neckilljo Posted February 10, 2009 Share Posted February 10, 2009 (edited) I don't understand why you guys are shelling out extra money for the serial to TTL converters, battery packs, and whatnots. the CA-42 cable works like a charm, cost less than 6.00 with shipping, and eliminates so much guesswork. i posted the ebay seller i used on the previous page, so you know where to get one that works for sure.36 pages deep and it still sounds so complicated - when really it is not once you know what needs to be done.This was my choice... I'm still waiting for my CA-42 arrive...I have one ST3500320AS - SD15 that:1 - Bought on july/082 - Started to cause a lot of bsods since november/083 - Caused IO error on my last usable windows session (4 days ago)4 - After one last BSOD, started to show 0MB on bios setup (several tests on hiren's-boot-cd hdd tools)5 - Got updated to SD1A via cd-r, still 0MB6 - Got downgraded to AD14 via floppy, still 0MB7 - Got updated to SD1A via cd-r, still 0MB8 - Got downgraded to AD14 via floppy, still 0MB9 - Got updated to SD1A via cd-r, still 0MBand stuff like that several times...My only concern is all the data inside it...If I get data back, I'll back it up in several blank dvds and sell this "500G floppydisk" to the first " " that I can.As I'm waiting for my cable to arrive, I wonder: Did I mess the data by flashing the firmware that many times ?
