Question about Seagate Central STCG3000100 3 TB External Network Hard Drive - Black
My Seagate Central 3TB will not power up and I would like to try recover the data. The drive will power up in an new external case, but Windows does to read the File structure. Is there a software or hardware solution to read the data stored on the drive?

Yes you can just take the hard drive out of the case, can use it with any other case, you can also just put it inside your computer and connect it to the sata cable :)

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.
