Ok I successfully flash my ST3500320AS to the SD1A firmware. Hopefully it will work fine until the end of it's natural life cycle.

Was it a drive with the busy or LB0 issue?

if its any help, one of my drives has the busy fault. it is not detected by the bios and when i ran the firmware upgrade it was still unable to detect the drive and hence could not apply the firmware upgrade.

ive decided to try fix this fault myself using gradius2's method. parts are ordered, just awaiting their arrival!!

Now please tell me, how segate finds a solution in 6 days, when they weren't able to fix the problem in the year before.

Seagate is cutting 2950 jobs and executives salaries down to 25% too.

They could just offer a "special bonus" to those who really knows (a firmware is always writing in assembly) to fix the HDD stuff. This is why they could fixed once for all so fast.

The only difference is .LOD files are cryptographed, since they have HDDs on consoles like Xbox 360, if they just didn't do that, it would be very easy to defect 360's HDDs protections to accept ANY HDD, and ANY size. Plus, it could run games from HDD without any problem.

However they still needs to release more firmwares, specially for those:

ST31500341AS

ST31000333AS

ST3640323AS

ST3640623AS

ST3320613AS

ST3320813AS

ST3160813AS

They says CC or LC firmwares aren't affected, but this is untrue, I already saw more than 10 complains with CC's firmwares, and 1 with LC.

Do you know these guys? It's not unknown for hackers to post "free" Apps in order to hack your PC. The forums look pretty empty to me...

I use HDDScan (for other purpose, on other drive) for several months and seen no problems.

The new firmware has been pulled AGAIN!

Actually no, at least MooseDT-SD1A-3D4D-16-32MB.ISO are the very same (I compared).

Well that's just strange as hell. I went three different paths to arrive at the link above and the page from the 19th was up that said it was in validation. I saw it right before I posted. Now the page is back to normal with the new firmware again. Weird... :wacko:

So do we know that CC1H and newer (CC1J) are good?

CC1J seems fine, not sure about CC1H.
