Subject: [Leica] Seagate disk drive recall

Thanks. All 3 of my Seagate drives are listed as potential problem drives 
(the drive names and serial numbers match the list). Two are 1.5TB and one 
is 500GB.
I'm hoping that all 3 had the firmware update done to them prior to being 
sold to me.
I'm on the phone to Seagate right now but I suspect that I'll be on hold for 
a long while.

There are some Seagate Barracuda DiamondMax drives (most notably the 1.5TB 
size, it would seen) that have a serious problem that requires your 
attention. If you have a Seagate drive that you bought in the last year I 
recommend that you look into this.> > If you are a Mac user you can find all 
of this information in the System Profiler. Look under the Serial-ATA tab 
unless you have a RAID card.> > I have about 20 Seagate drives and 1 of them 
(a 500GB SATA) has this problem.> > > >
