I was stuck by my Seagate HDD yesterday. Barracuda 7200.11 500GB SATA II HDD Model: ST3500320AS Firmware: SD15 Same as you possibly. It does not show up during BIOS AHCI Drive init. Checking Internet, it is a firmware issue. My Seagate is an OEM version. Seagate provides NO data recovery!!! If yours are Retailer version, Seagate will possibly save you. Call Seagate to recover. I find a data recovery company to get all data back. I am waiting to get my data back hopefully. But It is expensive. If yours has critical data, it is better to find a data recovery company to help. To: fzabkar You seems an Expert of fixing this firmware issue. | Report abuse chrissyqld October 18, 2010 8:01:42 AM what about flashing the drive? how do i do that and will that work? | Report abuse fzabkar October 18, 2010 11:35:56 PM You cannot update the firmware on a drive that is not detected by the BIOS. Your cheapest solution is the well-known DIY fix in my previous post. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Seagate st3500320as> Related ressources: Forumissue with Seagate ST3500320AS ForumSeagate ST3500320AS doesn't work in RAID ForumSEAGATE BARRACUDA 7200.11 ST3500320AS firmware problem?
