Here we go round the firmware tree, the firmware tree, the firmware tree …

May 30, 2012

We seem to be back on the drive firmware update path again. I recently had an issue with a customer system running desktop drives (yes, I know they shouldn’t but they do).  I checked the drive firmware with what I knew to be the latest from my drive vendor mate … and it was out of date.

So very quickly told the customer to check for latest/later version with vendor. Lo and behold they came up with an even newer version than I was aware of.

So the moral of the story is … contact your drive vendor and ask them what the latest version is for that drive. Don’t tell them what you have, just ask what the latest version is.

I don’t see why my friends in the drive business should escape all this firmware fun! :-)
