Now that Seagate has released the proper fixed firmware for these drives, anyone know how to use it on a Mac Pro with a RAID attached to an Areca card?

Found this info:

"Updating Seagate SATA Drive firmware updates in Mac Pro
1. Download the matching firmware update file. (sometimes in the past Seagate support has sent links/codes to download updates)

2. Burn a CD-ROM from that ISO image with Toast or the Finder. If you don't know how, look here (Seagate Kbase doc): How to burn an .iso image onto a CD [201431]

4. Shut down the MacPro with the CD-ROM inside the tray.

3. Remove all drives and move the drive you want to update in bay one (the nearest to the CD-ROM Drive) (FYI - the lone drive/bay 1 note is a common tip from the past - but I had one Mac Pro owner say using the latest SD1 updater he updated several installed drives. But if in doubt, follow the older rules.)

4. Press the on/off button and press C on the keyboard.

5. After awhile your mac boots from the CD and the display looks like a DOS machine. (Command line/text) First read the info shown on the display. It is the same as in the read me text file.

6. After reading the info, you have to hit any key and the updater moves to the next screen.

7. Now you have to select the update option. For the matching type of hard drive, you have to select a letter. (In my case "C" for updating the ST311000340AS.)

8. After sending the binaries (updated firmware) to the drive, there should be a successful response. If not refer, to the troubleshooting section in the read me.

9. After successful update is noted, Press any key and the MacPro shuts down.

10. On the first powerup after the update, hold down the mouse button to eject the updater CD-ROM.

11. After OS X boots, check Apple System Profiler to ensure that everything is ok and that the updated drive's "revision" shows the updated firmware revision.
