Hello,
I have a Samsung HM100UI 1TB 5400rpm 8MB 2.5" harddrive and it has a firmware problem.
So windows says "unknown usb device". I need to reach my data on that harddrive :( 
How can I fix/update its firmware?
Any help please?
:??:

It's not the HDD that has a Firmware problem, it's the External Casing that you have put the HDD into.
Get a better casing or then use the SATA port on the Mobo to get the data.

Well, when you connect it to the SATA port what does the rig say?
