SOURCE: Windows 98 driver for FreeAgent
If your PC is still running Win98 then it probably has a USB version 1.0 port. I don't think the Faster USB version 2.0 devices will work properly even if you have the correct driver - i.e. you have a hardware version conflict. Try Purchasing a USB version 2.0 Daughter board for the PC and plugging the Seagate drive into that iinstead.

See this link on the Seagate site:
Check your model number (should be something like ST3200823A-RK) against the list.

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.

Welcome to Fixya. As you describe the situation on the hard drive it seems to be that the hard drive is bad. Usually Plug and Play device will be automatically detected by a computer. Since the cables are working we can say that the drive has a problem. We wont be anble to recover any files unless it will be detected by the computer. The best thing to do with this one if the hard drive is faulty is to RMA the Hard drive if it still has warranty. You can use the link below to check the warranty.
Seagate Warranty Support and Returns Assistance
Seagate also have Data Recovery Service of their product if the hard drive is defective.
Unfortunately the disk is bad and if the file is important better to get intouch with Seagate since they are the expert on their products.
If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya
