Updating firmware seagate
Seagate today issued a much needed firmware fix that hopefully resolves one of the biggest bungles for in recent memory.
Last week, Seagate released a preventative firmware update for Barracuda 7200.11 drives affected by a faulty firmware which caused the drive to lock up and fail to be detected by the BIOS.
Common problems include no sound, printing malfunction, video / screen problems.
Recently I've grown tired of seeing constant warnings in my S. I am not responsible if this wipes your drives, you should probably have backups first, I am also not responsible for the data that will be lost on the thumbdrive you format to make a bootable firmware updating stick! Seagate recommends using their 'Drive Detect' software, which, of course, is a Windows application.
Recommended: For updating all Seagate drivers, use Driver Assist.Drivers are pieces of software that allow the computer itself to interact with a hardware device.Without drivers, hardware you connect to your computer - i.e. Corrupted or outdated drivers often create file errors, communication problems, or hardware malfunction in Windows®.It determines which drivers are missing, corrupt or obsolete.After the initial scan, Driver Assist matches your device with the latest and most up to date version of your drivers by scanning its 26 million drivers database.
