Ok so model does matter too just in case someone ask you in the future.
Any ways thanks for helping me.
Oh ok thanks i will try that right now
Edit: Ok i tried it and it gives me the same thing should i just consider it a loss or do you still think...
Sorry for a late response. But do you mean i do it manual as in windows mode? Like they say on this tutorial?...
It gives me a drq error of 0x0802 failed to read sector 16
Hard drive will not initialize it gives me a I/O error
Update: so i used that firmware and i think it bricked my drive because now it reads 0.0GB is there anything i could do to fix this?
Oh ok thank you for your feedback i really appreciate it
I have seen a couple of WD5000BEVT but none match the date or does it really matter?
My HDD is WD5000BEVT-00A0RT0
