I did a successful update to my ST3500320AS to SD1A and after a day I heard weird noises on my HDD (clicking noises ), after that windows was beyond slow trying to access the files stored on that HDD and then this write delayed failure error message........
PLEASE !!!! If someone that can help (a moderator or someone that has the SD15 firmware or that knows where we can get it) is reading this.... I am literally begging you to help us cause apparently Seagate won't, or at least after they are cornered by the media,customers, oh yeah and they got some free time then they might.....
And to SEAGATE, say something about this -ANYTHING- !!!! When the first problem occurred you where so slow and so stubborn to admit that there was a problem, it was until lthe blogs, customer complains, and the media pushed you to.... And then you are so false saying: yes yes we are sorry, we shoulded acted faster... YOU ARE REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKE AGAIN.... I mean sorry is a very convenient word for you isn't it?,you might say that you are offering to pay... But what about the other people that lost their files in an attempt to get them because you choose to remain silent?. For the people that lost 6 months of work or more "sorry" is just not enough...
And maybe you are repeating the same mistake again, But believe me, I won't, this is the last of your products that I buy (that's a shame they are really good products) and I am not the only one you know?..

Same problem here
I'm going crazy, I don't want a drive that will do this..before upgrading to SD1A it worked perfectly.
I will try to adjust settings with hdparm tomorrow, that's the last thing I can think of trying. The problem seems to be simply that the drive goes into power saving / standby mode every 5 minutes or so.
