The only Seagate issue which affects Synology systems is the power consumption of the drive - which prevents it from being used in Synology x07 systems or older. This is a hardware incompatibility and as far as I am aware of, cannot be corrected using any amount of firmware updates by either Seagate or Synology.
What will happen if you use a Seagate .11 drive in an older system is that the drive will be randomly ejected from the Synology System during power up operations, such as during booting or waking up from Hibernation. Also, using a larger PSU will not resolve the compatibility error, it exists at the motherboard level.
If it really can't, how can I return my product ? From my point of view, it's simply NOT WORKING.

No needs to change drives. Just try to update firmware following corresponding knowledge base and if it's required (depending of your actual firmware).
Do You think, change firmware in Synology 207+ or in HDDs ?
