It is a raid driver that you need. older computers do not come ready for sata, and if you are installing xp, xp does not provide generic ones. you will have to find the drivers for your particular computer

I've never heard of downloading a driver for a internal hard drive. What I do know is that you have to make sure that the jumper is on the correct connections. example if your main harddrive is a master then you should put the jumper on the two pins that read slave. If you have a sata harddrive then you would just have to connect the data cable and the power cable without doing any jumper settings. well hope this helps.

Installed 1T seagate hard drive as an internal backup but copmuter ( Windows 7) does not recognize. what should I do?


I presume you set up this hard drive as the second hard drive. You can do these:
1. Disk Management (check if it is readable):
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management (please run as administrator; right click it), Disk Management. Is this hard drive info exist in this screen? If it is, then the hard drive is not bad.

2. If necessary, test and fix it using Norton Utilities (download and run it):

Do i need a driver for this HD?


For external hard drives you will not need to download or install a driver.

When you plug the hard drive in all the required drivers will be installed automatically the same as if you had plugged in a USB pen drive.

It sounds like you're not concerned about the data on the drive, just the drive itself.
If that is the case, the drive will still be under warranty. Most seagate drives have a 3-5 year warranty.
Take the drive back to where you purchased it and they can get it replaced for you. Alternatively you can send it to seagate direct, however there may be a minor courier fee.
