What can be done in this case?
No DR needed, only drive repair.

1) fix STUFF 2) check and eventually fix firmware-must at least start decently 3) selfscan. In this order.

I did it. The answer was:

Unknown type 03

Re: Seagate Momentus 5400.3 problem

In that case you have to write the first 4 sectors of vendor track.....of course from an identical model.

Get an identical model and copy vendor track, first 4 blocks are sufficient.

STUFF does change, but
" Not configured-0 "
message still remains.
What does it mean? What is not configured?

You mean that the type for this drive should be Type=39 and not Type=30 ?
And I have to change it by Y command ?

30 is 4 heads which is fine according to application code
you need to fix stuff because it's empty
"Stuff" contains ID information on Seagate drives (like model name and LBA sectors number, so it's important)
Stuff located on vendor track

WD doesn't allow you to send commads using terminal.
Seagate - Ither PC3K Seagate manual or search function of this forum. I've posted the list of terminal commands for Seagate in one of my posts.
