It was purchased a few weeks ago, a retail box, not an OEM product.
Was it a DM series or Barracuda XT?
Otherwise, lucky you. In NZ they don't seem to sell anything but bare OEM drives with 1 year warranty.

I probably should have looked at the manufacture date before i used it, does 6 Gbits though. It's a Barracuda 2TB Sata w/ 64 MB cache and 7200RPM. Defintely not a green but no mention of the XT. It's my storage drive so ididn't pay as much attention to it as i did my SSD. I picked it up at a local big box store, otherwise yeah Newegg and Amazon and a few others mostly sell oem 1 years although I've see a few 3 years too... might be WD though.

I have a two ST3000DM001-9YN166, Serial number S1F***** with Firmware version CC9E and is the same Problem ...
Seagate has no idea how to solve the problem and we have to use programs other companies to fix the problem.
Seagate is not moore the company we knew, have lowered both the quality of its products that are forced down to 1 year warranty, in Europe and that is established by law which are 2 year warranty, but the laws are passed the .... This model will drive faster than unemployment also have made, about the worst of all.
Would have to send all of us, all drives back to Seagate, millions of hard drives. You will see as well exchange the company policy.
This is a shoot HD and I buy never moore Seagate ... sorry

The solution to this problem is easy.
Send all drive back and if you receive them with the same problem, send it back again.
No updates or nonsense, that's their job.
When you receive it, connect it and if it makes noise, back to Seagate again.
It's the only solution and we should do it all.
This is the only thing that would change the attitude of Seagate.
Guys, gentlemen, don't do more like idiots, it's time for action.
CHANGE FOR NEVER AGAIN "CHIRPS"

Any news about the issue ??? Will there be any comments from Seagate representatives about whole situation with these models and particularly about not enough unfixed chirping in CC4H ?

The new firmware does indeed solve the "chirp" sound coming from our seagate drives but it is NOT a solution for the underlying cause, the parking disk heads for some power saving reasons."
Can't confirm that. Even on CC4H its still chirping - because of parking heads is still there. The sound became quiter, but it still disturbs - only disabling PWM with 3-rd party utilities helps to avoid "chirping". So the issue is still urgent and needs to be fixed.
I still cannot understand, why just not to provide us utility to disable PWM and viola... no complains!
I beleive that there is someone obstinate in Seagate who rather will die, then allow users to be rest in peace and silence without that stupid "chirping"...

I have two Seagate (2TB STBD2000101) and one (3TB STBD3000100) Barracuda drives as well. Would you tell me what software you used to disable PWM on the drives. Hopefully it is a free solution.

I tihnk the guys here were using a program called CrystalDisk.
By the way, putting your email address on a public forum is a great way to end up with a big pile of SPAM.

I can confirm that the chirping is still happening with the latest firmware.
My hard drive is ST2000DM001-9YN164 with CC4H firmware.
The frequency of "chirp" is pretty random from what I have observed.
Sometimes it happens 1-4 times per hour and sometimes it happens multiple times PER MINUTE.
Disabling APM does seem to stop the chirp.
Does this chirp problem happen with EVERY ST2000DM001 or are there ST2000DM001 drives that do not have this problem?
