SOURCE: SEAGATE DRIVER ISSUE

It is a internal hard drive, which connects through IDE cable (the wide one), so you shouldn't be asked for drivers. If in any case you can't see this drive in your "My Computer" ("Computer" on Vista) it's probably because you have connected it wrong. Notice that the end of the IDE cable must be connected tou your main hard drive (where OS is instaled). If Seagate ST340015A is your main hard drive, than the end of the cable should be connected to it. If not, than on the same cable, about in the middle is another connection, you should use that one.

This is a solution I have used in the past and it has worked. It's a Seagate Recover utility for end users.

If the data is absolutley critical and very valuable, you can send it to Seagate and they are very good at recovery as well. It gets a little pricey at $800, but I too have had to use that as well for mission critical data I could not afford to lose.

If the laptop is also XP, the drive should be recognized without problems. Sometimes this may not happen if the disk is unusually partitioned (could happen if you manually dual-booted it with Linux, for example). Verify the enclosure is working properly and has enough power supplied to, and that it appears in Device Manager. If all this applies, the enclosure must be considered working and the problem might be in the partitioning or disk access.

In XP Pro, do Start > Run Command > DISKMGMT.MSC and press OK. See whether the disk appears (if it doesn't, it's the enclosure, or its drivers - or the disk was dying and is now dead, but that's not very likely), select the NTFS or FAT32 partition - ignore any others - right click and mount the unit as drive, say, G.

If it doesn't work but the partition is found, you may need a more powerful tool such as Paragon Partition Manager.

Unable to download the Seagate Central NAS 1D driver on my Windows Vista desktop....help?


I think you mean hard drive. NAS devices aren't meant to be plugged into computers. They're meant for networks. NAS means "Network Attached Storage". There should be a disc that comes along with it to set it up. If you don't have one, you can connect to it through a web browser to set it up, thats usually how its done. If you look at the devices in your network, you should find its name, and then you can type in its name in a browser. As an example, if its name is seagate-nas, then you type "seagate-nas\" (without the quotes, and with the '\') into your browser and it should come up

Need to install the hard drive from the Seagate Central into a computer to recover data.


Easier way if computer has USB ports, just use a USB convertor for IDE and Sata, (search for usb hard drive convertor) ( $10 or So) and you will be able to copy your files to the computer and to save to another hard drive or CD or DVD.

Seagate 3tb external hard drive gives beeping sound when powered on and not recognized by computer


There is a possibility that your hard drive has been physically damaged. I am saying this because unwanted sound and not being recognized are one of the symptoms of hard drive failure . So if the data is very important for you consult the data recovery specialist they will for sure help you out.
