Hey there cooldudenz,

Have a go at Seagate's SeaTool Online, or their Desktop Version...

Hope that helps! :thumbsup:

right now im having probs with a raid controller, some im taking all my crap off and gunna format fresh. Im using a barracuda 2 (7200 rpm). Ever since i installed my X1950, it boots so slow. But i get beeps from my speaker system while loading a lot of things.

Just curious - do the beeps come from the drive itself?
