These drives had to be flashed back to their original official firmware and set the region. Only then they worked flawlessly after applying a new firmware...
Furthermore, after a successful flash it is recommended to remove the drive and its IDE channel from Device Manager and restart Windows.

How do I go about unflashing the latest firmware back to the factory default?
