Seagate is a company that manufactures external hard drives.

These hard drives can be used to house large files or even to backup an entire hard drive.

When your Seagate external hard drive is not working properly, you might ready to send it into the company for repair.

Before you send it away, you can troubleshoot the problem and potentially save yourself a lot of time and grief.

If there are breaks, replace the power cord.

Look over the power cable and make sure that it is plugged into the wall outlet in your home as well as plugged into the back of the hard drive.

Plug the power cable directly into the wall outlet or into a surge protector.

Do not plug the power cable into an extension cord.

I need the installation book to install it.

The power connector (Molex) has a red wire (one of four) - the data wire has a red stripe on one side - the red stripes go toward each other. If you have a 80 conductor data ribbonn cable, this is for "Cable Select" position in the shorting plug. If yours is 40 conductor, you are NOT cable select. The Master or '0' drive goes at the end of the cable while a slave or '1' drive attached to the plug close to the end plug. The other plug of course goes to the mother board. Look for a small '1' on the motherboard (red srtripe). Use either Cable Select (if appropriate) or Master (if appropriate) or Slave (if appropriate) when selecting the shorting pins on the back of the device.

For your info, the little connector you will find inside adjacent the Molex is called a Mini Molex.

The Master is where the device "C" should reside (and have your operating system). All other drive designations will be set by your BIOS.

If you need more help, go to and look up your drive for complete instructions. I think they have downloadable "tools' there to help you as well.

I hope this information helps you ... Thanks for your quesiton @

What are the correct jumper settings for my hard drive in an e-machine T-6520 with windows home ed. XP2005

cooperbill78 these are the jumper settings for a Seagate Barracuda ATA harddrive,

As you can see the jumper should be on Pins 7 and 8.

Make sure the harddrive is plugged into the END of the flat ribbon data cable.

Pin 1 goes toward the power connection.

Some flat ribbon data cable's connectors have a Locating Lug on one side. A square protrusion, or two ribs.
This lug lines up with a cutout in the circuit board on the back of the harddrive.

If no Locating Lug is present, and/or no Locating Notch in the harddrive, make sure Pin 1 is towards the power connection on the harddrive.

On one side of the flat ribbon data cable is a faint red stripe. (Sometimes hard to see)
This red stripe is on the same side as Pin 1.

When installing the flat ribbon data cable, ensure that the red stripe on the cable, faces the power connection on the harddrive.

For further questions please post in a Comment.

How to install an internal hard drive (1.5 tb) on a ppc g5

there are actually extra spaces for internal drives with the proper connectors for the ribbon cable and the power cable.
Just open the side of the G5, and double check your connectors prior to purchase to be sure you get the proper type. You can connect it to the available connectors on the existing ribbon and power cable... Then boot it up and simply do a disk utilities mount and format of your drive and you're good to go.

HDD Connection

Hi, you'll need one of these: (Data cable).
& one of these: (Power cable IDE 4-pin to SATA drive). Unless your current power supply has a SATA power connector.
Open your manual to the top of page 1-24. SATA data cables connect one way only. It does not take much to break the ( L ) shape end of either the data cable or the SATA power cable.
(All SATA drives are seen a master drives). When in your bios choose the correct drive under Boot > Boot order.
Need more info, just ask.

Good luck!

Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)

If your USB ports do not supply enough power (older computers) then the drive may fail to show up in My Computer.
The Seagate should have a special Y cable. There are two USB connectors on one end that must both plug into your computer - one for data and power - the other for power only. The other end of the cable has the mini USB which plugs into the Seagate.
