Hi friends, with your big help I fixed my Seagate ST3500320AS from 0gb problems. I've updated from AD14 to SD14 when the drive was in 0gb size and to resolve this problem I just used a Ca-42 cable and this command : F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22, [firm.SD14] I Received this output: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs I tested now the drive with Seatool DOS and all seems to be OK (Short and long test passed, SMART ok, low format ecc...) but If i try any command in the section to set the HD capacity I receive an error. For example if i try the command: RESET TO DRIVE MAXIMUM I have this: Errore on SetMaxAddressExt(97.......)=51:10 Is it normal or my drive has other problems?
