Solutions for Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 HDD Common Errors(Part II)
1. Fixing Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 HDD 0 LBA error:
Note: All commands are case sensitive!
To correct 0 LBA error, you’ll need to do a quick format in order to regenerate the partition, just with m0,2,2 and the rest can be left blank by putting only commas or filling out with zeros. At the end you need to use a “ValidKey” code, or 22.
Attention: The commands must be used 100% equal as showed here, wrong cmds could lead to data loss or HD loss! Double or triple check the cmd before to press enter!
So we’ll have to enter:
F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter)
For reference: F3 T>m does:
Level T ‘m’: Rev 0001.0000, Flash, FormatPartition, m[Partition],[FormatOpts],[DefectListOpts],[MaxWrRetryCnt],[MaxRdRetryCnt],[MaxEccTLevel],[MaxCertif
Now wait 15~30 seconds until something like this appears (it will vary a bit):
Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 00, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 0000 User Partition Format 5% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00008DED, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs
ONLY after the message like above you can turn off everything.
