The firmware utility requires the drive to be the only HDD in the 
system, and attached to a SATA port. This is a USB-attached drive (in a 
SATA/USB enclosure), and the eighth HDD connected to the system. Since 
it's also brand new, I don't know what the firmware would give me that 
the last revision--assuming my drive has an older firmware--didn't. But 
I cannot start re-jigging every HDD I have to try this.
