Question about Hard Drives

1 Answer

Firmware version I?m having trouble trying to recover information from my Seagate Momentus ST910021AS. It got broken, perhaps the servomechanism reader, and the company that is doing the recovery told us that is necessary to get another HD exactly the same, even with the identical firmware version (8.04). Is it completely necessary? Can I just find the broken component? Where can I find the Hard disk (even used or refurbish)?

Which operating system ?

Every Seagate drive requires a few firmware updates during its lifetime.

Seagate firmware must be up-to-date to ensure that the product will run reliably.

Changing the firmware on a Seagate product to a more updated version will improve the product's performance.

Check the Seagate website often for any update available for your drive.

The firmware can be changed with just a few clicks of your mouse on the Seagate Web page.

Click the "Start" button on the bottom-left corner of the screen.

In the window that pops up, click " My computer " or just "Computer."

Another window will show up with an icon for your hard drive.

Right-click the hard drive icon and press the "Properties" option.

This will tell you what model your hard drive is.

For example, your hard drive might be ST31500341AS.

Open your Web browser. Type in and press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Wait for the webpage to load.

Enter the word "Firmware" and your model number in the search box on the upper right hand corner of the webpage and press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Using the example from Step 1, type in "Firmware ST31500341AS".

Click on the first link that is returned in the search results.

Locate the firmware update. Double-click the update.

Press the "Download Firmware Update Utility" link to start downloading.

Click yes on any pop-up boxes that you may see.

Open the new firmware file by double clicking the file that you downloaded in Complete the installation by accepting all of the default questions that are asked during the installation process.

Hope this helps

Internal hard drives should only be opened in a clean room. If I understand you correctly this drive is bound to fail. Suggestion: Start moving files onto other space.
