Need Manual or Instructions for Seagate Portable Hard Drive

Hi,

I just bought a used Seagate 40 GB External Harddrive. The product part number is 9Y1682-540 and the serial number is 3KW5XT8Y.

It connects to my desktop tower with USB port, etc. I'm sure I can hook up the hardware..

Is there anyplace I can find informaiton on the product? .... a manual or instruction sheet? I'm not extremely computer savvy regarding new things such as this.

Kind regards and thank-you in advance,

Tim

Your External Drive should be plug and play enable since it is a USB Drive.

Connect the appropriate cables to the External Drive and from the External Drive to the Computer while the computer is fully booted.

The driver for the Drive is loaded else you will be promted that the system have found a new device, if that is the case, put the CD-ROM that came drive and follow the instruction to complete the driver installation.

Open my computer icon on your desktop and you see the external drive.

Just got a seagate free agent go 640gb and it didn't come with a manual or cd. loads on the computer fine but no icon or way to access it.


No external hdd has a cd or a manual, cause their is none required for it. It is as simple as using a flash drive. You need to go into My Computer (if using XP ) or Computer Window ( if using Vista or 7 ) and when you connect the Seagate to the computer you will be able to see an option poping up under removable storage devices. If it does not come up then return the product, its bad.

Maxtor 3200


Seagate troubleshooting Error Code 10, states that drive has failed. (Seagate bought out Maxtor)

Before you resign yourself to everything is lost on this harddrive, how about trying one more thing?

How about putting the harddrive inside in a new external enclosure, and see if it works? I suggest that perhaps the external enclosure it's in, is bad.
The harddrive inside is a 3.5 inch harddrive. Same width as used by a desktop computer. It is a Sata harddrive.

Here's an example of a 3.5 inch Sata, external enclosure,
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3901268&CatId=2780
Just pop the external enclosure open that holds it now, take it out, and install it into an external enclosure like the example above. Plug in the USB cable.

Don't know if this applies to your particular Maxtor Personal Storage 3200, but when I went to search for the type of harddrive it uses just now, I ran into thsi, and thought I would pass it along. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/personal_storage/ps3200-sw)

Maxtor External Harddrive


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.
