Questions & Answers for samsung HD204UI

Question

HD204UI - 512 Byte Sector Emulation?

I am interested in purchasing several HD204UI drives, but some of the software I need to run (Windows Home Server and Hyper-V) does not work with Advanced Format (4k sector) drives.

I've tried searching the Samsung website but was not able to determine whether or not the HD204UI can run in a 512 byte sector emulation mode? (To Windows the drive looks like it has 512 byte sectors, but internally the drive would use 4k sectors?) Can this be done?

Thanks for your help.

Question

I just bought 4 spinpoint hard drives, model HD204UI. I read on the web I need to do a firmware update. Do I?

The lable on the top of the HD has something that looks like a manufacture date. It is number 4, and says "2011.01". I assume this means it was made in Jan 0f 2011. So, do I need to do a FW update?

Question

HD204UI

There is discussion on some of the web forums that this drive requires a firmware patch if NCQ is used.
The patch is available on the UK website but not here. Does the drive require a firmware patch, why is this not listed under support?
