PC-3000 HDD. How to solve “No HOST FIS-ReadyStatusFlags” error

One of the most popular problem with Seagate F3 drives is problem with Translator.
In this video we would like to show you how to fix No HOST FIS-ReadyStatusFlags error.
We have a drive that remains in Busy state and not recognize in utility.
First of all we need to determine what a problem exactly.
Let’s open utility forced and switch on the power supply.
Take a look on the terminal report.
As we can see drive have few error messages that allow us to understand a problem:
SIM ERROR 3005 (mean that “format corrupted flag” in on and Translator is not loaded in RAM)
“No HOST FIS-ReadyStatusFlags” (reason message: why translator is not loaded).

Such behavior could be if drive have problem with:
– Translator
– Service area
– Heads issue
– PCB issue

The solution works for non-SMR drives only!

But in this case we know that this is Translator issue (SIM ERROR 3005)
Let’s make a backup of critical Sys Files and try to regenerate translator.
