  1. Initial credits for the idea of this list go out to poolcarpet: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=824992 To all seagate barracuda 7200.11 SD15 (and other version) owners, either broken down (by "no detect in bios", 0GB reported disc size & "the click of death") or still functioning fine: Please register to the msfn forum and add your data to the list below so we can take a stand against seagate corporate practices. Moderators on the official seagate forum claim that our problems are not statistical significant, but judging from numerous complaints spread out over the internet we think they are! However, without a serious dataset (1000+ cases, from different countries) we don't stand a chance proving it statistically wise. So please help by adding your data. Although the list is not helpful in restoring acces to the defective drive, we believe it is needed to: 1: Give an overview of the international spread of the problem 2: Document enough failures to disprove the claim of seagate moderators that this problem is statistically insignificant (And yes I consider this to be feasible, just look at how many people have viewed the main thread already! Their data (if relevant) is more than welcome) 3: Provide insight in the history and nature of the problem; when did the excessive failing start & do drives manufactured before a certain date last longer? Personally I think that when the dataset includes enough drives over a large enough timespan (preferably including drives manufactured from september 2007 - present) patterns will emerge from the data, probably showing an increase in the rate of failures after a certain point in time. Ofcourse this is part speculation, but can you find (online) evidence of prior events where 7200.11 drives crap out at such a scale? If this point in time can be linked to a change in seagate production lines, like the arrival of new designs, new components, relocation to a new factory, etc. and combine this with the technical findings of fatlip, pichi, etc. we'll have a better chance understanding why this present massive failure event is happening. Most of the data can be collected from the sticker on top of your harddrive (please keep in mind that you preferably do this when the computer is powered down, be safe). For purchase & fail date, use your memory or check receits/bills. If you are afraid that seagate will "blacklist" your drive, then only add the first 3 or 4 characters of the serial number. We will use a simple seagate date code calculator tool to translate the 5 digit code listed on your harddrive to the date it was manufactured. Thanks for your time and spread the word! At the main thread sieve-x recently posted an official statement of seagate regarding the nature of this issue: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...mp;#entry830686 Upload your data in the

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    To all recent contributors: thanks for sharing your 7200.11 experience with our humble dataset This side thread is mainly dedicated to collecting information and drawing attention to the BSY bug affecting seagate 7200.11 drives manufactured before January 2009. Most current information and general rants can be found at the main thread (also located at the hardware hangout of MSFN forum): http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...&start=1080 The issue has been reported online since October/November 2008 and seagate has indeed acknowledged it and released a firmware update to prevent your drive from being affected. However, this update can only be applied to drives which have not yet been affected. Presently seagate does offer a free data recovery service for drives disabled by this problem, but chances are that it will take them quite some time to process all requests. Data recovery is also possible with various recovery kits (prices ranging from 500$ - several 1000$, for links see main thread), but for a low cost homemade solution see this thread (also located at the hardware hangout of MSFN forum): http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...t=0&start=0

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    DerSnoezie - I'm not sure that you've added my first fail (above), just the second one I posted - #106 on your list. You're absolutely right, sorry about that! I've fixed it right away. That's great news! I'm glad you were able to recover your data And @ dadou: Thanks for sharing your 7200.11 experience with us! I sure hope the procedure of the free data recovery service offered by seagate won't take ages B)

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    I'm not sure.. The symptoms appear to be similar, but your model and firmware type tell me you have a 7200.10 drive.. If the disk is no longer recognised, regardless whether you check/exchange sata cables, try other sata ports on the mainboard and excluded the possibility of a faulty power supply or other external factors, then you should pretty much have pinnend it down to this type of issue. However, for now i can only say that the BSY bug seems to be restricted to the drive types mentioned at the seagate knowledge base: http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/self...sp?DocId=207931
  5. LOL, that's actually a pretty fat squirrel But i guess we'll never receive any feedback on the true numbers.
  6. DerSnoezie

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    Great, they'll certainly be included in the next update of the figures, which will be after the next 50 or so entries. (or when interest for the issue completely dies, whatever happens first)
  7. DerSnoezie

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    Ah mooi Op de main thread zag ik trouwens net een post met een verklaring van seagate die inzicht zou geven in de ware aard van het probleem, maar die moet nog worden geverifieerd. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...mp;#entry830686
  8. The quite reasonable numbers you mentioned above certainly do not look like a "purple squirrel" to me. Thanks jaclaz!

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    Thanks, I will be updating it today Hi, I've added Finland to the map, thanks for your entry. As long as your drive is detected at Bios level you can perform the firmware update offered by seagate. BTW The actual manufacturing date of your disk is 4 march 2008.
  10. DerSnoezie

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    Our humble dataset is only a very small sample of the total amount of 7200.11 drives out there. Your country isn't listed because no one based in Norway has yet provided an entry. However, judging from the wide spread of the entries, this appears to be a large scale issue; even large enough for seagate to publically anounce a firmware update.. So chances are that you'll receive a faulty drive, depending on it's manufacturing date. Check this link to the seagate knowledge base to find out if your drive will be needing a firmware update: http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/self...sp?DocId=207931

    Wow, the list is still growing! Israel will be added to the map.
  13. DerSnoezie

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    Hi GDR, the dataset is dedicated to specific problems (stated in my first post) with 7200.11 drives. However, if you would like to start a new topic based on this list concerning the particular issue you mentioned above, feel free to do so. Maybe you could PM members who provided an entry and ask if they will also add information about their chipset.
  14. DerSnoezie

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    Thanks for the new entries! Kazakhstan has been added to the 7200.11 "plague" map. Edit: Issues reported from Kazakhstan appear to be not directly related to our main problem, therefore Kazakhstan is removed from the map.
  15. - Save it. Maybe it'll make a good story for your grandchildren - Trash it to get rid of your frustration with seagate - Use it as guinea pig drive in other experiments
  16. Yes, credit where credit is due. Especially considering the tech stuff
  17. Great job Gradius! And why did the guy above quote the entire fix?! Edit:LOL BTW Maybe you should PM the moderator to ask if this topic could also be moved to the "sticky" section.
  18. DerSnoezie

    Seagate 7200.11 fail & fine dataset

    First of all: Thanks to all new members for sharing your 7200.11 data with us! Second point: Please pay attention to the particular unfortunate experience below, which was reported by donnerzusel: We have repeatedly warned for the dangers of "upgrading" your firmware from SD15 to AD14, but now even some seagate support employees appear to be making this mistake.

    And we greatly appreciate that the MSFN forum provided a solid & objective platform for our efforts!
  20. They're most likely having problems processing the huge amount of visitors attracted by today's developments. Maybe you should try a little bit later or restart your browser..

    Seagate has officially acknowledged the issue. Check out the links in the post above yours. And I'm pretty exhausted right now
  22. Seems that today is a good day after all Thanks everyone for your tremendous efforts in building this thread and MSFN forum for being our host.
