I have a LSI Embedded MegaRaid controller, with 2 Seagate ST3300657SS SAS disk. One is at 0006 Firmware and the other at 0008
I follow the procedure to obtain a new firmware by selecting the model and serial but it say there is no fw
Someone send me a firmware: Eagle SAS 0008.LOD but I have no utility to upgrade the firmware
Where can I get this utility, or what is the procedure?
thank you for your support

The regular version of sea tools also seems to be able to recognize the SAS drives and give an option to download firmware. Did this work for you? I have the 450gb version of the same drive, and I wonder if the firmwares used are the same or do I need a firmware for my specific size? Do you think you could send it to me as well?

Thanks for the help. Looks like the HP firmware needs the SAN in order to be loaded, and doesn't have a standalone install utility. I'm really looking for the retail firmware anyway. Hopefully the OP can hook me up, and maybe point me in the direction of the person who hooked them up so I can make sure it's OK to install on the 450gb.

Hi, I can help you.
I own six ST3300657SS drives, which originally came with 0006 firmware.
When I bothered with updating firmare, I made some search over the Net and managed to find updater and 0008 firmware for my drives (from HP site). This is NOT HP-branded firmware (though there are some on HP site), this is a retail Seagate-branded firmare.
And yes, the firmware for 300Gb, 450Gb and 600Gb 15K.7 drives seems to be the same.
Go to this link and download the package.
You will need a Host controller. Pls. note that raid-controller is no go. I myself used Intel SASUC8I (aka LSI SAS3081E-R).
Try and good luck.

Had the same Problem. You can flash dhe drives easy also with raid controllers.
You need megacli tool
extract the tool to a folder an put your firmware file inside it
To list the devices:
MegaCli -PDList -aALL
To flash the device:
MegaCLI -PdFwDownload -PhysDrv[15:0] -f yourfirmware.lod -a0
[15:0] means enclosure ID 15 and Slot 0 ;-)
-a0 means Adapter 0
With Adaptec you can use the Adaptec Storage Manager (ASM)
Here you can flash with gui
If someone needs the 0008 Firmware. . . .

Any chance you can repost that firmware utility update again? Looks like the link has been deleted. I need to flash firmware from na00 to 0006 or 0008. Not sure if its possible, but can't seem to find the firmware to flash to begin with.
