MacBook Pro (Unibody) clicking and freezing with this hard drive.
I know that Apple released an update for ST9500420ASG (with G-Force Protection Function) hard drive, but this fix not support hard drives without this function.
Please, release firmware update for NON-G-Force Protection hard drives.

I have the same problem like you before and I am waiting also for an update for the NON-G-Force Protected hard drive, cause it is an annoying problem. I hope seagate will not only support mac book users, cause I bought the hdd for my lenovo laptop.
So please release a firmware update!

I encountered the same problem like above mentioned.
This is my first time bought Seagate hard disk. I'm very disappointed to such product.
Please somebody help to prvoide the solution something like firmware update.

I have the same problem with original Macbook Pro, it seems the disk is parking and spinning down in ridiculous moments, it can park itself every two seconds for ten times when I browse the web with a loud "click" and a froze the mac for a second. It helps to use hdapm and set the disk apm to max, but this is not a solution.
I want to know...should I wait for firmware upgrade from Seagate or buy something else?
please, someone answer.

Very interesting: I was wrote to Seagate support, but they didn't answer... What It Mean? I bought your HD and you not support...
HELLO SEAGATE!!! Why? Answer something...

The comment from Seagate-Support to me on this issue is: Wait and watch!
It looks and sounds like the ST9500420ASG!
What sounds to be different from our hard drives (ST9500420AS) ? It is the same problem!
