Here's a warning to everyone about a potential problem with certain drives bearing the Seagate or Maxtor label:

Seagate website

There are instructions on how to check serial numbers and check your drives. I found I had a fairly new 1TB drive which did need to be fixed. If you don't update the firmware in time, your drive may become a rather expensive door stopper.

Rather safe than sorry....
