HDD Firmware

Hi,

every time when i boot my blade 460c g5 it shows me during the smart array post i have to upgrade the firmware of my hdd drive to version HPDD. the actual firmware of the HDD is HPDC - the smart array is 7.08.

the problem is there is no FW version HPDD available (300 GB 6G DP 10k - Model: DG0300FAMWN) to download on the HP site. i just opened a call on HP but they dont know this problem. Anyone had this problem ?

regards
