Seagate firmware fix for bricked HDDs remains an issue
Seagate continues to mess up. Several of the firm's Barracuda 7200.11 hard drives were having trouble with a firmware bug, last week we reported that the hard drive maker had released a firmware update to resolve this issue but the fix has been taken offline for validation.
Apparantly, the SD1A firmware update did more bad than good as many users are reporting that the update broke their hard drive. It is said that the patch worked on 1TB ST31000340AS and 750GB ST3750330AS Barracuda drives but caused read errors on 500GB ST3500320AS drives.
Seagate assures users that their data isn't lost, and says they're working on a new update that should resolve all problems with the Barracuda 7200.11 series.
What a retarded mess that is.
