Suggested Solution

New firmware version: CC4C, CC4D and CC9D (released together and are functionally equivalent)

This article applies to the following models:

Model Number Part Number Capacity
ST3000DM001 9YN166 3TB
ST2500DM001 9YN16L 2.5TB
ST2000DM001 9YN164 2TB
ST1000DM003 9YN162 1TB

Previous versions of firmware with these models and part numbers are CC46, CC47, CC48, CC49 or CC9C.

The firmware update utility runs within Windows. Download and run the CC4C, CC4D, and CC9D firmware update utility here. The firmware tool will determine which version (CC4C, CC4D, or CC9D) is correct for your drive.

For non-Windows systems with Intel compatible processors we also offer a bootable CD ISO image, which will create a bootable CD.
