  5. hi , i have STM3500418AS Dimondmax 23 500g ,after i update to new version firware CC3D and see problem in my HDD and that was similar BSY error that u said. anyway, i didnt find RS232toTTL so i decided to create it (by schematic that Master VideoRipper put), i did it but i mixed up by ground connections?! 1. in schematic, connected GND of HDD Jumper to 15(IC) but in first post tutorial we dont use GND of jumper!? 2. can i connect all GND (DB9 , C5, C6, 15) to themselves? (GND is shared for all of them?) excuse me for my bad english and very bad knowledges
