  1. Dear friends, my HardDrive (Seagate ST3500320AS - 7200.11 - 500 GB - 3,5'' FW SD81 - Purchase Date : 11. Feb. 2009) had the BSY Error and is unbricked now. Sorry for this question, but I am very confused: Will the FW-Update SDA1 prevent the HDD from further Errors or not ? I see some messages in here that makes me think about. Should I do the Update or not ??? Greetings JDz
