If the disk is seen in BIOS with it's real size, and it is seen in disk manager as "uninitialized disk" your next step would be to attempt making a "dd-like" or "forensic sound" image. You will need a larger HD formatted in NTFS to host the image, or a same size or bigger to make a clone. And the use of ddrescue (under Linux - recommended) or datarescuedd (or similar porgrams) under Windows. Mind you it is entirely possible that the disk is now recognized in BIOS but that you won't be anyway able to access the physical sectors. Once you will have made this image (or clone) start a new thread and we will see how to recover data (if possible), or if you have difficulties in finding or using the tool, as well start a new thread, the disk drive is now "unbricked" and it does not belong here anymore. The message "No Phy: Staggered Spin bypass" should have no relevance. jaclaz Succeeded ! Thank You very much for your help! I saved the data using the GetDataBack program, with complete success. I summarize the case (0 LBA error), the following steps resolved: 1., Fixing 0 LBA error: Hyperterminal: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 2., Reset the drive to deafult values Hyperterminal: F3 T>/2 F3 2>Z F3 2>U F3 2>/ F3 T>F,,22 3., Data Rescue GetDataBack (Classic) using. Thanks again! PePeT
This is the part that "sounds" very different from previous experience. At first sight, it seems like *something* *somehow* changed the drive map, putting a "Cap" on it. You can *try* (of course with NO guarantees whatsoever) to reset the drive to deafult values with a F,,22 , but really cannot say if it can be of any use. Read around here: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/?p=985252 AND given link: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/page-19#entry832570 @Mrich0908 Nice to know , but of course *anything* that can send/receive TTL (at the right "low" TLL level) would do, usually people "playing" with Arduino's also have one or more suitable USB to TTL or Serial to TTL converters, and - more than that - they usually know how to interface things successfully, so I am not surprised that it wasn't mentioned before as posters on this thread - usually - post here looking for help/support as they are not familiar with the matter, while most people knowing where their towel is will simply run the commands an unbrick the drive, without ever posting about their experience. Thanks for sharing it . jaclaz Thank you for help! I tried command, according to description. I received the following response from the Hyperterminal: Rst 0x20M ASCII Diag mode F3 T>/2 F3 2>Z LED:000000CE FAddr:0025DF1F Rst 0x20M ASCII Diag mode F3 T>/2 F3 2>Z Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.131 msecs F3 2>U Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 8.900 secs F3 2>/ F3 T>F,,22 Drive Configuration restored to defaults.

According to the description I could repair a "BSY" faulty HDD, what I would like to thank you to members of the forum. Now a Seagate HDD(ST31000333AS) puzzles me which have a "0 LBA" error. According to the description I tried to repair but it was no succes. (PC recognized the type of the HDD, but in the BIOS I only see 0 Mb, in windows: Not initalized) Thank you in advace for your help!
