Maxtor Drive Suddenly Quit Working
The bios doesn't see it anymore. It makes a somewhat of a clicking sound. It has valuable data I would like to get out of it. I see there is a firmware update available but don't know how to flash it since bios doesn't see drive.

My drive is affected by a known issue that made the news last year, i had no idea my drive was part of it....but how do you know 100% if the reason your drive just all of a sudden dropped off your bios is fixable by this firmware update? what other symptons are there to these problems?
i'm sending the drive in to Seagate's i365 service but would like to know if there is any more info available or if i'm at the mercy of i365 which quoted me 700 to 2000 if the drive isn't fixable by update.
has anyone here unbricked a drive that i365 said firmware couldn't fix?
