Bill Farrow fixed the Seagate 7200.11 hard drive firmware BSY bug with the Bus Pirate:
I quickly diagnosed the problem down to a dead HDD. A quick google search later and I discover that I have been hit by the well known Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 BSY bug. Too many power cycles on the drive and it stops working.
Using the following DIY guide, I was able to recover the disk drive by connecting to the diagnostic serial port on the drive using my Bus Pirate.
Get an assembled Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors.
