Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

Recommended Posts

121:9QM8****:ST3500320NS:9CA154-196:FSC6:09163:KRATSG:N/A:2010_01_20:OEM:Chilli:Austria:Busy:XP_Prof_SP3:BeQuiet350W

With motor connector & Heads connected I get busy error.

With either of them or both disconnected I get no communication at all.

Currently I'm stucked.

So this thing has a serial communication. If the engineers at seagate are no idiots (and I don't know any id*** that is able to make such a peace of high tec), there is a possibility to get into bootlader mode and flash directly over serial. Exactly for such cases where the terminal is not available anymore.

Anybody heared something about that?

Another idea how I can get the thing in service mode or prevent it from spinning up?

Help is appreciated.

Regards

Chilli

AFAIK, you can view a full command list, by typing "/C" on the first prompt and then "Q" afterwards. No guarantee though that it works. I remember having used that once some months ago. Try it, if you can risk a failure.

This is my second seagate that failed this month, and I have two. So for whatever reason they decided to fail this month. I returned the first drive(7200.12 1.5TB) that fail thinking it was freak chance, but after this drive fail, I decided to do some investigation. By the looks of it, they should of issue a recall months ago, maybe years. If they did, I won't of so angry because of my lost data.

I already requested an RMA, should I have any confident at all that the replacement drive is any better?

ST31000340AS S/N: 9QJOJQ7L Firmware: SD15 ~ daniel m, sacramento usa ~ THIS HDD IS LOCKED UP LIKE A BRICK.

@tvtruong ~ they now offer free data recovery if your hdd is one of the affected models. i have no clue how long it takes for seagate to ship back the hdd w/ all the data restored, but as far as i know they are not in a hurry :[

Hi all,

My Barracuda 500GB 7200.11 elected to brick itself on Thursday night (24th June).

Appears my drive stayed alive far longer than perhaps you'd expect.

I can't quite remember the Purchase date, but I can find it out as I have the original PO somewhere.

Cheers, Richard

I have now had two of these drives fail me. The second drive failed due to S.M.A.R.T. failures (I believe) where the drive would randomly fail to be recognized in the BIOS. This occured even while in Windows 7 64-bit. If it happened in Windows, Windows would lock up completely after the mouse began to move around in a choppy fashion. First drive failed from the firmware problem. I was unaware, because Seagate failed to contact vendors of their products, that a firmware update was even needed for my drive prior to complete failure. I therefore lost everything on the drive when it failed after a routine restart. Here is the drive information and shame on Seagate. I'll stick with WD from now on.

I'm still awaiting a response to the questions about the second drive's possible RMA. Sorry to reply to an old post but I just found this post and wanted to share my story.

Thanks,

Matt
