I suspect I have the BSY issue. The BIOS does not detect the drive, the motor spins and no unusual noises. The drive is an ST3500320A with firmware SD81 manufactured in China. Checked the Seagate site by serial number and it says the drive is not effected. Anyone seen this on a drive with the SD81 firmware? Thanks, Slacker1989
