Description An issue exists that may cause some Seagate hard drives to become inoperable immediately after a power-on operation. Once this condition has occurred, the drive cannot be restored to normal operation without intervention from Seagate.
Data on the drive will be unaffected and can be accessed once normal drive operation has been restored.
This is caused by a firmware issue coupled with a specific manufacturing test process. Root Cause This condition was introduced by a firmware issue that sets the drive event log to an invalid location causing the drive to become inaccessible. The firmware issue is that the end boundary of the event log circular buffer was set incorrectly.
During Event Log initialization, the boundary condition that defines the end of the Event Log is off by one. This error is detected and results in an "Assert Failure", which causes the drive to hang as a failsafe measure. When the drive enters failsafe further update s to the counter become impossible and the condition will remain through subsequent power cycles.
The problem only arises if a power cycle initialization occurs when the Event Log is at or some multiple of thereafter. For a drive to be susceptible to this issue, it must have both the firmware that contains the issue and have been tested through the specific manufacturing process.
