Hello, I got a new MRT tool and I am still learning and training on some of my old drives.

Imaging drives was quite easy to get and I was able to recover all of them except one. This one don't identify itself. So I was first time opening the Seagate-Tools and try to read some Informations...

Till now I found out:
1) When I wait till the drive become ready (DRD-Light is green) then the drive don't identify and he dont show a serial-number, firmware-version or even the capacity.
2) When I start the F3-Tool directly after powering on the drive it identifies with S/N, Firmware-Version and Capacity correct.

The initial Scan (ATA mode) results with the following:

Code:
Identifying device...
Device identification error!

Getting detailed firmware version...
Failed to get firmware version!

Physical sector size : .............................Failed to get

physical sector size of service area : .............Failed to get

I also can't get the terminal-connection running - not by selecting Terminal-Mode immideatly and not by switching after the scan to terminal mode. The only thing which I can access at the Moment is the ROM.

It's a Seagate 7200.11 drive with 250GB (ST3250310NS) with Firmware SN04.

What I could do form there on?
Flash a new firmware with the ISO from Seagate?
Fix the firmware in some way with one of the MRT-Options?
Is maybe something with the PCB wrong? (I checked it under a 10x microscope for burnmarks, bad connections of SMDs and other visible damages)

I was also googeling and searching here but only thing I found was:

Quote:
Damn UDMA not always works on NS
It is working now, i did it manually.


... What exact does that mean?

Nothing - no error, no F3 > prompt. It just stay complete empty...

When I try to use the ASCII terminal mode to read something I get an "Serial port error..." in the Log-tab.
