Can we confirm that it`s "definately" the hardware that`s at fault, and not that the poxy filesystem being used isn`t locking it up cos it`s not knowing how to handle the 1.5T ?

With such a small number (I`ve not seen anything about this b4 tbh), and not knowing what users` installs are like, it would be hard to imagine further.

It`d be prudent to test on Vista/XP/Linux/Mac/etc, and I`m pretty sure that Seagate would do this ? But then these systems get botch-patched..

I dunno. I mean if a firmware upd8 was required for ALL of the drives, I`d have a bigger sympathy for the users, on the other side, if the firmware works on the majority and in the Seagate labs - what is it about the minority.

It`s pretty cloak`n`dagger, and people will slate Seagate irrationally just for this, but who knows if it turns out to be yet another mobo/bios upd8 required ala WD Raptors and so on.

Tricky. Best of luck to all.
