  3. Do you know these guys? It's not unknown for hackers to post "free" Apps in order to hack your PC. The forums look pretty empty to me...
  4. I'd think that HDD Tune can't read this info from the disk drive directly. I think what it does is read the DRive model number and lookup in a local database the other drive charactertistics and display them to the user. Thus HDD Tune needs to have it's database updated with the newer drive info by the developers of HDD Tune. This includes info such as ATA/ATAPI-????? and the UDMA info. So in the case of my ST31000333AS having 32mb of cache, HDD tune would modify the DBMS to say lookup the drive model and display that 32mb info to the user. Isn't that issue what this article describes? http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/d...wnloads/cuda-fw

If he is who he says he is it doesn't sound like we'll be getting a firmware this week to unbrick the drives that were rendered inoperable by the SD1A update. Supposedly they are being extra cautious with the next release and it may be next week before we see it. That's fine by me, but I would REALLY at least like SD15 to be made available so I can flash back to a working firmware to get the one drive back online that AD14 won't work with. Good spot KLA1973! Here is the specific comment: http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=1098793&cid=26542735 It's the first very sensible explanation I have seen and it looks very real. If this is real and true I extend my congratulations to maxtorman for speaking up and for having the balls to post that. I hope he doesn't get into trouble as he is the only one who has faced us directly and given as a reasonable explanation. He also not treating us like stupid people that cannot understand technical issues. It's very sad that Seagate as a company can not take the same avenue and be direct and clear with us on what's going on here. I also suggest you read his other comments in Slashdot as they are very informative: http://slashdot.org/~maxtorman
  6. Seagate has now "silently" updated the KB 207931: http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/self...sp?DocId=207931 "...manufactured through December 2008." instead of "...manufactured in December 2008." We knew that already!

  8. Users of the 500 GB drive be aware of possible RAID issues after the new FW update: http://forums.seagate.com/stx/board/messag...message.id=5654
  9. They have anounced a new firmware for the 1.5 TB as well, but it hasn't been released yet. See http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/self...sp?DocId=207957
  10. CST is Central Standard Time, which is GMT -0600. So that means the new ISO file was updated at 9:15PM GMT (UTC).
  11. Check this thread: http://forums.seagate.com/stx/board/messag...e.id=5328#M5328 People had success using the earlier EXE and the new FW to update their drives.
  12. It's in a hidden part, but if you try booting with it you will get the FW update program loaded automatically. Give it a try and you will see. Don't expect the FW update to work though as no one has been able to update their drives so far.
  13. Good you got it "working", well more like booting, not working really. I wish I could have the Engineer that coded that FW in front of me, I will tell him a few things about QA and customer service! Hundreds of users have tried already and they are just wasting our time, it seriously looks like a joke, a very bad joke.
  14. It sounds like you have some FreeDOS issues. Try booting with the same CD in another PC or a laptop. If it doesn't work try burning the CD a lower speeds. If it works then your PC might not be able to boot with FreeDOS. Try changing some BIOS setting, like disabling all periphetrals etc.
  15. Check this post: http://forums.seagate.com/stx/board/messag...e.id=5287#M5287 Basically everyone is trying to apply the FW to the 1 TB drives and it's failing. How dumb are these guys? They can't even check that the FW works before releasing it? Seagate sucks!!!
