I think you are confusing your drive with a Seagate, my friend. You're not going to be able to accomplish anything that way.

AIUI the only functions available via the UART port are reading and writing the flash memory in BOOT ROM mode (via XMODEM), and reading and writing RAM or I/O ports via the Tiny Console. I have written a simple ZOC script to read/write memory via the Tiny Console while "Severence" has written a nice Windows based tool for the same purpose.

Fzakbar is correct and the drive supports ata over terminal. So you can do most of what you can do in terminal as long as you understand the command structures.
