    Here is the offi­cial Seag­ate Momentus XT SD26 firm­ware update. SD26 is the latest ver­sion of the drive’s firm­ware as of the end of August, 2011. If you search around, you will eas­ily see that new Momentus XT drives are ship­ping with this ver­sion of the firm­ware, but Seag­ate isn’t mak­ing it easy to attain this firmware.

      Thanks for these links Dan. How­ever, I always advise a policy of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. As far as I can tell SD25 works fine, so unless someone is hav­ing a prob­lem with it I would sug­gest keep­ing it for now. Seag­ate have chosen not to release SD26 as an update for some reason, accord­ing to their own for­ums the update to SD26 “addresses a very spe­cific issue that we have not seen any­body report but besides that one thing it is no dif­fer­ent than 25.”
