Seagate ST2000DL004 HD204UI

Reported by: lennart Owned by: Christian Franke
Priority: minor Milestone: Release 7.0
Component: drivedb Version: 6.6
Keywords: Cc:


So this drive is a bit strange. Is reports as Seagate (and is branded as one) but also contains the HD204UI tag from Samsung. I bought it in July 2013.

It seems to work fine when I modify the drivedb.h entry of „Seagate Barracuda Green (AF)“ with unknown firmware.

The firmware version is the same as of the broken Samsung HD204UI.

However, when I search for my serial number on Seagate's website it shows up as a „Seagate Barracuda Green“ with no new firmware and the specifications according to the website are as follows:

Product Brand 	Samsung

Milestone: Release 6.7

This ST2000DL004 HD204UI is very likely a Seagate branded version of the original SAMSUNG HD204UI (SpinPoint F4 EG): Same firmware version number, ATA/SATA versions, attribute sets, log directory, SATA phy event counters, ... and both models do not properly indicate the 4KiB physical sectors.

The 'native' Seagate Barracuda Green drives use a different firmware version syntax like CC32.

There are also some other legacy Samsung drive series where Seagate used the same naming scheme, see the various "Seagate Samsung SpinPoint ..." entries. So the new entry will possibly be named "Seagate Samsung SpinPoint F4 EG (AF)" regardless of its new marketing name.

Thanks. I bought it soon after the merger so left-over stock that was just rebranded sounds logical.
