My G3 Mac doesn´t access to my External Seagate Cheetah 9Gb

When I turn on the Scsi APS external drive (a Seagate Cheetah 9Gb inside), light red appears among beeps, after two o three minutes it stops . Then I turn on my G3 and the driver APS is recognized but the display when the presence of the other drives never appears and my APS begins to flash the led and the beeps begins again twice each four or five seconds and finally I can´t access it.
Thank you.

SOURCE: PC Cannot recognize External Seagate Drive

This is a common problem. IF the external was unplugged during a operations, there is a possibility of hard drive corruption. Also, you mentioned it was on a MAC. If your buddy formatted the drive for the MAC (Which would be HSF) so PC won't see the filesystem anymore until you reformat for PC (FAT or NTFS). I understand you might not was to reformat, but that is my recommended answer to this issue. There is one other choice though. Try googling Diskwarrior. This program is pretty good at repairing corrupted harddrives and it pretty good at detecting filesystems. If disk warrior doesn't do the trick, I would go with reformating.

SOURCE: driver for scsi disk seagate ST318406LW

Here you go:

http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/


and read it also it's important for you:


As has been remarked before, "SCSI is a collection of optionally
implemented -- or optionally misimplemented -- features", and the
other classic remark, "None of the S's in SCSI are Standard".

There is typically no requirement for what some platforms might call
a low-level format for SCSI disk devices accessed by OpenVMS.

The volume-level format -- the file structure -- is established with
the OpenVMS INITIALIZE command.

There is apparently a configuration-level or hardware-level SCSI
incompatibility here. That the console can identify the device
means that some simple operations have succeeded -- that the console
has identified the device does not imply that the device will operate,
nor that the device will operate under any particular I/O load.

Please contact your hardware support vendor or storage vendor for
assistance with the requisite integration and testing, and please
also see the OpenVMS FAQ for related discussions of third-party
hardware issues, requirements, testing, and support considerations.

The effort involved in qualification of peripheral devices is large,
and involves detecting, isolating and resolving obvious functional
incompatibilities and obvious errors within the host, controller
or drive interfaces, as well as more subtle considerations such
as ensuring that the particular device thermal-cooling and other
environmental requirements are met. Acquisition of a supported
device is often far cheaper than performing a local qualification,
and particularly when -- such as is the case here -- errors are
encountered. Additionally, if operational problems should arise,
then the supported configurations will typically see the necessary
remediation work.

The device support effort involved can range from trivially simple
to what is effectively cost-prohibitive, and the particular results
and which extreme might be involved are not entirely clear at the
onset of the testing and support effort. Put another way, there
is definite value in the supported device configurations.

Additionall, your OpenVMS version is outdated, and in need of an
upgrade. While the OpenVMS Wizard is entirely unfamiliar with the
rated capacity of this Seagate device, the Wizard will also call
your attention to the maximum disk capacity and storage-ECO-related
information in the OpenVMS FAQ. If you cannot upgrade from V7.1-2,
please make certain that you have all current ECO kits applied.

The OpenVMS Wizard is not in a position to provide device qualification
and device integration assistance at no cost -- having been involved
in this, this effort can involve weeks or months of technical effort;
far beyond what the OpenVMS Wizard can offer. Again, please contact
your hardware support or storage vendor for this assistance, or please
then expect to become of a subject matter expert for SCSI.

SOURCE: How do I format a Seagate 500 to work on a Mac?

I bought one of the Seagate FreeAgent 500 devices yesterday and followed the instructions on the back of the box: plug it in; let the Mac recognize it; go to the Disk Utility function (found in Applications > Utilities); select the Erase tab and check the box to re-format the FreeAgent to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and choose a name for it.  Then proceed with the re-formatting.  It took only a few minutes but as soon as it was done, Time Machine (Leopard) kicked in and asked if I wanted it as my backup drive.  I said yes, and away it went.  Hope this helps.  By NewbieMacUserSept2007

How do I get everything from my external hard drive onto my Mac and then completely clear the ehd?


The problem you really face is a lack of space on the Mac. The movement of files from the Seagate to the Mac is easy. Plug in the drive and open it, then select the items you want to transfer from the Seagate and drag them to the location on the Mac where you want to store them. Job Done. When the files have all been transferred you just need to "Format" the external drive.

My system doesn;t boot up and I don't have the CD to boot up my system. When I brought the powerbook G3 it didn't with the CD. Please where can I get it from? I am in Ghana now. Thanks Ishmael


If you have another Macintosh that is working correctly, you can copy the contents of that hard-drive, including the Operating System onto an external hard drive.
To do this, install Carbon Copy Cloner on the working machine and plug in an external hard-drive. Then run Carbon copy cloner and make the source the computer's hard drive most likely named "Macintosh HD". Then choose to have your external hard drive be the drive where all of the data is copied. Then run the program and let it copy all of the files.
Once this is done, remove the external drive from the computer and plug it into your G3. Turn on your G3 while holding the Option (alt) key and then double click on the hard-drive image that is named whatever your external hard-drive is named.
Once your system boots up from the external hard drive, run Carbon Copy Cloner again and repeat the process again except have the source be your external drive and have the internal drive in your G3 be the disk that has all the data copied to it. Once this is done, turn off your computer, remove the external drive, and then boot up your computer again.
You will have an exact clone of the computer that you copied the data from and will just simply need to adjust the account settings as such as you see fit.

The external drive process can be skipped if you have a firewire cable. Simply connect the firewire cable to both computers and when you turn on your G3, hold the "T" key. This will turn your G3 into an external hard drive and you just have to carbon copy the files straight to your computer's internal hard drive.
If you do not have access to another computer mac computer, then you will need to go to the Apple Store and see if the Genius Bar can install the default operating system that your computer came with.
If for some odd reason you have the contents of an Mac OS install disc copied onto a flash drive or external hard drive, you can boot from that and use it in place of a disc.

You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

I can't move ANYTHING onto the hard drive


In order to properly access the full capacity of an ATA interface hard drive or partition larger than 137GB and properly support 48-bit logical block addressing, Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 are required. This issue does not affect SCSI hard drives. Your os x10.3 is not compatible:)
