SOURCE: seagate st3500320as firmware sd15 not recognize by bios

Hi y'all! I had my 500Gb drive fail just before Easter. After a lot of research on the internet and inquiries to companies for a quote on data-recovery, I decided to give it a shot myself. Fortunately I have more than one 7200.11 SD15 hard-drive and one was still working. Here's how I did: I emptied the functioning drive. I switched the controllers between the drives and connected the good drive with the bad controller to my motherboard. The BIOS found it. There was some stuttering noise going on from the drive, but I had nothing to loose. I had made a CD with the firmware update to SD1A from Seagate. Once I knew that BIOS found the drive, I disconnected all other drives and booted from the CD. The firmware was updated. The drive was still not found by Windows (7 ultimate 64), but I was interested in the data from the other one, so I switched back the controllers between the discs and booted again. The BIOS found my "crashed" drive with the newly updated controller. Started Windows again and... There it was with all the data intact!
At the time of writing this, I still haven't checked if the other drive, that I used to do the fix, is still working, but... it had been emptied before the whole experiment.
So, there is light at the end of the tunnel if your drive disappears due to the firmware error. If it still hasn't failed, I recommend you to update the firmware to SD1A as soon as possible.
Have fun! Lars@floripaweb.net

SOURCE: When trying to restore my

If by "restore" you mean that you are reinstalling Windows onto the disk-drive, to restore Windows to the "as-shipped-from-the-factory" condition, then a failure of that operation can be caused by either of three conditions:

* I/O errors reading files from the CD/DVD disks (due to dust/fingerprints on the bottom of the disks),

* I/O errors writing files to the disk-drive,

* an intermittent problem with the computer's motherboard or RAM, causing "random" failures when using the computer.

So, on another computer, take the CD/DVD disks, and try to copy the entire contents (namely up to 4.7 GB) onto the 'C:' drive, watching for any "I/O errors" during the file-copy operation.
If the file-copy completes successfully, then the copy of the files can be deleted.

If no errors occur, then it's time to suspect that the disk-drive itself is failing.
Buy a new disk-drive, and disconnect the old disk-drive, and connect the new disk-drive,
and restart the "restore" operation. If the "restore" fails on the new disk-drive,
then it's time to suspect that the motherboard has a problem.

SOURCE: I need to upgrade my firmware for my seagrate hard

Hi i have just looked into need to upgrade your firmware please read this
Seagate products are run by firmware. Having the latest firmware can improve performance and or reliability of your product. Seagate recommends applying new firmware to enhance the performance and or reliability of your drive.
Like any software, firmware is improved over time and problems are also fixed. Every drive family has a couple of firmware releases during the life of the product. Please check in regularly to determine if new firmware is available for your drive.

As new firmware becomes available for other products we will make note of it here. At this time, we have firmware available for Barracuda 7200.12, DiamondMax 23, Barracuda LP, Barracuda 7200.11, Barracuda ES.2 (SATA) and DiamondMax 22 drive families.
If newer firmware is available for your drive, it will reflect the improvements we have engineered for the latest manufacturing. Firmware for legacy products will be the final release from manufacturing. Please note that Seagate does not offer details about specific firmware.

Until recently, firmware updates for typical desktop and laptop computers were difficult and somewhat risky. This situation, in part, was based on a lack of friendly firmware download tools and operating system limitations. This situation has improved and Seagate now offers firmware updates as a routine matter for the general support of your Seagate drive.

note.gif If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.
Please use the following links and instructions below to determine if firmware is available for your product. If firmware is available, we recommend that you make a back up before running the actual update and that you read and follow all instructions, cautions and warnings that may be displayed.

Follow these steps to determine if a firmware update is available for your drive:

Cannot detected controller to install firmware


The error you describe is a bios error. No drivers in the os will help.
Maybe you can find a bios update that will support that controller, or maybe not. You may need a different raid controller that is properly supported by your bios.

I have a Vizio Model E420VL and it gets into a state which the audio does not work (from HDMI input #1) and remote control processing in the unit also does not work. I had played around with the side...


hi,

It can be difficult to get things right on the first try. With that truism in mind, Vizio Incorporated includes USB ports on their televisions that you can use to load firmware updates onto the television. Vizio has released firmware updates only for certain television models, and the instructions for installing firmware updates vary slightly by model. To upgrade your television's firmware, you need to download and copy firmware drivers to a USB flash drive and then read and follow Vizio's specific installation instructions for your model.

1. Connect the USB flash drive to your computer


2. Click the "Start" button, and click the "My Computer" icon.
3. Right-click the flash drive, and click "Format" in the menu


4. Select "FAT32" in the drop-down menu, and click the "OK" button. Windows will format your USB flash drive with the FAT32 file system.


5. Open your Web browser, and navigate to the Vizio support Web site at www.vizio.com/support.

6. Click the "Select Your Product" drop-down menu, and select your model of Vizio television from the list. A new page will open that displays available downloads for your television


7. Click the "Firmware Update" link, and save the firmware update file to your computer.

8. Click the "Firmware Instructions" link, and read the instructions specific to your Vizio television model.

9. Right-click the file that you downloaded, click "Rename," and then rename the file to the exact name that is specified in the firmware instructions 10. Right-click the file, and click "Send to" > "E: USB Drive" or whichever drive letter corresponds to your flash drive. The firmware update file is copied to your USB drive 11. Right-click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the right side of the Windows task bar, and eject the device from your computer

12. Disconnect the USB drive, and plug it in to your Vizio TV's USB port.


13. Follow the steps in the firmware instructions to install the firmware update to your television.



Only you can find is the problem with firmware by udating the frimware of your tv. ok

It finishes down loading up dates then e 66 pops up


I'm going to make a few assumptions in my solution, based on the nature of the problem you're having. First, I'm positive you're talking about an Xbox 360 console, but I'm going to infer that it's an older model without the HDMI port. Next, I'm guessing your console has a Toshiba/Samsung drive, which is the most common drive in older units. And finally, because 99% of the time this issue occurs in modified consoles, I'm pretty sure your drive has been flashed with an alternative firmware. Assuming these assumptions are true, you need to flash your drive with the original firmware. Given the nature of this particular topic, I won't go into detail on how to do that, but a couple minutes on Google will tell be more than sufficient to find that information. Once your original firmware has been restored, the update will complete successfully and you can reflash your drive with the modified firmware of choice. The problem occurs because the latest update flashes the drive with Microsoft's new firmware to allow consoles to play games using the new GDX3 media. On Toshiba/Samsung drives, the update checks the drive's firmware and doesn't recognize it as the original firmware, causing the update to fail and report an E66 hardware failure error.

How do i update my Archos 504?


How to install firmware ..?(update)

Step 1. Download the firmware to your computer-->click HERE to download the update file When you download the update file, your browser may warn you that the file 'could be harmful'. This is normal because browsers are not familiar with files that have a .AOS extension and suspect that they could be malicious. These files are not harmful to your computer.

Step 2. Turn on your ARCHOS device and connect it to your computer with the USB cable

Step 3. On the ARCHOS, choose to connect and wait a few seconds for your device to be detected by the computer

Step 4. Copy and paste the downloaded firmware (.AOS file) to the ARCHOS device.
  • Case 1: logo_firm_hdd.jpg Your ARCHOS is detected by your computer as a Hard Drive (E: for example) in Windows® Explorer. Paste the update file directly onto the ARCHOS hard drive icon.
  • Case 2: logo_firm_g4.jpg Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see just two folders Data and Media when you open it. Paste the update file into the folder called Data.
  • Case 3: logo_firm_g4.jpg Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see Internal Hard Drive when you open it. Open this Internal Hard Drive icon and you will see the various ARCHOS folders inside (Video, Music, etc.). Paste the update file into this area but be careful not to paste it into any of the folders there.
Step 5. Disconnect the Device
Unplug the USB cable (for 'Mobile Device' connections) or use the "safe disconnect" green arrow icon (for Hard drive connection) in the system tray before unplugging the USB cable.

Step 6. On your ARCHOS device, click on "Update Firmware"
Click on the "tab" button to show the settings screen. Select the "System" icon and then click on the "Update Firmware" button. For the ARCHOS 104, 202, & 204, go to the settings and open the icon "System" where you can find the Update Firmware button.
