I’ve several Versions of the WD5000AAKX
I startet whit Firmware Version 15 and there were no Poblems up to FW17.
Now all of the HDDs buyable have Firmware 18 and this Firmware does not show any Temperature.
I’ve used Smartmontools, different Version, Linux WinXP. I also tried it with HD-Tune 2.55.
Does any one have a clue how to solve this issue?
WD isn’t known for supporting newer Firmwares.
( I also tried a FW15 board on an FW18 HDD but there are to many changes and it’s malfunction already in BIOS.
