8 gb or 0 gb indicates that

1) PCB isn't original or
2) Firmware corruption

most likely..

AFAIK Rom swap isn't necessary at older HDD. 40 GB disk is for museum now.


Do you think that you can do this recovery ?

As the poster doesn't seem to want to pay for services and is seemingly prepared to risk/loose all there might be another option regarding any firmware repairs.

There was a very old hacked bit of software from many years ago called 'MRT Maxtor' and is likely to be floating about. It is so old now I don't think anybody would care if I mention it.

One would need to run it on a 32 bit OS like XP or maybe Win 7 x86 and copy the smport.sys file to the system32 folder. The drive needs to be installed on the secondary ide port.

I think it's this tool :

http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php? ... 955#p12027

China HDD Union "MRT" is a pirated KrogrHDD Maxtor Utility.

It will NOT help you out unless you can somehow figure out what ROM to use or get a copy of it from SA by hotswap.

What do you intend to do with the software exactly ?

If the problem is that ROM on PCB is not the same as ROM on original PCB how do you intend to write the correct ROM to the PCB ?
