It appeared in WExplorer but the directories only. When I try to open them nothing happens.
I began, in great despair, to google and somewhere I read ĻbrickedĻ and from there on I reach your site.
After reading many pages I am in a really mess and I donīt know what to do.
According with some of you, I noticed that it appeared in the POST correctly with 500 Gb, UDMA 6, etc.
Going to the setup it appeared also with 500 Gb, SATA 2, etc.
I take it off the PC, and tried it in my hand and it seems to me that it spin well, without any noises.
In the site of Seagate it appeared that I have the last firmware update. Of course I donīt update for myself, it is as I bought it.
I need a great help, I suppose. Can you help me?
Your drive is not bricked. Different symptoms and SD1A is immune against the bug.
Give us more details of what exactly the symptoms are. When you try to open folders, does it open and show empty or doesn't it open at all? If you rightclick - properties, does it show the right size?
