Question about Seagate FreeAgent Computers & Internet
Powers up and lights on but do not see on my computer
Posted by Anonymous on
It varies depending on the operating system. You can create a Linux mint DVD and boot that without installing. It will take a moment as it is reading the OS from the DVD then see if you can see it, if so it is OK, if not something is bad or set wrong in the USB hardware system.

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.

SOURCE: seagate freeagent drive
The seagate freeagent should be reconigized by windows. The question is are you adding an additional partition or do you want to create a brand new partion. I'm assuming you want to add.
You can add more space to existing primary partitions and logical drives by extending them into adjacent, contiguous unallocated space on the same disk. To extend a basic volume, it must be formatted with the NTFS ile system. You can extend a logical drive within contiguous free space in the extended partition that contains it. If you extend a logical drive beyond the free space available in the extended partition, the extended partition grows to contain the logical drive as long as the extended partition is followed by contiguous unallocated space.
To extend a basic volume
Make note of the number of the basic volume you want to extend.
Selects the basic volume, n, you want to extend into contiguous, empty space on the same disk.
You cannot extend the current system or boot partitions.
size=n The amount of space, in megabytes (MB), to add to the current partition. If you do not specify a size, the disk is extended to take up all of the next contiguous unallocated space.
Hope this helps!
