    How to upgrade from sd 26 to sd 28?
    I have followed the tutorial from io101 but no luck.
    The resource is busy keeps popping up.
    Any ideas?

    I just upgraded my 500 GB XT from SD 25 to SD 28 (it originally came with SD 24). It might just be my imagination, but vibration and noise seem to have decreased somewhat and iStat nano registers a whopping decrease in temperature; it’s running at 36*, whereas usually I see it go anywhere from 53-59*. I could just be biased by hope for noise/vibration, but you can’t argue with iStat!

    You say you took your HDD to a PC seven feet away.
    I was about to do the same until I read the warning notice on the seagate PC update:
    “Remove al external drives before proceedin”,
    And “do not use to update a Raid array”.
    Alarm bells rung as:

    1 The HDD from my mac was in an external enclosure.
    2 The PC has a Raid 0 as its system disk.

    Does the Seagate software identify the disk to be updated?
    Do you specifically select the disk to be updated?
    Doe the seagate software update the disk you specify to update and only the disk you choose?

    Having suffered with Seagate software on the MAC where Burnt 8 ISO disks 6 CD- R and 2 DVDs with no boot success. I tried the superdrive as an internal and external superdrive with no successful boot. I am less than confident that the Seagate software will be well behaved running on a PC, I have a complete backup of my MAC HDD, so I am more concerned that the software will not attempt any update of any of my PC disks.

    I agree with your call for Seagate to write the code for direct execution on a Mac.

    Perhaps if Seagate could be persuaded to look at number of MACs sold and and that they are at the premium end of the PC market, rather than overall market share, they may be persuaded that it is worthwhile to fully support he MAC as sales of premium HDD products such as the Momentus XT will more likely go to MAC and similar high end PCs, than to mass market IBM PCs?

    I run SD28 on my Asus laptop, it might have solved the problems on your PC’s but it still beach balls on my computer making even surfing annoying as hell.
    Guess im left with no choise but to buy an ssd and just give seagate a piece of my mind on the phone.
