I have everything on several different back up drives (all older Seagates) and I just bought a WD 640, just in case.
I'll let ya know how it goes.

lets assume that the back of the mobo is the keyboard ports etc and also the right hand side
the non raid is the ich5r and is furthest from the left hand or bottom of the board if your case is vertical edge the port one is the bottom of those two or the third one from the lHS
the raid controller is the promise and does 0 1 and 0+1 and is the one nearest the left hand or bottom edge of the board port 1 marked as sata raid 1
try that one instead
but update the BIOS as well incase that is an issue it shouldn't be but as another suggestion while your doing this in dos shut down all stuff on the bios you dont need to do this i.e. disable the ports you dont need but put them all back the way you need to after you have flashed all of the disks you have that need to be
hope this is helpful and not teaching you to suck eggs

I have two of the 333AS drives, one with a SD15 firmware and one with a SD35 firmware. Both drive's model numbers match the requirements of the firmware update utility.
The drive with the SD15 firmware has updated successfully.
However, the drive with the SD35 firmware will not update. It generates a file open error.

Could someone from Seagate please provide a list of firmware revisions that are affected for these drives?
The CC and LC firmware revisions not withstanding, these appear to be hexidecimal version numbers, so you'll forgive me for not wanting to flash my seemingly higher revision SD35 with SD1B. Which brings up another question; have you ever heard of release engineering? Monotonically increasing revision numbers? No? Not ringing a bell? Finally, I just cannot let this pass without also asking, who posts software on a Friday night and then bails for the weekend? That confident about your QA, eh? I guess you can stand to be given the stellar performance turned in of late.
