  1. guys, now i just used a nokia ca-42 cable like in post number 1950 link so many thanks to user "gnakh" and his very good guide! i used exactly the same nokia cable but i didnt use batteries! i just powered the usb cable with a 4 pin fan connector! it was the second try with the nokia cable and after getting strange outputs in hyper terminal i could successful recovered my data! :thumbup thank u all, it is unbelievable and so improtant to get all files back! crazy :hello:
  2. hi guys, i bought that converter; http://cgi.ebay.de/DIGITAL-CONVERTER-CMOS-...id=p3286.c0.m14 it has 5V as u can see. but now i got it and i can see a mark: "3V" on the ttl-converter. i successfully made the looptest but is it generally possible to use 3V adapter? i think not, can someone give me the answer? bye
  3. first, i covered the contacts at the sata end! (like in your video). that is what u mean, isnt it? ------------ i had no success! loopbacktest was ok and i can type in hyperterminal: "ctrl+z" --> ok "/2" --> still working "Z" --> no reply ----------- now i covered the other contacs like guide (http://www.mapleleafmountain.com/seagatebrick.html) recommend. and i have the same probs... --------- i just want to know what i can try now..... -------- like in the guide a have not connected anything to HDD-GROUND.... -------- RX (ttl) --> TX (HDD) TX (ttl) --> RX (HDD) GND (ttl) --> 4-pin fan connector like in the guide VCC (ttl) --> 4-pin fan connector like in the guide --------
  4. hi KlingKlang yes of course, here we go i use http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT the loopback test worked....so i can see in the hyperterminal the letters i typed... now i tried the spin off but how i said no success at all... i am a little bit confused now. the guide i linked above says to try both contacts if the first doesnt work. so i started with the one in the lower left corner....no success, now i tried the one in the middle (3 contacs).....again no success....
  5. hi again, i had some success but unfortunatly i have some issues with hyperterminal. i cant spin down the motor, i tried both contacts on the hdd-board but i get no answer after writing "/Z" in the console... i think this will only take a sec. can someone help me and give me a hint. i followed that guide: http://www.mapleleafmountain.com/seagatebrick.html thank u guys!
