Which operating system ?

If windows 7 click start richt click on computer select properties then device manager scroll to your disk (hard drive) expand right click select update drive software

Every Seagate drive requires a few firmware updates during its lifetime.

Seagate firmware must be up-to-date to ensure that the product will run reliably.


Changing the firmware on a Seagate product to a more updated version will improve the product's performance.


Check the Seagate website often for any update available for your drive.

The firmware can be changed with just a few clicks of your mouse on the Seagate Web page.


Click the "Start" button on the bottom-left corner of the screen.

In the window that pops up, click " My computer " or just "Computer."


Another window will show up with an icon for your hard drive.

Right-click the hard drive icon and press the "Properties" option.


This will tell you what model your hard drive is.

For example, your hard drive might be ST31500341AS.


Open your Web browser. Type in www.seagate.com and press "Enter" on the keyboard.

Wait for the webpage to load.


Enter the word "Firmware" and your model number in the search box on the upper right hand corner of the webpage and press "Enter" on the keyboard.


Using the example from Step 1, type in "Firmware ST31500341AS".

Click on the first link that is returned in the search results.


Locate the firmware update. Double-click the update.

Press the "Download Firmware Update Utility" link to start downloading.


Click yes on any pop-up boxes that you may see.

Open the new firmware file by double clicking the file that you downloaded in Complete the installation by accepting all of the default questions that are asked during the installation process.


Hope this helps

SOURCE: Seagate momentus 3 60gb problem

What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.

Hi I got a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop. The current HHD is the seagate momentus 5400.3 120g. This is now damaged. Can I use the Seagate Momentus 5400.6, 320 G, 5400 RPM SATA2. Will my laptop support the 320g...


Hello: I see no problem using a bigger harddrive in the unit,the only concern I think you might have is to purchase a hard drive caddy for the interface, Especially if the current hard drive is an IDE Interface, You can purchase a IDE to Sata Interface caddy, to support the drive Interface if it's an IDE format. You might want to check with Dell for compatibility first before purchasing the Sata Drive.
