    have you tried turning it upside down? (jah i know you think its fw not heads)

    you realise also swapping boards isn't hunnits guarantee? the serial fix might be better here...

    and where are your backups?
    henceforth don't spin it up any more than neccessary.

    is it ide or sata? can you chuck it in an external enclosure/dock? if you can powercycle it to the (linux) OS you might have better luck than from post handover. (ie, it will populate an addressable block dev) if it does: IMAGE IT IMMEDIATELY.

    i'll have a look in my drawer tomorow.

    Tried many things before Googley search to find these drives came with bad FW that could cause 1 of 2 failures mine has the BSY failure

    Backups are held on a ext network connected drive but are reserved only for the main PC's in the house

    This drive in question is a SATA one, as part of my trial & error stage it's had many cycles on ext connection with different OS's

    The 11s were well known for an issue I forget. ES and regular alike, we had a 50%+ failure rate. His part code is sata.

    Oh so close - I have a 7200.11 but it is a 750GB.
    If I had found a 7200.11 500GB I would have happily given it to you, I have no use for such a tiny drive.
    I have started putting 8TB drives in my NAS boxes, my QNAP 4-bay has 2 x 8TB with 2 empty slots so I can add 2 more.
    Some of my old drives I don't use anymore are 1TB and bigger.
