Last year it was discovered that many Seagate drives were imploding on themselves, bad drives that would brick and lose files. This included the following drives:

Barracuda ES.2 SATA
  • ST31000340NS, Part # 9CA158-301, 302, 303, 501, 502, 503 - fw SN06
  • ST31000340NS, Part # 9CA158-510, 511, 512 - fw SN16
  • ST3750330NS, Part # 9CA156-301, 302, 303, 501, 502, 503 - fw SN06
  • ST3750330NS, Part # 9CA156-510, 511, 512 - fw SN16
  • ST3500320NS, Part # 9CA154-301, 302, 303, 501, 502, 503 - fw SN06
  • ST3500320NS, Part # 9CA154-510, 511, 512 - fw SN16
  • ST3250310NS, Part # 9CA152-301, 302, 303, 501, 502, 503 - fw SN06

More information and new firmware downloads are available at http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/cr...p?DocId=207963

The firmware is supposed to fix the drive's problem.
