Seagate GoFlex Wireless Firmware Update
Released in 2011, the Seagate GoFlex Satellite mobile was one of the first wireless external hard drives to become available.
It was designed for use with devices that required more storage but had limited connectivity options, like the iPad.
However, while accessing the GoFlex wireless external hard drive and streaming data you couldn’t connect to the internet. This could be quite frustrating.
Fortunately, there is now a firmware update that fixes this problem, version 1.3.5.015.
The new firmware update also potentially increases the battery life from 5 to 10 hours. This is more in line with the iPad that has a battery life of 10 hours.
In addition it also allows up to 8 connected clients at any one time. Although if streaming quality HD content it is advised to stick with the existing 3 client limit.
There is a link below, that includes the update and instructions on how to load it.
• Ability to join an existing Wi-Fi network (Internet access while connected to the GoFlex Satellite)
• Support for more than 3 users
• Password change option located on main screen
• Support for M4A (MP4) meta data (album art, song title, artists, etc are now displayed in the various menus)
• A-Z scroll bars added to Movies and Documents screens
• Option for extended battery life when combined with the current iOS GoFlex Media App (download/play feature on settings page)
• The ability to toggle between the native video player and GoFlex Media video player for Android App on the settings page.
