    Exclamation Warning to ALL SEAGATE Hard Drive Users (Firmware Bug Bricks Drives on Reboot)

    I just had my 3 month old seagate barracuda 7200.11 brick. Bios won't recognize the drive on reboot and that led me to much research and finally found there is a massive problem with many drives manufactured before Decemeber 2008.

    Seagate fixes 7200.11 drives--except when it doesn't | Crave - CNET

    Seagate offers fix, free data recovery for bricked Barracudas - The Tech Report

    "Seagate recommends that users with 1.5TB, 750GB, 640GB, 500GB, 320GB, and 160GB Barracuda 7200.11 drives, along with some Maxtor and ES.2 models, all install the firmware update."

    But many users have already been hit mind you...

    Why I am not surprised with this post? Used two ST3250410AS in Raid0 and got one HD fail a week until changed to Samsung, two months ago. These cured all my HD problems.
    The strange thing is that the ones I have are 7200.10 series with firmware 3.AAC
    Anyway, never more Seagate drives in my place. Still have these two bricks around, if anyone is interested in a expensive paper weight...
