About Mr.Shaky

  1. After getting stuck, I unplugged the power, then went to Gradius's revised directions on page 8 of this forum. Also of note different from Garcia's directions was that I put the cardstock under the MOTOR contacts, not the HEAD contacts. Didn't even realize the page 8 directions said to do that until you pointed me at the Canadian link. Thanks much. I followed those directions exactly, powered down when told to, etc. All three partitions came back perfectly! Here's the code from my HyperTerminal window after powerdown: (note the very short time to power down, because the disk wasn't spinning due to the cardstock under the motor contacts) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.153 msecs F3 2>U Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.351 secs F3 2>/1 F3 1>N1 F3 1>/T F3 T> F3 T>i4,1,22 F3 T>m0,2,2,,,,,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00008DED, ErrCode 000 00080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs F3 T> Many thanks to all, Gradius2 and the Canadian dude.
  2. I tried following the instructions on http://sites.google.com/site/seagatefix/Ho...le-instructions but found an error--it never told me to use /T to get to the T-level commands. And, it didn't say to power down the drive, so I didn't. So I hit /T, then m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (return) and nothing has happened after 20 minutes. What should I do? Drive is still on, waiting...
  3. My drive is under warranty and I could get them to send me a new drive before I return mine. Would it work to just take the board off the new drive, put it on my old one and get the data off it?
