The Solution for Seagate 7200.11 HDDs

oh ere ! after doing all the suggestions still nothing only Error 1009 DETSEC 00006008, come on DOC dont spare me, its not looking good is it?

Does it attempt to spin up when powered on (or DID it BEFORE you detached/insulated the PCB contacts)?

If Yes, somehow you have a bad contact (or somehow managed to fry something, which IS a problem :unsure:).

If No, your disk may suffer from a sticky bearing, which may be a far worse problem :ph34r:):

Hi again,

the drive has always made this sound from when it was inside casing to when i have detached the PCB, it does it for aroung 10 mins then goes silent. here is a link to the sound may need to turn your volume up a bit. cheers

Hi guys, congrats on the great tutorial.

I have 2 Maxtor Hd's affected by the firmware bug, both of them were not detected anymore by the bios, but since im busy I bought a "fix kit" for them at ebay of my country, with cables, cds, tutorials and everything.

The thing is that on the last command the guy who sold me the tutorial messed up, he wrote that I should type:

"m0,1,1,0,0,0,0,22"

it kept going with messages of User partition Format 0% complete, Zone 00, pass 00 LBA xxxxxxxx ErrCode xxxxxx"

tons of it, then the format change to 1%,2%,3%,4%,%5 and after 40 minutes I called him and he told me to try again from step 0, I did, same thing happen,

after I did some research and found this topic, where i saw the

"m0,2,2,,,,22" command, which I tried, now the Disc is acessible on the windows , but it shows like a disk without any partition

I also tried this command with the other HD and worked like a charm, the HD is perfect.

About the first HD, do you guys have any clue about what the "m0,1,1,0,0,0,0,22" command does? and how to recovery the data ? It's kind of really important for me.

Thanks!

FormatPartition Level: T The FormatPartition function recalculates the translator using information in existing defect lists. It also clears specified defect lists (optinal). void

m[Partition],[FormatOpts], [DefectListOpts], [MaxWrRetryCnt], [MaxRdRetryCnt], [MaxEccTLevel], [MaxCertifyTrkRewrites],[ValidKey],[DataPattern]

Parameters

[Partition] Index of partition wich translator needs to be recalculated. For the system partition index is 1, for the user partition index is 0.

[FormatOpts] Defines the format process options. If this parameter is 2, no modification is made to partition contents. If this parameter is 1, the partition is filled with pattern 77 77 77 77... Value 6 is the same that 2 except no detailed information about format process is written to the log (less write operations in system partition).

[DefectListOpts] Defines operations performed with defect lists. If this parameter is 2, defect lists are not changed. If this parameter is 1, P-List for specified partition is cleared. Warning. The FormatPartition function may fail if P-List is cleared becuse the function is not able to handle all possible types of defects.

[ValidKey]

Ensures that the command is not accidental, must be 22.

That's no good, I had a lot of data in that HD, I interrupted the process after like 40 minutes, it was still in 5%, is there a chance to recover the other 95% that was not refilled with 77?

Maybe (if you are VERY lucky).confused.gif (and I think they probably meant it was filled with 1's, not 7's)

Start a new thread and we will see if someone can help.

Really sad news, thanks for the help.

If really only 5% was wiped it means roughly 5% of 500 Gb = 25 Gb

This (if the drive was a "single BIG partition) means that no useful filesystem data can be retrieved.

BUT of course file based recovery would work allright.

If the drive had been recently and thoroughfully defragged, the probabilities of recovering a high percentage of the remaining 95% are pretty high.

If the drive was heavily fragmented probabilities decrease dramatically (expecially if files were biggich, like .iso's or movies or large databases or large compressed archives)

If the drive was multipartitioned, ANY partition starting after the 5% should be FULLY recoverable.

Start a new thread, and we'll see what can be done.

Hello Gradius2 i had the same question. and i just really need a yes or no cuz to be honest when it come to being this far in computer skills im a noob. my segant is a 1.31T i believe and i have 158gb of memory on it. my computer recently crashed and friend recovered all my memory and put it on to the segant my dad got. now i belive i have the 0 LBA error because i got freaked for my segant shows that all data is gone when i gointo the folders( all folders are still there) but when i press properties it says all my data is there. it is very important for me to get my data recoverd wich is why im asking if the process u listed will wipe my data clean or will it recover it all. please respond soon for if it will recovermy data then not only are u a god but then i can sent this page to my friend and he can follow ur steps. i just cant risk loosing all my data. please please please help me. :unsure: o and my computer is a windows xp not sure if thats relevent or not but in case it does thats my system.

i had 1 other question, if i only have a 0 LBA error do i have to take the whole segeant apart hook up all the wires and put it back together? or can i just follow the steps below. please help form anyone and everyone would be very much appriciated!

A HyperTerminal mini-guide:

For Windows XP users, you'll find it here:

Accessories > Communications > HyperTerminal

Or under RUN, copy&paste: "C:Program FilesWindows NThypertrm.exe" (enter)

Configuring HyperTerminal:

Just ignore this one, isn't useful anymore (that was used back in BBS time):

01.jpg

Press CANCEL and then YES, and finally OK. You'll have this screen:

02.jpg

Type Seagate (if you want, any name is fine here).

If you get the same screen (1st one), just do the same: Cancel, Yes, ok.

Now choose the COM port, generally you'll use COM2 (check your computer devices to know the port available). If you don't have ANY COM, you'll need to buy an USB to RS232 adaptor.

So, I'll use COM2:

03.jpg

Press OK.

Now the speed, just let it like that:

04.jpg

And press OK.

Under View, select a smaller font, like 9.

You should get something now as soon you make a connection with Seagate HDD (and everything is connected of course).

Keep in mind, be real careful and don't even try this if you're afraid.

Gradius

Hey Gradius2,

You could be a hero if i can recover my data (ANY of it) with this.

After the above steps, it that the proceedure complete and the drive ready to connect to the pc or is there then more steps to get my data back.

Thanks

After all that, your drive will be ready to use it again (before the state of this stupid error).

Since there is NO stable firmware (of fixed firmware) until date (thanks $eagate!), I recommend to backup your datas as soon you recovery the HDD.

If you can see the folders (but not the files in them) you ARE NOT suffering from LBA0. (and you won't find ANYTHING useful in this thread, please start a new one (DO NOT post here on this thread, start a NEW thread) with an actual EXACT description of the actions taken, current status, etc.

Keep in mind these:

http://homepages.tesco.net/J.deBoynePollard/FGA/problem-report-standard-litany.html

http://homepage.ntlworld.com./jonathan.deboynepollard/FGA/put-down-the-chocolate-covered-banana.html

as a general guideline.

In any case, should it have been a LBA0, yes, you would have had to "dirty your hands" and "have to take the whole segeant apart hook up all the wires and put it back together", do you really think that if it was fixable without specific hardware, and by simply running a few lines in hyperterminal we would instead be suggesting the actual (complex) procedure as we do? :w00t:

i had 1 other question, if i only have a 0 LBA error do i have to take the whole segeant apart hook up all the wires and put it back together?

No/Yes/No for the three parts of your one hypothetical question. If you only have a 0 LBA error (which you do NOT have), you do not have to take the whole segeant apart (meaning you can leave the PC board on as it is not in a locked state), but you still have to hook up all the wires to get communication.

now i belive i have the 0 LBA error because i got freaked for my segant shows that all data is gone when i go into the folders( all folders are still there) but when i press properties it says all my data is there.

No, you do not. Start a new thread as jaclaz suggested.

Also see if anything here helps

Hello ALL<

i know u said not to reply but i had the question if u know what is wrong with my seagate if its not a 0 lba. if u do then when i make a thread could u please postonto it? today ive been taking pictures of the screen and the error that comes up my system the seagate system...ect.. and wat should i call the post to get people to know exactly wat the problem is and people can help me. ya i know im a noob but i never make threads normay dont need to. and when it comes to external drives for example or the inner part of the c drive for example i dont know what sometings mean or wat to do. and i havent unplugged the seagate becouse i dont know if i do anything to it like unpluggng for example will loose all the data that is actually on it. i thought it was a 0 lba becouse everything comes up as 0 sept that i do have foldrs on there, the data inside is just gone. but if i go into the properties of the drive it says there is 154gb on the drive which is accurate for everything that was saved on it. so everythings there but i cant see it and the "bios" i think are showing 0gm,mb,k.bytes..ect... but i havent done anything to the drive sept open folders and look at properties im to affraid of loosing everyting i dont want to touch it till someone says its ok. my boyfriend suggested a new drive i should get but first i need to save the data on this one.

all my data is on the seagate becouse recently i as having a boot problem were it would got to the emachine logo like normal but after that it would go to a black screen and we would have to boot it again to even be able to go into safe mode options. my friend (who if it had been a 0 lba error i would take to do the taking the drive apart and stufff) was able to save all out data from the c drive and saved it onto the seagate drive my dad bought brandnew during the last blackfriday. everything was working great i was playing WOW stright after we got it back and my friend even made sure that it wosnt WOW that had coused the crash in the first place. and it wasnt so i got to play and i was all happy.

april 12 i pulled an all nighter till about 5am then i exited game took a 20min nap and got ready for school. so now it was the 13th i got home from school and turned on th monitor. thats when a message came up saying delay write failed and it kept sayig the data was lost maybe due to hardrive or network conection. and i freaked plain and simple i opend the i drive(seagate) and the folders were all there but inside were empty, even subfolders were gone sept in document and settings folder were is showed all users and then inside all is empty. i called my friend and he didnt know but was gonna look into it but since its our senior year in highschool and we have 21 days left hes been really busy and hasnt goten back to me since the 13th. the message that keeps poping up is a Delay Write Failed for I:\$Mft. but i dont know wat that is.

so i dont know wat to do. and now even though u probablbly dont want it and hate me for giving u so much to read now u know what happend. i hope u can help and if u cant can u please at least help get wats important out of wat ive writen so i know what ot put on a new thread? please. ha i feel real pathetic and noob but im desperate and i need help i have to mny important files on that drive like family photos for example of deceased relatives :( please help. and please reply. u could be a life saver! and i could use one real bad. specially since it was without couse and had worked only 9 hours befre the problem and no one else touched the computer at all inbetween. so im really stumped and agian im sorry for wriing so much. :blushing:

and sorry to everyone else who tries to help me for agian i wrote a crap load but all help would be apriciated!! and all help in creating a new thread would very much be needed and apriciate. it wold be my 1st thread :blushing:

so now i know that its not a oLBA error so now im back at square 1 :(:}

thank u all for ur patiance. i have good software skills but i am severely lacking in hardware knowlegde so again i apologize for that...
