Not able to use my new Seagate Barracuda 3TB


you cannot use more than 2TB of volume in WIN XP. As it does not support GPT initialisation, without it you cannot use the hardrive. More information can be found on this link. support microsoft com

hi..there...

why your lenovo H430 Desktop cannot detect your internal Hard Drive Seagate 3 TB ..because your Lenovo only support maximum 2TB Internal Hard Drive..

so the best thing to solve your problem is replace your hard drive and use only maximum 2 TB for your internal hard drive..

that's will make your lenovo works again

Seagate's DiscWizard, Extended Capacity Manager didn't recognize a hard disc with MBR partition style larger than 2TB when trying to maximize the capacity of the 3TB Seagate ST32000641AS drive...


Seagate Extended Capacity Manager

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager lets your operating system support large size discs with MBR partition style, so then you are able to use the space beyond 2 TB: this free space will be recognized as a separate disc, and will be accessible by your operating systems and applications as if it was a regular physical hard disc.

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager wizard will display all hard discs larger than 2 TB (unallocated or with MBR partition style). You can see, which disc space is recognized and allocated by Windows - this space is called Native Capacity in the wizard.

The space beyond 2 TB is displayed as Extended Capacity Zone. You can enable Extended Capacity Discs, and once it is done, this space will be visible by the operating system and ready for disc management operations.

Click Allocate space to see the possible disc space allocation in the next step.

After clicking Apply changes now button, the Extended Capacity Discs will be emulated on your physical disc. In case your physical disc is larger than 4 TB and the host operating system does not support a GPT partition layout, there will be several Extended Capacity Discs.

Note these Extended Capacity Discs are not bootable, and most properties will be the same as a physical disc's.

After allocating the space, you may temporary switch off Extended Capacity Discs by clicking the corresponding option. This will make Extended Capacity Discs invisible for Windows Disc Management tools, though the disc space will remain allocated.

To disable Extended Capacity Discs, click Remove partitions from Extended Capacity Zone and then click Apply changes now button in the next step: these discs will be removed from your system, and as a result - the disc space beyond 2 TB will become inaccessible

I have the exact same drive. If off-the-shelf cables are not working (which is odd) I would suggest buying a USB 3.0 extender. This will extend it about 3 feet. You can purchase them for <$5 online! Let me know if this helped out any.

I have dropped a Seagate goflex desk 2TB hard drive and when I power it, it makes a beeping sound, like a siren.


hello vyseman15,
hard disc drives need to be handled carefully, they can only handle a limited rough usage. especially dropping while it is working is very dangerous, in most cases the head will "scratch" (damage) the discs surface which make the device afterwards useless.
sorry to say there is nearly no chance to make it work again. there are some companies who can rescue some of the data on it, but they are expensive anyway.
regards
