The Solution for Seagate 7200.11 HDDs

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the response

I have a bit of paper blocking the motor contacts, but the problem is that the hard drive powers up, and then powers Down before I have a chance to run the commands.

Make sense?

Best, J

Yes and no. :w00t:

The "original" guide is about having the PCB completely detached from the hard disk.

Then there are people that had success with a slip of paper under the head contacts and some that had success with it under the motor contacts.

Try with the PCB completely detached first (only to see if you can get to the F3> prompt this way).

Can you confirm that it is a 7200.11 (AND NOT an ES2 drive)?

Elapsed Time 0.155 msecs
And if I give the command

Check the contacts you are insulating, did you try with the motor or head contacts?

Whichever you used, try with the other set.

Redo from start the procedure.

Hello,

I just registered to say a big thanks to all the contributors of this thread. I managed to recover 700 GB I thought lost forever !

I used the method described by 93360 here :

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/128807-the-solution-for-seagate-720011-hdds/page-117#entry926992

thus, instead of a cable I used a USB to TTL Converter similar (but cheaper) than this one :

http://www.amazon.com/USB-Converter-Module-Built-CP2102/dp/B008RF73CS

which has the advantage of not needing an external powering.and, for me, being simpler to implement.

Mistakes I did :

- forgot to connect GRND to GRND

- inverted TX and RTX

dispite this I finally saw the magic "F3 T>" and everything went smoothly.

:w00t:

thanks again !

If it is seen in BIOS, AND NOT seen as 0 in size, THEN it does NOT belong anymore to this thread.

In some cases there is a need to fix the partitioning (and in some of these this is possible), but it is not connected with the unbricking.

You should start a NEW thread detailing the issue (never seen/heard of a "CRC error" BTW).

Here is an example similar one:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/145574-seagate-750gb-one-partition-is-raw-after-bsy-fix/

to give you an idea of the procedure.

Hello everyone


using this cable:

Nokia CA-42 DKU-5 USB Cable 3100 5100 6100 6800 7200



Windows 7 32bit


loopback works, watched and followed the complete guide:

however, if i put the business card in, ctrl + z didnt respond, but it did say connected, so i completed the whole procedure without the business card, last lines were:


F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 Enter

Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 0000

User Partition Format 3% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 0002F79B, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 30 secs

User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 30 secs Zone re-format was skipped.

F3 T>/2

F3 2>Z

Spin Down Complete

Elapsed Time 3.038 msecs

Turn off power from HDD, shutdown your comp.


so i connected the hdd back, but everything was the same for some reason, as i went into my computer, the hdd didnt appear, and in disk management it appeared like this:

20140119_042102aasdas_zps7f23a164.jpg


so i try right clicking on the hdd in disk management > assing letter, say g for example, enter, and it halts disk management, left it for hours and it wouldnt resume, sometimes it comes up in my computer as "Local Disk",


i reboot pc, try running "mini tool power data recovery" the real hdd name comes up "3 documents" but when i click on browse, halts again


hope someone can help me out

If it was actually "the same as before" it was NOT either BSY or LBA0.

Check in the BIOS ( NOT in the booted Windows).

Is it seen as having zero capacity? If no see below, if yes it means that the de-bricking was not successful and you shoudl try again.

Is it detected? If yes then your procedure worked and the disk is not anymore belongng to this thread, if it is not detected it means that the de-bricking was not successful and you shoudl try again.

If the disk is NOT LBA0 and NOT BSY, then:

hope someone can help me out

Read (attentively) the post just before yours.

Start a NEW thread, you need to recover the partitoning/volume(s).

Hello guys,

I have a HDD seagate 7200.11 that is bricked but no wired sound is coming from the drive.

I can't manage to find what is the error, i.e if it is a BSY or 0 LBA or anything else.

My drive appears in the BIOS but I don't see the type of error. The drive is listed with the right size but I can't access it neither in windows nor in linux. Seatools sees the drive but the short test doesn't succeed but the SMART yes.

Do you know a way to identify clearly the error?

Thks
