I followed the instructions on flashing my drive with the newest software and now my drive is unreadable but I can still connect to its webpage and its still giving me an ip address.

Is there a way to flash the bios with out having access to the disk drive ?

Thanks

Please post model number. Is this a NAS device?

Nm, I know what you are talking about now.

Looks like you messed up the drive. What you are connecting to is a small controller on the unit that serves the webpage and connects to the drive. If that controller can't see the drive, then there's no way to communicate to it to flash.

Contact Seagate, hopefully its still under warranty and they can send you a new one.
