  1. UNBRICKED my two harddiscs! All data is completely fine. I had two working ST3500320AS that got bricked by the SD1A update. I was able to "unbrick" these two drives by downgrading to the public aviable AD14 update. This downgrade doesnt work for all ST3500320AS but for some. If youre drive is similar to this data, you could try the downgrad if you need your data fast. If you have time, I suggest to wait / request the correct/perfect firmware from the seagate support. Here are the data fomr the drives: Purchase firmware: SD15 Pre-flash firmware: SD15 Serial: 9QM09XXX Date: (only got date code) 08235 Produced in: Thailand Site code: KRATSG P/N: 9BX154-303 Purchase firmware: SD15 Pre-flash firmware: SD15 Serial: 9QM0BXXX Date: (only got date code) 08235 Produced in: Thailand Site code: KRATSG P/N: 9BX154-303 The AD14 update is according the readme only for ST3500320AS's -301 and -302 but i risked it and it worked.

  2. Nope, my drives had SD15 as i puchased them. Here is what KLA1973 posted in my thread in the seagate board:
  3. Do anybody of you guys know what to do to recover from a ST3500320AS drive that worked and got killed by the SD1A update? I lost my main and backup drive as the update just updated both drives the same time to death. Some few people could recover from this state by downgrading the drive to AD14 but mostly not. I just wonder if the downgrade to AD14 is a risk (besides that the old bug can occur again) But I really like to get my data back. Thanks in advance BR Robert
  4. Hello, @all who killed theire 500GB ST3500320AS drives by updating to SD1A and who downgraded back to AD14 please lets try to find out why this downgrade sometimes works and sometimes not. If you dont care, please answer as much as possible questions: -does the downgrade brought your data back? -which firmware was on the drive as you purchased it -which firmware was on the drive before you flashed it -which serial number has the drive (if you want XX the last one/two digits) -which date this drive was manufactured -where the drive was manufactured I lost all my data cause the update killed my main and backup hd and I lost all data. I didn't tested the downgrade yet. BR and thanks for help Robert PS: @Mod: Maybe a sticky would be nice.
