View Full Version : Maxtor FW firmware update needed?

Nov 6, 2003, 04:32 AM
Does anybody know what chipset Maxtor's 5000DV FW drive have? Should the firmware be updated? Anyone tried it?
On versiontracker, the updater discription talks only of FW800 drives. Is this the case?

Go to this thread:


Maxtor hasn't released any updates yet, but it doesn't seem that FW400 drives are 100% safe, and I've heard of failures with some Maxtor externals.
