If you can not update the firmware from seagate because idiots do not allow this even if I have firmware SD11 are likely to receive error LBA0 again? Can I safely use hdd? Or you can do to be able to update? My life no longer buy Seagate and I recommend to all my friends not to buy either.

DO NOT be obsessed by "firmware updating", the condition that can cause the problem is an extremely rare event and statistically will happen again, without any firmware update, no sooner than three to six months of intensive use, you have ALL the time in the world to perform the firmware update after the unbricking, and even if it bricks again, you now have the tools and knowledge needed to unbrick it in a few minutes. Upgrading the firmware is a risky operation, DO NOT DO IT unless really necessary, and ONLY do it AFTER you have your DATA back and backed up on another media.

I too seem to be having trouble with the 7200.11. I am firmware SD81, which is known to have BSY problems, though Seagate doesn't admit it.

In any case, I followed the steps for the BSY issue, but that didn't fix it. I did have the symptoms of that issue, but there is something else going on as well. The drive powers on, no weird noises. The BIOS does see it after a cold boot of the machine, but it does not see the drive after a restart or reset button. Though the BIOS shows it, no OS recognizes the drive. While the OS initializes, you can hear the drive moving (like normal), but you don't see the device, leave alone partitions.

I have terminal'd into the drive and again, spin up, spin down, all functions return. I have posted various outputs of the on-line diagnostic commands. Please let me know your thoughts. I sincerely appreciate your input!

Hi All,

I have followed the instructions and everything went well, although at the last step I didn't get a "success" message just:

F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22
Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 0000


This took about 12 minutes.

I power cycled the drive and before hitting Ctrl-z it says:

Rst 0x20M
RAP subfile error 2044
RAP subfile error 2044


I have searched here for anyone else getting this message and didn't get any hits ...

Is there a diagnostic command I can enter (in Putty) to establish if my drive is OK or not?

Thanks in advance!

Des

Your best bet is to try running again from scratch.

Hi, Im new to the forum and I'm a little lost on the recovery method.

I noticed Gradius posted a link to seagate fix tool on ebay that would do the same thing without splicing the cables and wiring. I just wanted to know if I need a separate power supply to connect to the sata power port before I buy this?

You need such a power supply expecially AFTER you have bought the referenced item ;).
:lol:
But you can get it from *any* desktop PSU, at the most you may need a Molex 4 pin to SATA cable/adapter, something like this one:
Spoiler


An alternative is to buy one of those El-Cheapo USB adapters, example:
Spoiler


If you have not a clear idea of the procedure, read the "alternate" and actually suggested as it is more detailed, with images and what not guide:

I really appreciate the quick reply jaclaz :thumbup , I saw a lot of tutorials out there and some had a power supply connected and some didn't so I was a little lost. Luckily I can just salvage a power supply from my old desktop.

One more question, although I think I'm answering it as I type it. I noticed on mapleleaf's tutorial he had two additional cables from the serial line going to the power supply. I wouldn't need to do that if I bought the ebay item since that is USB powered right?

Yep :yes: (meaning NO :no: :w00t:, you won't need the two additional wires to power the adapter), just in case REMEMBER GROUNDing.

Hello. When i found your forum I was very happy because there was a solution to the annoying problem of this drives. But unfortunately it didn't go as it supposed to.
I bought the adapter from ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1497.l2649
connected everything but I can't get past this step:

F3 T>2

LED:000000CC FAddr:0025BF67
LED:000000CC FAddr:0025BF67

I manage to get the F3 T>, but when I type 2 and hit enter I always get the LED errors.
I have tried both the "head" and "motor" methods and also by completely removing the PCB board but all three methods returned the same error. I also tried waiting 20-30 seconds before hitting CTRL-Z in all three methods as someone suggested in the previous posts. My drive is not ES. If I try to run the drive with the PCB board screwed on the HyperTerminal also returns a LED error, just with a different number.

If someone has any other ideas...I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Hi everyone.

I am looking at this drive for a friend. I had no luck in getting his drive to say anything to me, so I dug up an oscilloscope to take a look at what was happening at the pins. It looks like there is somewhere around 4 volts on the RX pin and 2.6 volts on the TX pin. These reading were taken when nothing was hooked up to the hard drive. I am assuming some components on the board have gone bad.

I would appreciate any helpful feedback.

First things first. Did you do a loopback test? See the FGA for more info. (especially no. 4)

I did do a loopback test. I have several usb-ttl devices. One is a bus pirate and the other two are spark fun devices. I modified one of the spark fun devices to work on 3.3V as per their guide. They were all capable of talking to themselves. I was even successful hooking them up to each other and sending data from one serial console to the other.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I am not sure to get it.

Forget about voltage on pins (temporarily).

Is the disk LBA0 or BSY? :unsure:

Or none of the above? :w00t:

It isn't picked up by BIOS, so BSY.

Can you confirm it by using Victoria or mhdd or hdat2?
If the PCB has some components gone it may not be BSY, but simply "not working".

I broke down the setup to power the hdd. I will have to move some stuff around, but will report back on what I find.
I am guessing that I can find information on: Victoria, mhdd, and hdat2 in the forum?

Thanks again for the input.

They are "very specific" apps, you won't get much info here on MSFN, but Google helps ;).
You need only the basics, in Victoria there will be a "BUSY" indicator, HDAT2 is more complex but well documented, MHDD is possibly the most "difficult" to use.

Hi everyone,

My Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500Gb decided to get into a "permanently nap" due to the firmware error.

I made my own USB to TTL and was able to follow the steps until
F3 1>N1 (enter)

Next, i remove the power plug from my HDD and wait over 10sec (20s better), then, I and plug it on again and wait another 10 seconds

In HyperTerminal, i press Ctrl+Z to get the
F3 1>
input again but nothing happens. If i do it with PCB board out of the HDD (like in the first steps) i get the prompt.

So, what i'm doing wrong?

I tried to boot the disc and in the BIOS i get the 0gb label, so i must use the
F3 T>m0,2,2,,,,,22 (enter)
command. But i can't get to that step due to the issue after mentioned.

Also, i tried to run HyperTerminal with the PCB unmounted, stropping the disc motor (Z command), mounting the PCB again, starting the disc motor (U command) and then
F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter)
but the disc don't do anything for over 1h.

I'm a bit frustrated and don't know what to do now.
Thanks
