Fresh Windows 7 Install Will Not Detect New Seagate Hard Drive

Feb 20, 2012

Me and my fiance just finished putting together her first real gaming computer and we wanted to use a Patriot 64g SSD to put win 7 on and use a 1TB Seagate drive for all the rest of the storage. The installation of Win 7 onto the SSD went nice and smooth but when we get into windows it is not detecting the 1TB HD at all. Funny thing is that when I go in to the SSD properties, I can see the Seagate under the sharing options. The only info I have found is how to clone off an existing hard drive with Win 7 on it not how to do a fresh install on 2 new drives.

Seagate Says 3TB Drive Requires 64-bit OS?

May 21, 2010

Quote: Seagate has confirmed plans to release a 3TB hard disk drive later this year. However, the 3TB drive will only be recognized by 64-bit operating systems, such as Windows 7, Vista and Linux. "Not only that, but you may not even be able to see 2.1TB of a 3TB drive when using Windows XP," wrote Thinq's Ben Hardwidge Read More: Seagate says 3TB drive requires 64-bit OS | TG Daily

Locking A Seagate External Drive With Windows 7?

Oct 24, 2012

I am running Windows 7 on my computer and have somehow used windows security to lock my seagate external drive. The computer can tell that the drive is there but I cannot access anything on the drive and also cannot write to it. I have tried talking to tech support from Seagate and they said that since I have used a third party program that I need to contact them. It is difficult to get a response from them. I am a novice when it comes to things like this.

Windows 7 Won't Install To Seagate Barracuda 7200.7

Feb 27, 2010

Had Windows XP installed on an old Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 120GB.Formatted the drive for a clean install from Windows 7 DVDNow I get this:

"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu."

It is, and yes it can. And why is it even saying this when the installer can format and partition this drive till it turns blue.It gives me the option to "Load Driver" but there are no drivers for this HDD, it's all pre programmed in the motherboards.

Seagate External Hard Drive Not Recognized By Computer

May 5, 2012

I have attached a Seagate 500 GG external hard drive to my computer but it is not showing up in My Computer.I have browsed similar threads and on their advice gone into Device Manager.The drive is there but with no letter assigned to it but when I right click to assign one, it refers me to Windows Help, which is unable to solve the problem. There are actually two extra ikons in Device Manager - one marked FAT Healthy (EISA Configuration) and the other just marked (GPT Protective Partition).The device is acknowledged as working properly in Device Manager.The files on this drive were created on a Mac, which may be the source of the problem? Most of them I will therefore not be able to read, but there is one which is a .mov file which I should be able to read and hopefully copy - if I can access it.Is there any way I can access the drive via my PC (Windows XP) or will the drive have been formatted for Mac only and therefore is inaccessible via PC?

Computer Won't Boot With New Seagate Barracuda Drive (Secondary)

Aug 29, 2012

Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. W/ASUS P7P55D Deluxe board. Very stable and non buggy. Computer was running great with multiple drives. I substituted one of my 1TB drives with a brand new Seagate 3 TB drive. With the new drive hooked up, the computer will not boot and gives a message that there is no hard drive detected, put media in and hit the key. (something to that effect).

If I enter the bios in the condition, it shows all the drives in their correct order and the boot sequence is the first hard drive, CD, etc. It has detected the new drive as drive #3. But it will not boot. But, if I disconnect the new drive (power and SATA connector), the compute will boot up fine. I have checked all the connectors ad they seem fine. Is there something about the sequence in which the SATA connectors have to be connected?

Seagate GoFlex 2 TB USB 3 Drive Has Suddenly Stopped Working

Jan 29, 2013

My Seagate GoFlex 2 TB USB 3 drive has suddenly stopped working. When it happened, I was having many issues with Windows (for about 10 minutes and 3 reboots). It seems to have calmed down now but I am still having problems with USB devices. When I plug the external HD into the top USB ports (next to the wireless dongle for keybd/mouse), the keyboard stops working. In the system error logs I am getting this critical error: The driver DriverWUDFRd failed to load for the device RootSIDESHOW000. I am also noticing that I have an unknown device in my device manager. I am also having a message come up when I start the computer saying that Windows cannot connect to the Group Policy Controller. It says that it is timing out. [code]

Seagate Extension 1TB External Drive Falls In Deep Sleep?

Nov 7, 2010

I'm wondering if anyone else has had the following issue with USB connected external drive and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit:

When plugged in, the external drive is recognized by the OS, is accessible and in every aspect functions normally. After a period of non-use of the computer, e.g. 8 hours, the USB device gets knocked out. Logging back to Windows, and the 1st message will be "Unrecognized USB device", and the external drive is not visible anymore.

The only way to get the device back is to disconnect its power supply, and plug it back in.

I've done the following :

1) Changed the USB power settings of the OS. USB devices are not allowed to go to sleep

2) Changed the power setting from Seagate Manager to not allow the drive to go to sleep

3) Changed USB Legacy to Enabled on BIOS

3TB Seagate Capacity Reduced To 750GB After Failed Windows 7 Install

Nov 14, 2012

I tried installing 64bit Win 7 Ultimate on mirrored 3TB Seagate HDD using a Digitus RAID card and failed. After the failed attempt, I disconnected the HDD and plugged the primary HDD to an on-board SATA connector only to find its capacity reduced to 750 GB. Windows Preinstallation Environment shows the same size and running clean produced no effect.

Something odd I noticed after running diskpart is that no matter how many drive is connected to onboard SATA, it only shows the 750 GB and the PC name is MINWINPC.

I`m completely stuck with this and cannot figure any solution. Please anyone help me restore the original 3TB size.

Seagate Harddrive Test Tool Fail But Hard-drive Data Seems Intact?

May 29, 2012

I have this WD My Passport external portable harddrive which I have used for a couple of years. I was writing something to the drive one day when the USB connection seems to be somewhat loose and the drive disconnected momentarily and reconnected itself but the file I was trying to write ended prematurely...Now when I try to use the Seagate Harddrive test tool for windows and do a Short Generic test and the result failed.. I am fear it might have been caused by the disconnection and might eventually corrupt the entire drive... I try to run chkdsk but there aren't any errors detected it seems and files seems to be accessible as normal... Is there a way to fix the harddrive without losing data in the drive or confirm the drive is indeed failing?

Seagate Freeagent 1TB

Sep 7, 2009

I recently upgraded from Windows Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional. The problem I am having is that my Seagate Freeagent 1TB drive wont load in Windows 7. I have to keep going to Device Manager and Uninstalling the driver and then plugging it back in so it automatically installs itself and then when I shut down the computer I have to do the process again.

I thought things that worked with Windows Vista were supposed to work with Windows 7.

Any solutions or help on this problem would be appreciated. PS I have already tried installing newer drivers, I have the latest ones, and I know this is a software issue as I am able to access the drive as normal after re-installing it each time.

Seagate HDD Won't Boot

Recently my PC just randomly crashed and upon restart, would not barely get past POST screen and get stuck on "Detecting IDE Drives...". I isolated the problem to my Seagate main drive. I went into diskpart and tried list disk, but the drive would not even display there. Does this mean my drive is pretty much dead?

Seagate DiscWizard - How To Restore

Apr 23, 2012

Seagate provides a FREE download of their Seagate DiscWizard It is Acronis True Image, but slightly tweaked for Seagate.I have used it many many times for XP, and it is fairly 'idiot proof'.I cannot say the same for Windows 7 Imaging.Creating the image is 'idiot proof'Restoring the image is a mental challenge for me.Say I had just one partition on a drive, and I create an image.When you try to restore an image, you have to choose from three checkboxes

- CMD 100 MB
- OS (your real partition)

there should be one box that you could tick to restore my simple one partition drive, BUT THERE AIN'T So I have to decide which of the three checkboxes to tick I would like to tick the lot, BUT YOU CAN'T You can only tick one at a time.I do not know which one to do first.And if that was not enough of a problem, you have to decide whether to make it Active

(Do I make the CMD Active ?)
(Do I make the OS Active ?)
(Do I position the CMD Hard left)
(Do I position the OS hard left)

And if that was not enough of a dilemma, You are given two ways to Restore the other two checkboxes

- You can do a mini reverse (Before allowing the Restore) to tick one more checkbox, OR

- You can Restore each checkbox one at a time.Either way, you still have to decide on making each Active, and 'hard lefting'.Needless to say, I got it wrong, and am about to delete all the partitions (CMD apparently being considered a partition) and try Restoring again.

Computer Does Not Recognise Seagate HDD

Jul 2, 2012

I recently purchased a usb 3.0 enclosure from silverstone model ts07b and a new 2 tb drive from seagate model ST2000DM001; the usb 3.0 card is from syba model SD-PEX20093. The problem I am having is that when I plug the enclosure into the usb 3.0 slot with the seagate hdd the computer does not recognize it, but when I plug in another 2tb drive from WD (caviar green wd20ears) the computer recognizes it. I know the seagate is not dead because when I plug the enclosure into a usb 2.0 slot the computer recognizes it. Now I need to know what I should replace, should I get a new enclosure or pci card?

Seagate GO External HD Into Internal HD

Jul 15, 2012

I had a 2 TB, and 3TB Seagate Go HDs and decided they would be best used as internal drives, turns out they both crashed completely upon SATA connection in the motherboard, I first guessed probably due to the difference in boot record. Upon reformatting in NTFS, I have found that the drives run very sluggish, I have been debating on just buying a new USB drive and copying my files, then getting rid of these 2 HDs. This doesn't make sense to me as I used to think all HDs were the same, does anyone know any reason why these 2 external drives are killing my system performance after they were made into internal drives (also why would they completely crash before).

Win 7 Support For Seagate Disk

Aug 28, 2009

In Windows 7 RTM I have had trouble with one of my two HDs, a Seagate 300 GB. During Windows 7 installation, installer "could not find drivers" when the Seagate was the first SATA drive. Once the Western Digital drive was set as the first drive, system installed ok.

After installation, the Seagate shows in the Disk Management as 300 GB, but if look at contents with Explorer, it has only 125 GB capacity. Can this be a Seagate firmware problem? (Windows 7 RC earlier had no problems with this drive when the system had Win7RC + Vista + XP.)

Windows 7 Backup To Seagate 500mb?

Jan 1, 2012

Continuing from a previous discussion, I backed up this computer (HP Pavilion desktop 2.7 mhz 6 gig) to my external Seagate hard drive, using Windows 7 backup routine, (after re-formatting the Seagate). Everything has worked just fine.I did a second backup today, and when I went to look at the external drive, it appeared as if no changes had been made (same date as the 1st backup to the 3 files on the disk). So I opened up "Mike-PC" and aha, the next file had today's date. OK, that fine, and total disk space used equals total disk space used on the internal hard drive. So everything's cool, but I wish the backup routine would leave a "last modified" label up front.If I use this same external hard drive to back up my wife's brand new HP laptop, will it clobber my backup, or will it make a new file?

New Seagate HDD - BSOD From Torrent Applications

Dec 24, 2012

I've been having a lot of problems with torrenting lately. I tried to figure out why I kept getting BSOD's from simply installing the torrent applications on my computer. It all started when I needed a new hard drive. I bought a Seagate HDD at Best Buy back in October. After installing everything that I needed to on my computer, I started having problems. I would constantly get blue screens which I couldn't figure out for a long time.

I've got two laptops. The one I'm primarily using is a Samsung QX411 with Windows 7 64-bit and the other is an ASUS X53U with Windows 7 64-bit. Both not running torrents and ended up with constant BSOD's. I took the Samsung in to Best Buy and they told me I had 29 viruses, even with my virus protector giving me no warning of having a single virus on my computer. After downloading uTorrent, I apparently had this weird uTorrent toolbar, which, I believed, at the time, that what was driving the viruses. I've never had a single problem with torrents or uTorrent ever up until now.

I downloaded uTorrent off of their website. I even tried Bittorrent but that ended up with these apparent "viruses" as well. Somehow, this StartNow toolbar, known for vicious viruses, had been added to my computer without my knowledge and this other strange toolbar that gave me a weird homepage with virus ads below a Bing search bar in the center.

Evidently, the new Seagate HDD I bought for the Samsung did fail and I ended up having to get a new one replaced and installed. I lost everything on my computer. Now I'm using a the 2nd new HDD and it's already given me problems with BSODs. I wanted to see if I could transfer the uTorrent over from the ASUS since it's no longer having torrent or blue screen issues instead of downloading it from uTorrent's website and it still gave me another BSOD.

I took it back into Best Buy recently and they told me that I had 49 viruses this time completely out of no where since everything on my computer was completely brand new and they removed uTorrent off of my computer once again. I haven't had a single problem since they removed it but I just don't understand what I can do about the Blue Screening. I can't use these Blue Screen applications to recognize what's causing the problem since every time I get a BSOD, it says failed to create dump files.

Seagate GoFlex Desk Driver?

Oct 3, 2010

I purchased a 2TB Seagate GoFlex Desk External HDD and Windows did not auto-detect it.So I went under Device Manager and under Other Devices, the Seagate drive was listed with the yellow exclamation. It shows that the driver is not found. I had windows search online and it found nothing. The only way I know to get it back is to do a repair/restore of windows? I am afraid to do this as I have to much to risk losing. Is there any other way to obtain this driver. I plugged the device into another computer also running Windows 7 (only home not pro) and it auto-detected right away. So I know for sure the device works.My computer though is most definitely missing the driver.

Similarly, I have on numerous occasion deleted files and done some cleaning-up (primarily 'My Documents') to no real success because they all come back after having attached my external.I do not perform a Back-up /or/ Sync anything. I simply connect my external via USB in order to locate a saved document already on the external from previous. This is all I do and at some point (not sure if it is after the next reboot or when exactly) but, all deleted docs reappear.

Seagate 1.5 TB 7200.11 Not Found On BIOS

Dec 2, 2011

It wasn't until my 1.5 TB Seagate 7200.11 storage HDD died last week that I found this enormous info on the web about a possible malfunction that rendered these 7200.11 drives useless. Also read about a firmware update released by seagate to fix this problem.

Now going back to last week, I was working with my pc and the drive worked as well as always, then I took it out from the case because I wanted to place it in a new build but the silly me somehow pushed the drive with my elbow while it was on the table and it fell down, performed a couple of spins and finally rested on the carpeted floor. It isn't recognized in 3 pcs so far, not even in the BIOS.

I've read in some forums that you can recover the stuff on the drive by making a usb or serial cable, connecting it to the little pins on the drive and running some commands on a terminal (i.e. Hyperterminal or Putty). This procedure is for 7200.11 malfunctioning drives.

I will try the method described above knowing my drive probably died from the fell and not from a bad factory firmware, but at this point I'm trying anything.

Consequently, I am unable to retrieve any files from the old HDD which is disastrous for my business. How to retrieve any number of files from the unrecognised HDD.

500gb HDD SeaGate Not Appearing On Laptop?

Jan 14, 2013

I was playing Mass Effect earlier. Got off because of school, so i put it to sleep. When i returned home, I tried getting on steam. The path wasn't found, so I didn't think anything of it. Rebooted. Still no path, so i go to my slave HDD, and surprise! It wasn't there for some reason. I've looked for it in disk management; no where to be found. Ran seatools, no luck. I had around 300 GiGs on there.I also turned off the laptop, took out the battery, and both master and slave drives for an hour. NOTHING.

EDIT: when i check disk management, it seems there is a drive of some sort on there, but it has no name.. It's blank. Nothing but *Status* has any information: "Healthy (OEM partition)." When i try to right click, the menu only has a "Help" tab.
