leon Posted May 27, 2009 Share Posted May 27, 2009 (edited) Hi CarterInCanada.Your site is good, helped me a lot.I think most people have problems because they do not exacty follow the procedure.You must realise that a computer cannot think or guess what you want from it.It's build from usual electronic components, like all other pieces of electronic equipment.So you need some experience with other electronics especially to connect the TTL adapter.You must understand what you are doing.I must say after all this that I will probably never buy a Seagate drive again.This is not only because of this case, but also from other experience.I had already one another seagate drive and after some time it began to make some strange noises.Smart indicated it was short of failing.I use it as backup drive now.Then I've got a Maxtor drive wich is working flowlesly until now.So with this good experience I purchased also my next Maxtor drive, but at this time Maxtor was already sold to seegate and it was in reality a Seagate drive.And it was again not good.This is already my second bad drive and it's again Seagate.Next time I will try Western Digital.
