I looked up my HDD, and checked the firmware, the website told me because of my revision, I won't need a firmware update, and if I try to update it when it comes out, it will brick my drive, haha.

So it's not every drive that is affected apparently...I just got lucky and got the right firmware. I hope. Cross your fingers.

heh, seems like I never post in the right section

Quote:
Seagate's SD1A firmware update, meant to fix problems with its Barracuda 7200.11 models, only managed to make things worsebricking the drives of those who bothered to install it. They've pulled the update pending validation.

Barracuda owners who flashed their disks with the firmware found that after they rebooted, they'd receive a system disk failure error message. Backups, if they were stored on the same drive that was flashed, also became unavailable.

If you have a Barracuda hard drive, best follow this forum thread to keep updated on news from Seagate. Hopefully, the next "fix" they release isn't such a mess.
