I've managed to update the firmware and get a response from the drive but it seem to get stuck at this stage.

With isolator

hmmmm... So I just need to downgrade the firmware, fix it through the serial port with the busy fix, and update it again. Hmmm. I'll definitely try this.

To the guy having no output from the drive itself, try connecting the molex ground to the usb->serial converter AND to the drive ground. It's the pin to the left of rx and tx.

If you do not you understand me.

I speak better English, but I write poorly.

Items are accurate.

Everything is here.

See you

Me gusta todo lo que tiene que ver con la ciencia.

Suena en plan pijo, pero no es así.

Soy algo golfo.

Chavales, gracias por ponerme algo al día en temas electrónicos.

Estaré en software, me gusta más.

Saludos

I have done exactly as in this diagram. I am using USB to TTL:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...em=200360064779

I get nothing from HyperTerminal when connected to PCB. I have checked all connections and tried rearranging them.

Loopback works fine.

Find out if the adapter is powered from the USB side. If that's the case, you don't need to route power from the PSU. Instead, you'll have to connect as follows since the drive uses GND to communicate with the adapter:

Adap.VCC(5V+) <---> Not connected to anything

Adap.TX <---> Barracuda.RX

Adap.RX <---> Barracuda.TX

Adap.GND <---> Barracuda.GND

Connect the drive to the PSU like normal.

POST: xyz

The GND wire is connected?.

The hard disk makes strange noises?

The operation of the disk is normal?

Put your hand over it a bit.

First - thank you for your amazing guide. I'm about to try and fix my BSY hard drive.

I just have a small problem, this link http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...8807&st=100 no longer has pictures working. I would really like to see where you put the "paper card".

Is there an updated guide?

Regards

FNi.

Hey everybody, just one more quick question, sorry --

are the guides in the first pages of this thread still the best to go by, or have new approaches emerged in the course of the thread that are easier/cheaper that I should be looking into instead?

Just want to make sure I do it right!

Also I have a 7200.10 with the same problem, I hope this procedure will work for it too!!!

Okay, thank you! Goodbye! :)

hello

i have a seagate st3500320as firmware sd15 bricked

so i tried this forum's method with a dku-5 nokia cable

but when i have to enter the U command i had this error :

Error 1009 DETSEC 00006008

Spin Error

Elapsed Time 8.617 secs

R/W Status 2 R/W Error 84150180

so i stopped everything and cleaned up my connectors

There is an UNOFFICIAL italian translation of the guide here:

Images and a "full" guide with images is here:

Just read this post or the post just above yours.

You have to remove the pcb to put the cardstock down anyway, so you might as well try it.

EDIT:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...st&p=850705

It mentions post #701. SPIN ERROR was from no contact on the PCB. When I had the same problem, I unscrewed the screws a tiny bit, then tightened it back down. Spin Error went away after that, and I was able to continue to the next step.
