WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 Firmware Corruption

Are there any quick self-service solution to repairing the firmware on a WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 internal drive?  Just wanted to know before sending the HD back for replacement.


Currently, there’s no firmware updates available for internal drive besides the previews generations of RE2 drives

There is a firmware update for WD1600YS, WD2500YS, WD4000YS, and WD5000YS hard drives that resolve a RAID set dropout issue. Please visit our  Downloads Library to download the firmware.

Please accept our apologies.
