SCSI Drivers are only an optional part.
This is not a problem with your driver floppies.

The problem is with the linux being preinstalled on the HD.

Linux uses many types of file-systems. Even if it was NTFS or FAT, it is most probable that windows xp cd won't be able to recognize it; because, it may use unsupported method of formatting.

What you have to do is;
1. Format the two HDs by either

  • Moving it to another windows or linux computer and fully formatting the Hard Disks using fat32 or NTFS (supported by windows). If it is a windows PC using for formatting, no problems. If it is a linux system, delete all partitions, and format the drive in FAT32 or NTFS and here, ONLY CREATE ONE FULL PARTITION COVERING ENTIRE SIZE OF DISK.
  • By a linux installation CD and here too, format the drive in FAT32 or NTFS and here, ONLY CREATE ONE FULL PARTITION COVERING ENTIRE SIZE OF DISK.
2. Install the windows xp in it, using the same booting from CD Porcess. Here, you may or may not choose to install the SCSI drivers ( the floppy you got by pressing F2 when it says to do so in the installation immediately). It is good not to install the SCSI drivers if it is not a necessity for you.

Now, you can create any number of partition, format, etc during win XP installation.

I have few 80GB Hdd Model # ST380020ACE IT DETECT IN BIOS BUT IT SHOW 0 MB SIZE IN BIOS AND EVEN I CANNOT RUN FDISK PROCESS PLEASE GUIDE ME IF YOU HAVE THE SOLUTIONS. Note : if i use this drive as slave...


Since you mentioned slave, I'm going to assume this is a IDE hard drive (with the 2" wide ribbon cable).
Check the sticker on the back of the hard drive for the correct position to place the jumper on. Often hard drives require different settings depending on whether they're the master, slave, or the only drive on that IDE cable.
Note: generally it's a bad idea to mix optical (CD/DVD) devices and hard drives on the same IDE cable.

I had windows xp running on it but then my computer went down.ive tried reinstalling windows sevral time with differrent disks but it keeps saying there a 14 error


Hi,

14 Error is related to the manual reboot required once the Drivers or operating system has been newly installed.

So after reinstalling the operating system, install all the require drivers for the hardware and reboot manually it will fix the issue.

I have window server 2003 OS and 500 GB free agent desktop USB hard disk is not showing in my computer. So how can i rectify it?


I just finished a Chat exchange with Seagate Tech support. MS Server OS's are not supported for FreeAgent devices.

It appears that whatever drivers exist in the XP install that recognize the USB device connection are not the same in the MS Server environment.

I plan to check the USB device drivers from both systems and see if the XP USB device drivers will work on Server 2003.

SEAGATE DRIVER ISSUE


It is a internal hard drive, which connects through IDE cable (the wide one), so you shouldn't be asked for drivers. If in any case you can't see this drive in your "My Computer" ("Computer" on Vista) it's probably because you have connected it wrong. Notice that the end of the IDE cable must be connected tou your main hard drive (where OS is instaled). If Seagate ST340015A is your main hard drive, than the end of the cable should be connected to it. If not, than on the same cable, about in the middle is another connection, you should use that one.

My external hard drive is unreadable


Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Windows xp drivers for seagate ST3160203U2-RK


Drivers are not needed for this Ext HDD.
If you go to your Computer Management>Storage Devices,you will have to assign a Drive letter for it to show in your "My Computer" as a External Hard Drive.
Also ensure that drive is set as "slave" and do not connect until computer is booted to Desktop.
All changes will take effect after reboot.
