Current FW of My Barracuda Green harddisk ST2000DL003-9VT166 isCC3C. I've burned a bootable CD with BarracudaGreen-ALL-CC32.iso. I'm unable to upgrade the firmware.
Some informations :
HD mounted internally in a Tower DELL 780 optiplex (only this HD installed)
BIOS modified with following option : SATA AHCI activated, then desactivated with PCI ATA activated.
In both cases, warning message is the same : "Model matched, no firmware matched! Will not download Firmware. Model matched but firmaware version is not compartible".
Please, can you help me?

I can't be sure but I think Dell is your enemy here, it will be either they have their own FW if the drive was supplied by them, or they have a utility called Disk Sentinal or similar that thinks anything it's not heard of before is a virus and blocks it out, one thing quick that may sort it because I've had to do it before is to use a CD drive that isn't anything to do with Dell.

thanks for your answer. But please, how can I check if my HD is ok or not with your list . In other words, where can I find the referencer such as (eg) BGD15D.CCD3.AAAQ00.CC31.D554 on my HD or which tool can do it for me?
Thanks by advance.
