I got 2 of them for free because a friend had so many problems he didn't trust them anymore. (even if I could fix them)
These things came with flawed firmware on them (CC34). They were clicking like crazy and constantly losing connection.
You need to flash firmware CC35 onto these drives otherwise they were doing the click of death. Go to seagates website and download the ISO image and burn it to a disk. Boot to the disk and use it to upgrade the firmware to a tested version. I say "tested" because nobody could have truly tested these things at seagate given how obvious the problems were. Somebody needs a new guy in charge of the QA department. ;)
