  1. I have this drive as you can see on the picture: And the manufacturer data: ST31000340NS FW:MA08 P/N: 9CA158-053 Completely dead for the sata controller, and sata controller takes a lot to give up on reading. Seeing this forum and threads for the LBA0 and BSY error, I'll try to do such thing thinking I could be lucky. But the serial terminal is not locked, I can press CTRL+Z any time and put commands and they look like responding. Trying with another drive (different model and firmware) it shows on the screen RST, (P) SATA, ® SATA etc. etc. while plugging and unplugging, so if I can see it on my ES.2 it means something went wrong. How it sound when spins up? well, spins normal but in the time the heads make a glitch and has to make a pretty vibration, instead you ear 2 glitches one followed to another and there is no access from the computer, not even showing debug on the serial terminal. Follow the link to ear the noise: http://documentos.compunauta.net/tmp/st31000_startupnoise.mp3 Sometime I've got this error when one of my SATA controllers try to read again the drive: TDRERR F 46 S 50 TDRERR F 46 S 50 TDRERR F 46 S 50 TDRERR F 46 S 50 F3 T> F3 T> F3 T> F3 T>/1 F3 1>N1 F3 1>/T F3 T>i4,1,22 F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewr ite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 0000002C, ErrCode 431 10081, Elapsed Time 0 mins 30 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 30 secs And turning off/on makes no difference. Any tips that I could doing wrong, or any other tip on what can be happening?-. Best regards in advance.
  2. I have the same issue with a barracuda st3500418AS , SOLVED with only a SMART reset: Do your homework and get a serial terminal. CTRL+z F3 3>Z F3 3>/1 F3 1>N1 F3 1>/T F3 T>i4,1,22 Wait, and turn off, 10s and turn on. And now you can read until the read error without having a "disconnection" it just gives a read error, so you can skip a file an continue, it will not repair your drive but at least will allow you to fetch some data.
