Seagate .11 or ES.2 HDDs are not compatible with x07 products - it's a hardware incompatibility. No matter how much firmware is updated by the Seagate drive or the Synology system - it will not make the system more compatible. The problem is random drive ejection due to the Seagate drives consume more power at random intervals - this will cause the drive to be ejected by the Synology x07 system. You may attempt to use version 731 on your system to attempt to lower the probability of your system encountering a random drive ejection - however it will not negate the issue.
The Seagate firmware issue, which can cause the drive to be ejected from a RAID system is also a factor with the current string of RAID issues by Seagate drives.
--However--software aside - it still doesn't rule out that the hardware of the Synology x07 system and the Seagate .11/ES.2 drives are not compatible.
Version 731 has updates which improve error handling with certain HDDs under certain conditions, Seagate .11/ES.2 Drives being the most to benefit from these new updates. It's recommended to update both the Seagate drive firmware and the Synology system firmware when available -- AND when you have a backup of all your data on your Seagate HDDs.
Please do not create separate threads about this Seagate .11/ES.2 Firmware discussion, your solo post was merged into the current thread.

I am using the ST31500341AS, and with CS407e, I have got a problem that my syno will not response to it's windows share / web gui, but I can still ping it.... is it caused by "ejected" by the syno? where can I check to confirm?
btw, I have 3 CC1H and 1 SD1A to form a RAID5 system, please help me to confirm so I may be buy a x08 system. I just wonder if it's my x07 hardware problem (i.e. RAM/CPU) or not.
