The drivers need to be installed on each computer because, the installation process copies certain DLL files onto your computer and may add some entries into the registry.
There are no programs that install drivers from one computer to another, there are just too many variables and the various devices that are installed in the computers vary between models and even in the same model computers.

Once you have setup and installed the drivers and the programs on your computer you can make a image of your hard disk and restore that image onto an existing or a new hard disk without having to re-installing Windows, the drivers and your programs again.
Symantec Ghost is one such program for this job.

Seagate backup plus is beeping and will not pull up on computer??


Troubleshooter: Seagate Manager does not see my Seagate FreeAgent drive Troubleshooting in case the Seagate Manager cannot detect the FreeAgent drive.
Sometimes, Seagate Manager (the software bundled with newer FreeAgent drives) does not see the drive.
This article focuses on drives that can be seen in Windows, but are not seen in the software.
If you are using Windows 8, please note that Seagate Manager is not supported in Windows 8, so you will need to use a different backup solution.

If the drive is not detected in Windows 7/Vista/XP, then use the external drive troubleshooters to try to resolve the non-detection issue.
After connecting the FreeAgent drive, please give it up to 1 minute to display in the middle of the main screen in Seagate Manager.
208575-1.jpg
If the drive does not display, open My Computer (Computer for Vista) and confirm the drive is listed there. The drive should be listed as "FreeAgent Drive". If you have formatted or renamed the drive, then it will show up with the name you provided.
If the drive does not display in My Computer (Computer for Vista), use the External Drive Troubleshooter to help resolve that issue before continuing.
If the drive is detected in Windows, check if the Seagate service is running.
  1. Right-click on the My Computer (Computer for Vista) icon.
  2. Choose Manage.
  3. In the Computer Management window, click Services and Applications.
  4. Open the Services area.

    208575-2.jpg
  5. Scroll down the Seagate Service (they are listed alphabetically).
  6. The Seagate service should display Started in the Status column.
    If it does not, right-click on the service and choose START.
  7. If the service reports as Disabled, enable it to start automatically.
    To do this, right-click on the service. A Status Type drop-down menu will appear. Click on the General tab. Select Automatic and click OK.
    208575-3.jpg
  8. Reboot the computer.
  9. If the service fails to start after you reboot with these settings, then check the logs of your Antivirus or Antispyware software to confirm they are not restricting the startup of this service, as some aggressive protection programs can prevent services from starting until you approve them. So, you may need to approve this program specifically in the Antivirus/Antispyware software. Please contact your anti-virus software support for help.
  10. If the service will not start or is working already, uninstall the software (for steps on uninstalling the software, see this article).
  11. Once the software is uninstalled, reboot the computer.
  12. Then reinstall the software by opening the InstallSeagateManager.EXE file on the FreeAgent drive. If you have removed the software from the drive, it can be downloaded from the download center.
  13. If the drive is still not seen by the computer, connect the drive to other USB ports on the computer.
    Some eSATA cards block the drive's identity and prevent it from working. Updates have been made to Seagate Manager and to some vendors' eSATA drivers to help this issue. See our eSATA tips article for details.
  14. If the drive still does not display after these steps, please contact Technical Support.
Check Required Windows Component Installations
1. Check to make sure you have the MSXML Parser 6.0 installed:
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "MSXML Parser 6.0"
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=993c0bcf-3bcf-4009-be21-27e85e1857b1&displaylang=en
2. Make sure Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 installation
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5".
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component. 3. Try the steps listed here.
4. Remove the Seagate folder from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data (XP) or C:\Program Data folders (Vista) and reboot.
5. Download and install the newest Windows Installer.
6. Download newest Seagate Manager from our Website and re-install a clean copy. Note: Do not do the update when the message pops up saying one is available.

I've got a Macbook pro Model A1278 works but dos'nt seen to reconise the internal hard drive, can load mac software on a USB drive but not to the internal drive does anyone know what happening?


Hi coolfix,

The most common cause of this problem is that the internal drive is broken. If you're able to open up Disk Utility on the computer, you can see if the internal drive is recognized and if its SMART status is "verified". If it's verified, the disk might still be ok, but there's no way to be sure except removing it and testing it in another machine.


If your disk is working, you might just need to reinstall the software from a DVD; hopefully you can obtain one. All you have to do is insert the disc and hold down the C key on your keyboard after you press the power button. Your computer will then boot from the disc and you can install the software or perform diagnostics.


If you have to replace the drive, It's pretty easy with some basic tools and a little technical know-how. Check out THIS guide on ifixit.com. (Make sure your replacement is the right size and uses a compatible interface--look for 2.5" SATA drives from Amazon or other sellers.)


Good luck! Feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

It connot be install on my computer because it is demanding i get the installation softwares


Hi,

It should have the software on the drive itself.

If you look in My Computer, can you see an additional drive listed? If not then one of the other drives may be using a letter that this drive needs (E and/or F).

If this is the case, you will need to reassign the drive (E and F) a different letter and then the drive will automatically install or at least detect as a drive that you can get the software from.

To do this, go to Control Panel, Admin Tools, Computer Management. Click on Disk Management and you should see the Drive there. Right Click on on whatever is using the E or F drive and click on "Change Drive Letter" and choose a different one.

Then go to your portable drive, Right Click on it and reassign to the letter you just changed from (E or F)

Hope that helps, pls rate me if this answers your question and let me know if need further assistance

I have windows Vista. What do I have to do to install the portable drive? The instructions say open it in "my computer" and double-click on the "click here to start" file, but when I open it there isn't a...


Please confirm that the drive is indeed plugged into the computer via a USB slot. If so, the installation process should be automatic via Plug n' Play.

When you plug in a removable drive, it generally appears as a new drive in My Computer. For instance, your system drive is C:\ while CD/DVD drives will generally be D:\. In that case, your portable hard-drive will probably be E:\ or a letter further down the alphabet. It doesn't hurt to try opening each drive listed in My Computer. Since you haven't used the portable hard-drive, it should be completely empty (no files or folders inside).

If you can't find it, perhaps security software is interfering. Try disabling any security software you might have installed then plugging in the drive. Afterward go to My Computer and follow the same method outlined above of opening each drive looking for one that is empty or has a few files in it that you've never seen before.

Let me know if I can help you further. However, as mentioned, Windows Vista should install the drive automatically. Afterward you simply have to find it in, "My Computer."

USB DRIVE NOT SEEN


If your usb drive is not seen, then its one of two problems, you have a network drive interfering or you have a device taking over the drive letter like a cd or hard drive.

To manually set it, start control panel. click on administrative tools. Then computer management. Finally, click on disk management. It will show all your attached drives. Right click on the drive and click Change drive letter and path. Remove the existing letter and add a new one. It should show up.

If that doesn't work, your usb drive is damaged or possibly the usb system.

Windows Startup Problem??? Please Help!


This is work for a computer reparer with 'real' tools (e.g. an external DVD drive).

The only thing you could try yourself is removing the harddisk, placing it as a second harddisk in another computer and cleaning it with a program like Malware Bytes Anti Malware.

Error Installing Utilites Software


. Connect your ML648B to your computer with Windows XP or later.

3. Press the POWER button from top of your ML648B, to change it to USB mode connection. You will also see USB on the screen of ML648B. (Wait for few seconds to a minute allowing your Windows computer to recognize and install necessary drivers for the device for first time as USB device.)
4. ML648B will now mount 2 drives, one as Tools (as CD-Drive) and second as Removable Disk (Drive) – under My Computer on your Windows Desktop.
5. Double click & open Tools, and run Setup.exe to start installing Video Conversion Software tool.
6. Select defaults options and finish the installation by clicking on Close or Finish.
7. If asked, click on Continue Anyway on Windows XP or Install this driver software anyway on Windows Vista.

Freeagent tools is not working


With your XP problem..
Goto My Computer and right click.
Select Manage
In the window that opens select Storage and then Disk Management.

Your drives will be there, but need to be mounted. Right clicking on the drive will give you your options etc.


Your Vista problem I will have ot contemplate, though it's probably a software compatability issue more then anything.

Try running the EXE file under XP compatability, or check the website for an updated version. Be sure to get the 64 bit or 32 bit version as required.
