So I have been flashing SAS HDD's using sq_untils I have had a lot of success when the firmware is already available to flash in a .LOD file however I am having an issue with a couple of different drives.

I find I have to flash HDD's after formatting to 512 block size when they have come out of Hitachi servers, so they have the Hitachi firmware on them such as 7FA6 on a ST6000NM0034 drive, I have found firmware from Seagate to flash to E005 or E0G5, when I try this I get this response;

Write buffer cmd: 3b 05 00 00 00 00 19 60 00 00
write buffer: Descriptor format, current; Sense key: Illegal Request
ASC=26, vendor specific qualification ASCQ=99 (hex)
Descriptor type: Field replaceable unit
code=0x3f
Descriptor type: Vendor specific [0x80]
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
bad field in Write buffer cdb

Can someone point me to the right post or help me with this error.

Thank you in advance.

I'm having this exact same issue. Did you ever find a solution?

As of yet I have had no success, the LOD file from Seagate isn't giving a successful flash on these drives.
