Re: seagate 300gb hardrive
Hey there Haylaym, the info provided is a little scant on detail. I am assuming it is an external drive, and that you are connecting to a computer via usb port. Als I am assuming you are using windows Xp os. I would suggest you follow these steps 1/ ensure the usb port is working by trying another device to check it's connection. 2/ Open your external drive and check to ensure all connections are made properly. 3/ Install the harddrive internally as a slave or secondary drive, remembering to change setup configuration. 4/ You can try it on another computer. After that it should be solved or confirmed to be a dead drive. Good Luck.

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.
If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.
I had a similar problem a month ago.
Go to the Seagate site(They own Maxtor now)
Click on the Customer Service and support link, then the warranty link.
Supply the serial number and they'll give you the warranty info.
I got an RMA number from the site, and received my (Refurbished) drive in about 10 days. They supplied a box to return the original drive, and I apid the postage.
A very quick, easy and satisfactory exchange.
Hi, you may want to try connecting it by USB if you're currently using firewire or the other way around and see if it works. If this fails, you are probably better off using diagnostics by Seagate @ http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=7f4e19e0babfd010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD&locale=en-US#.
Try to use the Troubleshooting or FAQ or if you feel comfortable using their utilities, download SeaTools.
Hope this be of help to you. Good luck.
Seagte purchased Maxtor in 2006. They kept the group that supported these products intact. Check Seagate's support site for specific information and/or contact Seagate's support group. They should be able to help you. The website is: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/
As a last resort, you can get a free replacement from Seagate via their warranty repair group. They track via serial numbers, so no receipts should be needed.
Here is the link to the Seagate's utility tools:
The links that you are looking for are DiscWizard and SeaTools.
