I just recently installed a second hard drive (it's the third bleedin replacement drive that seagate has sent me, unreliable damned thing). However, I am now getting all sorts of warning in the system event viewer:

The warning has been coming right before my recent bsods (three today) and its source is given as Ultra
and this is the message that it gives me

"The driver has detected that device \Device\Scsi\ultra1 has old or out-of-date firmware. Reduced performance may result.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp."

anyone run into this or have any ideas on how to remedy the problem? Thanks much!

ok a few questions first

is the drive IDE or SCSI

do you have any sort of raid setup and where is the drive plugged in

have you checked seagate for any type of driver updates they might have for the drive.

You probably need an updated driver for your IDE card then, why not just plug the HD into your Mobo or do you alredy have 4 devices taking up all the slots?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
