Very strange, maybe a stupid question but are you sure you get correct ISO file from Seagate site ? (ST31000340AS support is explicitly written when you boot from ISO ?)
What is your motherboard reference ?

I just upgraded 5 of my ST31500341AS drives. My drives were PN# 9JU138 - 300 (all the same) with original SD17 firmware which I updated to SD1A a few weeks ago. They are now running the SD1B firmware. No data loss or bricking issues. You can upgrade as long as your drive is PN# 9JU138 - 300 or PN# 9JU138 - 336 and has firmware versions from SD15 through to SD1A. The only issue I have is that HD Tune doesn't seem to be able to report any cache (Buffer = n/a).

Hum Hum...I have flashed my 6 drives with an Athlon X2 on a nforce4 motherboard.. so... you can forget the "Intel only" story
Probably a specific incompatibility with some (a lot of ?) motherboards.
Your best chance will be probably to remove your disks and flash them with a Friend's PC (instead to wait a solution from Seagate, you can wait for long.. )

Just for information, initial statement page, Seagate Knowledge Base 207931 has been updated, you can now follow steps and enter your model then serial to check if you need or able to update your drive (don't ask me if it's reliable )

I'm hoping to see some more reports on the SD1B firmware before I make my move. I don't want to end up with a bricked drive like so many other people.
