Title says it all.
FW update software was fine, then drive began flashing on the LED.
Started to make funny noises too.
Reboot (Start -> Shutdown -> Restart) and computer came back, drive still flashing.
Hard reboot (Start -> Shutdown -> Shutdown) and the power back on again. Computer refuses to boot with drive connected.
Tried drive on another system. Will not be seen on the system where it would boot.
There is no way to fix this. The drive is fubar'd all to hell
Good job BTC.
