Nokia converters normally do not need to be powered, try without powering the converter (see if loopback works)
Not sure about it being seen in Disk management (or in your friends bios), might not be BSY.
Try the procedure once more without powering the converter, and if the same, let's wait to see what jaclaz says (might be something else).
I don't think anyone will like what jaclaz
may say. jaclaz
has the impression of looking at a bunch of headless chickens running around. corkyblue
(with very little of due respect
) seems like been panicking, which is EXACTLY what is not advised.
His friend seems like being EITHER well beyond "our" level of knowledge OR a completely unexperienced n00b pretending to be an expert.
NEITHER seems like having read (or understood) the main parts (let alone the trivial ones) of the FGA and of the read-me-first.Bloubul
, this time with ALL due respect
, seems like having forgotten (hint,hint) how Nokia hacking literature actually recommends having the phone battery FULLY charged before attempting anything with those phones.
All in all, jaclaz
has very little to say as the amount of confusing, probably misleading and definitely partially
incorrect info corkyblue
posted is simply overwhelming.
This reply makes NO sense:
4. yes seen in bios on freinds pc (his is XP) not on mine (mine is vista)
The BIOS "comes into play WELL BEFORE *any* OS.
It DOES NOT matter which OS you have installed on your PC, a disk drive is EITHER seen in BIOS or it is NOT.
Known possibilities are:
- no detection from BIOS (i.e. being NOT accessible because constantly in BSY state)
- having 0 capacity (LBA0)
- having a "random" capacity (different from it's real one)
Basically, posting on this thread ONLY makes sense IF you are in condition #1 OR #2 above, you seem like being in condition #3
or a "strange" mix between #1 and #3 .
The firmware "ZZ7L" DOES NOT exist (AFAIK).
As I see it there are two possibilities, the problem on your hard disk is seemingly outside the scope of this thread and beyond "our" knowledge and EITHER:
- it really had this "unknown" problem
- this problem was caused (intentionally or by mistake) by the recovery company
we can try and help, BUT you need to start trying to cooperate by:
- replying to questions EXACTLY
- provide EXACT descriptions of what you are doing/you did
- AVOID going off on a tangent ( I do challenge you to find ANYWHERE on this thread suggesting AIDA as a test method)
Let's start again from scratch, OK?
FORGET about the drive, just do a loopback test on the adapter (Binary, it either works or it does not).
Try powering it "with molex" and WITHOUT powering it, you should "see" the difference.
