Subject: [gentoo-user] [OT] firmware update for an external (USB) hard drive

Hi,

googling didn't help me.
I've just got an Intenso Memory Center. According to smartctl it  
contains a
Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001-9YN166 hard disk.
And smartctl reminds me to check for a firmware update, and indeed,  
there is one.
But how can I update the firmware for hard disk connected via USB ?
(The stand alone utility from Seagate doesn't see the drive.)

Many thanks for a hint,

Helmut.
