Thank you!! I did it (too)! I ordered a USB-to-TTL adapter from Ebay. It took more than two weeks for delivery but that doesn't matter anymore. What bothered me was that after the last command I got this message: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 00 secs Formating was done in zero seconds! But I decided to give it a try and right now I'm backing-up my data
