COMPAQ BD03663622 drive firmware update hungs

Hi,

We have large number of COMPAQ BD03663622 drives on ML370 G1 servers (with SmartArray 5300 controller)
When I try to update these drives firmware with firmware maintenance CD 7.40 update proccess hungs. Drive LED flashing, but update proccess never completed (I wait more than 1 hour...). Same behavior with all BD03663622 drives on all our ML370 G1 servers.
There are no problems with another drives updates.
Our BD03663622 drives have firmware version BDC4, 7.40 maintenance CD have BDCBB version.
Any suggestions? (except "e4services" suggestion 'why do you want to do this firmware flash')

Kov, options ROMPAQ you mention doesn't contain firmware for BD03663622 drives...

KOV, thanks
Updated from diskette 13 to BDCB version,
then I try to update from 7.40 maintenance CD, but I think BDCB from options ROMPAQ is equal to BDCBB from 7.40 maintenance CD (firmware maintenance CD say no "no update need")
Will be nice if HP will write advisory about this issue.
