What brand HDD is it?
It's a Samsung HM500JI. Not sure which tool would be the right one, it seems Seagate has got something to do with Samsung hard drives. The model does not appear on this site: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=42990&modelname=SV0411N
. Also, the download link for HUTIL points to a sales page on Seagate (wtf?). Guess I'll try the Seatools then.
Update: SeaTools does not list the drive after scanning for supported drives. Guess it's the wrong tool then.
