Probleme mit einer 3 TB Barracuda Festplatte von Seagate

Auch ich habe mitbekommen, dass diese Platte ab und zu sehr seltsame Geräusche von sich gibt, die sind nicht allzu schön anhören. Nach dem Update der Plattenfirmware war das Geräusch weg.

 If the firmware upgrade installation instructions are not followed properly, the firmware upgrade could be data destructive and/or render your hard drive inoperable. As Seagate does not warrant the data on your drive, in addition to regular back-ups, your data should be backed up, if possible, before upgrading the drive firmware. Additional information on backing up the contents of your drive can be found at the How To Use section of our website. Though this firmware upgrade to your product is a change to the product, the terms and conditions of your Seagate warranty for the product will remain effective to its normal expiration. For other warranties on your product, please consult the warranty documentation provided by your supplier.

The firmware update utility runs within Windows. Download and run the CC4H firmware update utility here. The firmware tool will determine which version (CC4H) is correct for your drive. See Document ID: 210091 for instructions on updating your firmware in Windows using this .exe file.

For non-Windows systems with Intel compatible processors we also offer a bootable CD ISO image, which will create a bootable CD.
For instructions on updating your firmware using the bootable CD ISO image, please see the bootable CD firmware update procedure.
