U Series 9
160 GB / PATA
Seagate Model ST3160022ACE
Firmware: 9.51

I was imaging the drive with the Atola and it stopped in the middle of the process. The drive was hot, so I think it may have went into safe mode.

Can the Atola remove a Seagate drive from safe mode. If so could you please explain safe mode a little and let me know the process or what other option there might be.

This particular board stopped working and I was not able to get into the terminal window in Atola because it stopped recognizing the drive.

I connected a working drive to the Atola and opened up the terminal window. The Atola documentation does not list all possible commands. If the commands that work with the Atola are available, could someone please post them.

I tried some of the commands that others have listed and they work. I scanned through and conducted key word searches on the site, but was not able to locate a complete command list.

CTRL+E
CTRL+L
CTRL+U
CTRL+Z

The termoinal commands are drive specific and not Atola specific.
Atola just acts as the adaptor to connect your drive to your PC like a RS-232 adaptor. The commands that you will send than have to be understood by the drive, not by the Atola.
Can you past the log that you get from the drive here ?

Hello,

You should not have any problem connecting the bad hard drive to the Atola Insight's terminal. You do not need any other drive. If you experience any issue, please let me know what it is.

Thanks

This particular drive would not identify with Atola. I determined the Head was bad, so I replaced the head. It worked for about an hour and then the head stopped reading again. The platter appears to be slightly warped, so I am not going to mess with it any longer. I do not want to keep damaging heads.

I am still learning the codes for different drives and honestly don't even know how to properly get a log, so that I could post it. This is why I was asking for a list of codes for different drives. I would like to be able to post the results and get help, but no one seems to want to share the commands.

Thanks for the help I did get. I will keep trying.

Just plug the drive with the terminal windows already opened (first connect and open terminal and only then you connect the power to the drive). You should see a initialization "log" in the terminal window, that is what people usually post.

Also search this forum. The complete list of commands for some drives (like 7200.11) have already been posted many times.

This does not mean you cannot use the terminal :)
Simply select the hard drive (even though it does not identify); the Insight will start and allow you to run the terminal. The hard drive does not have to be even powered on.

I realize that I am probably too late, but hope this will help other people in similar situation.
