I have a Maxtor 40 GB slim model with a problem similar to the MPG s from Fujitsu. Infact I had faced the same problem with many of the Maxtor slim models. The drive gets detected in the CMOS setup and in the POST summary screen the system reports that the "<primary master> hard disk fail". When we use the Power Mac utility from Maxtor, it detectes the drive and says read/ SMARt access failure and gives the error code of UK0E02. The model of the drive is Fireball 3 ATA 133 with P/N 294924-001

Can anybody help?

Regards,

Mathew Varghese

Marcos, your english is even worst than mine :)
About the problem with the Maxtor, the solution is similar to the one with the Fujis. You need to re-write the SA. The problem is how.

Ha-ha!!!

After rewriting SA you will have FULLY dead drive without possibility of repair. By this action you will kill any important for drive's life information: all adaptive modules, tables of translator, defect-lists etc. But problem really is in the Service Area and you will easy repair it with PC3000.

When I said re-write SA I wanted to say only the bad modules, not all the SA of course

bla bla bla....

can someone put here a real fact from a succesfull repair of this model (Maxtor Ares C64K, remember?)..... if not please don't check my english!!!!!

my part now:

the hdd is detected as: Ares C64K,

possible solution:
tool: PC3000v11 updated
put the hdd from jumpers to start in "safe mode" (autospin disable).

start PC3000 util for this drive, load LDRS and RAM file from a good compatible hdd.
if the hdd doesn't stop in head knocking (for this I have no solution) you will be able to read service area. see what is wrong ant try to repair/rewrite (see automatic repair of some module for data recovery).

in most cases the drive will have some area with BBK. check and repair this too.

this is the easiest case, more problem can occur, and here is when help is most needed.........

Best Regards,
format_b.

Carlos : yes, not so easy.

Agreed - many drives enter BSY state.

So, first of all you need tool for repair. For example, you can buy PC-3000, or, if you cannot make it, you can buy Maxtor utility of Sergey Kazansky (nickname - Ruterian, you can find this person easy).

Next step is firmware checking. It is a rule, that in these drives P-List is bad and have soft-bads. Only rewrite it with clean module, after that make translator regeneration, and, I think, you will have your data.
