Seagate 1.5TB Firmware Update Released

Earlier this month, Seagate gave word that they would be working on a firmware update to fix the issues found with their large capacity 1.5TB drives.  Well now that update is here.

Seagate 1.5TB Customers,

Some Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB hard drives may show uncharacteristic operation when used with Mac and Linux operating systems in multi-drive configurations. Users may experiences pauses in video streaming applications or a dropped drive from RAID arrays. Customers seeing these symptoms should contact Seagate Technical Support directly by phone or by email for a firmware upgrade.

In order to assure the proper application of the new firmware, please communicate/have ready a description of the issues you’re seeing when you contact Seagate Technical Support. Please include the following disk drive information:

*model number (see here for help determining the model number)
*serial number (see here for help determining the serial number)
*current firmware revision (Seatools for DOS can tell you, and it should also be listed on the drive label)

Also, please describe
*your system
*your operating system, and
*the application in use when the issue arose.

You will receive a prompt response with appropriate instructions.

It seems like a shame that they require you to contact tech support in order to get your hands on this update and have not simply put up a download and detailed instruction page, but at least the issue has been addressed.

Hi, just want to know if you could cut acrylic with this machine? I have a Hardwareluxx dual DDC top (for old DDC-2s) that have the small protrusion on the suction side inside the chamber to keep the impeller aligned which will not fit the smaller diameter impellers of the 3.2, any chance to machine off the protrusion?

It would cut straight through it mate, as in the whole block.

ah..then the top is not useable :(

No, it would most certainly leak :p

Hey, read through most of this but cant really find a quote for somthing like I want.

Im hoping to get a Lian-Li PC-A07B in a month or 2, and while they sell an optional window for it im not too keen on it, would prefer somthing smaller really. It would just be a window about a ft square towards the back of the case (away from all the hard drives etc) so pretty simple. Would also want some acrylic covering it. Any rough idea on how much it would cost?

Like I said, Im not yet sure if this is what I'll do, may end up with a different case, just trying to figure out where my money will be best spent :)

Tom if you're still about could you send me an email at *edit* as I cant find your contact details, and while I've read through alot of the posts here, bringing up old posts just to say how much I like them (in turn gettin my post-count up to PM level) seems wrong! :)

Got a few questions and would love an estimation on a window design (actually I'm wanting to find out from someone with the experience you have if it would even be possible to cut it).

how much would it cost to have side window cut on the Coolermaster haf 932, bascally cutting the side vent and the windows above it.

cost of simple square cut and maybe having the same chris cross design as the above window?

also how long would it take to do the job please.

thank you
