The Solution for Seagate 7200.11 HDDs

Recommended Posts

MY DRIVE after After C>Q

gives:

Led 000000CE FAddr 0028E24b

and after Ctrl+z

LED 000000CE FAdr00280569

No command no spin down

Is it dead?

If i buy another one the same and put the new pcb on?

Your hdd and PCB are good.

LED CE error is because you do Ctrl+z very quick.

You power on the PCB and wait 20 seconds, after this, you put Ctrl+z, /1, etc

You can try it any some times. Normally this procedure works.

Have you used papers over contacts?

I think that this method can flex the board or the connectors.

I did it with the board unscrew and is not that complicated. All you have to be is a little careful.

Error 1009 DETSEC 00006008

It is a read and write problem. You can't access to aluminium hard disc.

Check all your contacts (one by one), you have problems if you have moved them.

SpinDown with Z command and you screw the board.

U command and check if motor works.

I also upgraded my firmware just to be safe that it doesn't happen again.

I did this fix about 2 weeks ago on a 500gb maxtor and the problem happen again!!. :realmad:

will the fix work again? :}

Yes, the fix will work again, but Seagate has changed the commands.

You can see the commands:

Ctrl+z

F3 T>/C

F3 C>Q

List all commands.

The m command finish with a comma.

I read the following pdf

It says that the disk can unlocked with some command from hyperterminal.It does not say to unplug the PCB. Do you think this will work as described?

http://www.tdubel.com/artikkelit/tiedostot...ial_english.pdf.

This pdf is for unlock xbox harddisks, old hard disks.

The Seagate 7200.11 hard disks have BSY and LBO0 problems, the procedure is different.

Well, I'm stuck. Didn't advance an inch. I read pretty much everything in this topic and I don't know what is wrong. I connected the adapter to the PCB (with or without ground), connected the 3.3V cable from adapter to the red wire from power supply, tried with PCB completely or partial removed etc. but when I open Hyper Terminal and execute CTRL+z I don't see anything. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I have a 1TB drive with all my personal info on it (4 partitions) and I don't want to send it to Seagate.

Royally Peed Off....

I have followed this topic from the outset... before the "solution" was posted, in fact. A brief search into the problem seemed to put it squarely in the: 0 LBA error problem area.

1. It seemed simple enough, so I purchased a 'RS232 to TTL adapter'(£8) and a prolific USB-2-COM Cable(£11) from ebay (My machine has no COM Ports). Following the directions given I could not achieve any kind of connection. I posted my wiring diagram, and was assured that I'd set it up ok. Maybe the RS232 to TTL adapter/Prolific COM Port was faulty?

2. After testing the Prolific USB-2-Com port cable and getting no result from the RX/TX crossover I made, I decided to go down the 'easier' route of using a CA-42 Nokia Data Cable.

3. I purchased the CA-42 Nokia cable from ebay. Price: £6 inc. Postage. Result: Nothing, same total lack of response as in 1.

4. I was informed that maybe the drivers for the nokia cable purchased on ebay were incorrect( it might be a cheap, 'knock'off') - So, I bit the bullet, went to the local nokia store and bought a 'genuine' nokia cable(£33.60). Result: Nothing, same total lack of response as in 1 & 3

So, having paid out about £60 so far in bits and pieces - spent at least 7 solid hours trying to connect to the b*stard drive I am now in the same position as when I started... baffled, peed off and frustrated.

Can anyone - and I mean anyone - suggest a simple, quick and easy method of connecting to my drive?

[PS. If anyone living in the UK - Surrey, Sussex area - as managed follow this, can you lend a hand?]
