The Solution for Seagate 7200.11 HDDs

Recommended Posts

Problem solved!!!!

Finally I solved my problem with the prompt after pressing CTRL+Z, connecting the gnd pin of the HD to the others (rs232 converter and power supply).

I do not update the firmware because the wholeseller where I bought the HD will change it (I have a friend who can manage it). I'll demand a 7200.10 hd. I dont want any 7200.11 drive anymore.

Thanks to everybody in this forum who help people like me (with a lot of doubts and new in this forum), and specially to Pichi for his help and interest in my particular case.

Best regards

Saludos

Another question: once I've unlocked my drive and saved all my info, I'll return my drive to the wholeseller for a change. The thing is that it would be interesting to return it blocked...

Is there any way to make the drive fail again, in order to return it blocked?

Thanks

I have a 1.5 TB seagate that I updated from SD17 to SD1A back in December at Seagate's suggestion. That drive is now dead exhibiting similar problems to the BSY error. It spins up, doesn't get overly hot, is not making any noise, and won't post or show up at all. I have over 1.2 TB of data on this drive and would like to recover it. I do have backups of the data in other places, but the drive was part of a WHS data pool and I have no clue what actual data is on the drive.

1. How do I check the drive to see if its experiencing the BSY error?

2. If it is experiencing the BSY error, will the instructions & commands here fix it or do I need to use different commands since it already has the SD1A firmware?

Also, I noticed that the newest firmware is SD1B for the 1.5 TB drive on the firmware download page, but a Seagate technical support team lead told me on Monday that the SD1A that I have on the drive is the latest firmware for that drive.

Yes, I did. I've tried all the possible combination of ways to connect, just couldn't get F3 T> command prompt.

At one point, I was suspecting that the RS232-TTL is not working, so I did the loop back test suggested on

http://sites.google.com/site/seagatefix/

and I was able to see the character that I type. This indicated that the device is working.

Here is the detail of my drive:

Maxtor DiamondMax22 (STM31000340AS)

S/N: 9QJ29MTJ

P/N: 9GT158-325

Firmware: MX15

Date Code: 09153

1. MHDD let you check the drive to see if its experiencing the BSY error.

2. If it is experiencing the BSY error you check the new commands of SD1A firmware.

The m command finish with a comma: m0,2,2,,,,,22,

You can see all commands of your 7200.11 disc with this:

Ctrl+z

Pichi,

Thanks for your help and suggestions. I downloaded MHDD, but couldn't figure out how to use it, so I downloaded Victoria for Windows and followed the tutorial in another thread. The drive would even not show up in Victoria, so I figure the drive is really dead. Seagate is sending me a new drive tomorrow.

You burn the MHDD iso and you reboot the PC.

With this MSDOS program you can test if your hdd has BSY flag.

So, are you suggesting to boot from the MHDD iso?

Don't be discouraged - Try Again... I had to connect the ground cable to the third pin (after The Rx an TX) - get it done and boy I was happy to see my lost data alive and kicking!!

If you get all these crazy characters just reinitiate the Hyperterminal session.

Found also that a low battery (did not use the power supply) and no so good connections are a big source of trouble.

Yes, I did. I've tried all the possible combination of ways to connect, just couldn't get F3 T> command prompt.

At one point, I was suspecting that the RS232-TTL is not working, so I did the loop back test suggested on

http://sites.google.com/site/seagatefix/

and I was able to see the character that I type. This indicated that the device is working.

Here is the detail of my drive:

Maxtor DiamondMax22 (STM31000340AS)

S/N: 9QJ29MTJ

P/N: 9GT158-325

Firmware: MX15

Date Code: 09153

guys, arie07's right, if the loop test works but not with the HDD... i think it means you need to GND the HDD with your device (eg: DKU-5), at least that's what happened in my case.

Safe now to flash firmware? Since the last release of the firmware almost 2 months have passed, I would like to ask you guys if it is now safe to flash the firmware with the latest version. Do you know of problems arising from flashing the drive with the latest firmware? - Lots of thanks to Gradius, Pichi, Fatlip and all that contributed to this topic. I was able to unbrick my Diamondmax 22 500Gb HD and have all my data back.
