Thanks for the response Jaclaz I fired up the drive and actually it is 11 clicks so it doesn't look good. I've already purchased the tool and its on its way, I will try but not expecting result to be favorable.
Hi - I have a BARRACUDA 7200.11 ST31500341AS 9JU138-302 with CC1H firmware that I think has the BSY issue (not showing up in BIOS). Drive has been running 24/7 for the past 4.5 years as an FTPserver at work without any issues until yesterday. Now, when first powered on it makes about 8-10 slow quiet tick tick noises and nothing. I've tried the drive in a USB caddy and my laptop wouldn't recongise it. When I enter my serial number on seagate.com it says I'm running the latest and indicates that this drive/firmware is not affected. But when I look at this the model number has update to SD1B http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/207957en?language=en_US Is my drive affected by the BSY bug? is it worth buying or is the drive just stuffed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/FT232BM-BL-Seagate-Barracuda-7200-11-Firmware-Fix-tool-complete-USB-powered-/280748167812?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415de51284 I actually had a 1TB fail years ago with the BSY issue and found somebody local to me who lent me there cable and I was able to fix and then update firmware and that HDD is still running strong today.. Thanks
