I install this drive as a replacment into my laptop running windows7. I know seagate have little worse seek times but I measure in HD Tach and HD tunes seeks arround 28ms. My old WD had seeks arround 18ms.
I already tried run the tools to see if there is any silent options I can turn off but I didnt find anything.
Is it posible to get any firmare I can try if that will fix the problem?
Exact model is ST9500325AS 500gb and was pulled from seagate expansion partable drive.

I did try sea tool dos version but under advanced settings I didnt find any options about AAM. Thats why I wanna try diffrent firmware because Im worried they made the external drive seek slover. Or do u know any other software I can use to see or change settings?
Well after some search looks like IBM tool might works because seagate didnt have the option to change AAM for some reason. I dont have my notebook here so I gonna try it monday.
