Yep, but you also need a desktop to supply power to the disk, or anyway a suitable power supply. Use the mapleleaf guide: http://www.mapleleafmountain.com/seagatebrick.html If the size is detected as 0 then it is possible that it is a LBA0 problem, though there shouldn't be the "clicking for awhile". jaclaz Hmm, my disk my just be toast then, as the size is "unknown"?
Is this all I need to perform the fixes described here? I want to make sure I get the right thing. I believe I have a LBA0 error with my ST31000340AS as it has started spinning up, clicking for awhile, and spinning down. The Bios detects it but cannot determine the size. http://www.ebay.com/itm/FT232BM-BL-Seagate-Barracuda-7200-11-Firmware-Fix-tool-complete-USB-powered-/280748167812?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415de51284 Thanks
