Default Re: Seagate Barracuda 1TB Drives Biting The Dust


If it were not for bad luck, we would have no luck at all. We decided to follow Seagate's instructions and updated several of our other Barracuda 7200.11 drives today that were identified to have suspect firmware with the revised SD1A firmware. Our ST3500320AS (500GB) and ST3640330AS (640GB) drives are bricked now. It appears this is a widespread problem, once again, and Seagate has pulled this firmware. We do not have a response from Seagate yet, but how in world they let this one get by qualification testing is beyond us. At this time, do not flash your drives if you have the SD1A firmware.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
