Can't install Strat-O-Matic Baseball

I tried to install the Strat-O-Matic Baseball Game on my Seagate but I'm not able to. Worked fine when I put it on my 'C' drive. I play all my music off the Seagate and I've no problems.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 530 with Vista.

Do I need updated Seagate drivers? Will they need to be placed on other computers in order to run Strat off the Seagate?

This is a Vista thing that MS still has not fixed. However, when the search for driver page pops up click on manual specify location & point it to, (c:\windows\system32 & check the search subfolders), checkbox. Can't say if this will work for you or not. Some it does. Vista is a devil in a blue dress!

Try this:

1. Turn off the power supply to the hard drive.
2. Turn off your PC/laptop.
3. Connect the hard drive to the PC/laptop.
4. Turn on both devices.

It worked with mine.


You could also try installing Seagate Manager which can check for errors on the drive.

Problem getting CPU to recognize Seagate


It is with the Free Agent, as I also have one. What I found on mine was that the interface electronics in the bottom run too hot and start to fail in various ways. If I unplugged the power supply for an hour, then the drive would work for a while. So I put it on it's side and directed a small fan at the bottom and now it works for weeks at a time. So it's a thermal problem with the interface electronics. I've heard that some folk just bought a different housing and put the drive into it.

Hope that helps...
