All depends on stock on hand.
RMA it...SELL the replacement and THEN by a WD. At least that way your new WD hdd is partially subsidized by Seagate ;)
go idea but I will just change a step

RMA the drive,
order at the same time the WD
Do what you want with the new Seagate after.

But is it worth the shipping to return it ?

30gb vertex, i hear it's a pretty good one, and isn't susceptible to the degradation alot of them are to, due to trim.

To Brian if you don't have serial port but your board have a serial socket , I can send you a connector for free if you want to give it a try. if it's on your p5q-e...it have the socket on the board

I would get your save games off the drive, and don't blame Seagate....

HD's will eventually fail, and other than the firmware issues Seagate had a stellar track record.

Soldering wires on will most likely void the warranty. I've been trying to source a connector to avoid this for my own de-bricking rig. Zero data loss was worth the risk though for me.

but is it a permanent fix?

to be honest, i prefer the chance at making 60 dollars from a new drive than getting game saves back.

It should be provided you install a non-bricking version of the firmware afterwards.
