    Seagate Firmware

    Has anyone applied the new Seagate firmware update successfully? Several publications state that it can trash your drive.

    Many thanks,

    Re: Seagate Firmware


    Although i don't use Seagate HDD, i know something about firmawares.

    Firmware can be applied to MP4 players, internet modems( Access points) and e.t.c

    Yes, firmware can make your device (whatever that be) to go dead.

    So playing with firmware is not advisable.

    But in this case, firmware upgrade is recommended from company itself.
