Hello, I pickup new sas drive Seagate Dell certified ST3600057SS (600gb 6gbts, 15k) hd but then connect to SAS 6 adapter I have in my Precision T5400 workstation. Unfortunately not working. SAS bios recognize but listed as Wrong Type. Also window 7 can see it but won't let me create virtual drive said "drive not ready". Yes my SAS 6 have latest firmware 25.47.....
Note: this SAS 6 controller have no problem when connected dell sas 146gb and 73gb or even Hitachi sas drive.
is this st3600057ss sas drive work with Dell SAS 6/IR controller? if not what controller will?

to see if your installation is correct.
Please post back and let me know if you need more help.
Yes, I am sure I installed the sas drive correct. I currently have two sas 146gb drive work perfectly. It might be have to do with Dell SAS 6/ir adapter, maybe it too old and can't handle this type of sas drive. The SAS 6/ir bios can see the drive but not recognize the volume/capacity of the drive. Window 7 can see it too, but said "drive not ready". This is Dell sas certified drive, I am not sure this type of drive required particular dell controller to work with.
I too pickup new SAS Seagate Dell certified ST3600057SS (600gb 15k) HD in other vendor, but when i put in my storage MD3000i say "UNCERTIFIED PHYSICAL DISK", probably because the firmware is not of DELL firmware compatible.
I did download from DELL site file "Seagate_ST3600057SS_ES64.df" is the upgrade file, but as "Dell MD Storage Manager utility" not recognized i can not update.
how i update the firmware these ST3600057SS with the firmware of dell?
They are programmed with Dell firmware by Seagate at the factory. There are "hacks" out there showing you how to force-flash a non-Dell-firmware drive with Dell firmware, but many of these attempts result in a non-functional drive. The ST3600057SS comes in a retail version with generic firmware and in an OEM version - each OEM with their own firmware installed on it; your Seagate can't be Dell-certified if it was certified for another vendor (HP, IBM, etc.).
