  1. [Portions Redacted] To: Subject: RE: Regarding Your Seagate Case # 02611920 [ ref:_00D00hhzl._50030Ne2AW:ref ] Date: Tue, 24 Jul 2012 15:47:08 -0700 Thanks for your follow-up on Support Case #02611920. Curiously, the eSATA firmware update is indeed available on the Seagate website, at the following URL: Link to firmware update Carefully following the instructions outlined in the embedded .pdf, I have successfully upgraded the firmware on my FreeAgent Pro 750. The drive now appears to be functioning as expected via an eSATA connection. I am able to read and write High Definition (HD) video files to and from the drive. Kindly close out this support ticket, making note of the availability of the firmware update.

I understand you have provided some links, which I have taken a look at, and while it may be true some issues may arise while using the drive with eSATA, there are no such thing as a firmware update for the external drive. > > For the time being I would probably suggest you make sure your eSATA drivers are up to date on the computer. I would strongly suggest you get the drivers from your motherboard manufacturer's website as those should be the strongest you can find for your machine. > > If you have any additional questions you may call us during your regional business hours listed below. > > Regards, > > Jean-Philippe D. > Seagate Tech Support (French/English) > 8am - 11:30am CT ; 1pm - 6pm CT > Monday - Friday > 1-800-732-4283 > Web: > Facebook: > Twitter: @AskSeagate > ref:_00D00hhzl._50030Ne2AW:ref
