that makes 12 out of 13 drives failed in the same month! Anyway 10 out of 13 drives is also pretty high.

Now, another possibility, any of you encountered thumb drive virus-es around the time your hard disk failed?? If this is virus related, it could explain the failures around the same time. Maybe the virus sent some weird sequence of commands to the hard disk??

Man, I'm getting way tooooo paranoid! :)


I am writing from Italy.

I have a Maxtor drive with MX15 firmware, the same SD15 of Seagate. The problem is the same, my PC BIOS not recognized the drive.

I have build a RS232 interface with Max232, but I have always the error:

LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051
LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051
....
LED:000000CC FAddr:0024A051

I try to press CTRL+Z on HyperTerminal, but I don't have access to the HD Console.

Please help me with technical tips, so I can try this and disclose other information.


Add my HD information below:

What is the effect if Seagate blacklists our drives??

EDIT: Looks like I am the first terabyte drive on the list, so it probably effects all the 7200.11 drives from kratsg....


My disk is equal... 08495 ;)

I just don't want to make my serial public since Seagate can see this thread and blacklist our drives.

Look, now they even filter out the keyword. Do they really have something to hide????

"Please come here to continue the discussion on the 7200.11 failing out of a sudden!

Now, I'm posting this - let's see how they filter this out. To everyone else in this forum, please go back to the Seagate forums every now and then and make sure as many new people know how to get here!!

"To all, please go to google and search for "7200.11 fatlip poolcarpet daftmule" - then click on the first link and bookmark it. We are continuing discussions on this 7200.11 failing independently."

Dang, it was the first result but now after all my postings in the seagate forum, it's the third link!!! Oh well, I hope people know how to look for the non-Seagate link! :)

Oooh, looks like they inherited Maxtor's reliability... or the other way around?

Either way, I'm gonna start looking around to see if I can dig out more info on the Maxtor drive than on the Seagate drive... perhaps there are more similarities that we could make use of...

I have rebooted my machine at least once in 2009. So that rules out some sort of y2k bug.

I am probably on a wild goose chase here, but I am going to spend the night trying to resurrect this drive. I have found a utility that allows sending raw ATA commands to the hard drive. I have found that Ubuntu's liveCDwill not boot with the hard drive attached but Slax will.

If anyone else is interested in mucking around the source code for the utility can be found at:
http://users.tkk.fi/...ctr/ata-query.c

Here is a list of hex ATA commands:

Look under section 4.3
