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.

My seagate 250 GB hard disk is not being detected, no lights, pls help me!!


First, try plugging it in to another usb slot.

If it still does not work, plug in another device to the same usb slot. If it does not work also, there is a problem with your usb slot, and you can buy an extra usb slot.

or, if the other device works, try unplugging and taking out all the power supply for your desktop/laptop. Then, after 20 minutes, plug them back in and then plug in your hard drive, then turn on your computer.

Hope this helps, leave a comment on what happened ^_^

Seagate 250GB FreeAgent USB 2.0 Ext Hard Drive with laptop


Whether your computer is a laptop or desktop does not inherently decide if the drive will work or not. If it can't see the connection, there must be another problem with the drive. I would suggest reporting what you have done to try and make it work and anything you notice out of the ordinary (how lights on the drive are acting, noises the drive is making, alerts you see when you plug it into your laptop, etc). That will allow us to better help you find a solution to the problem.

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.
