I'm hoping that someone can help. I have the above drive that came to me in the usual "Busy" state. Applied the usual fix and the drive comes ready with 0 LBA. Normally fix this with partition regeneration command in terminail with no problems, but this one refuses to finish. It hangs for a long long time with no error. Tried the Fix capacity error command in seagate Doc but does the exactly the same (in excess of 7 mins). In Seagate Doc, it will eventually say it's completed, but when you restart, it's the same.
All modules can be read successfully without error as well as CP(ROM) and CP(RAM). The drive spins up healthily, no noises or knocks, and comes ready in about 3 seconds, but stuck with 0 LBA...
Can anyone help....please..
Drive details are:-
f/w:- HP12 (which i'm beginning to think is the culprit)
Module 000C__64000 takes ages to read (in excess of 3 mins) but without error.
