Question about Seagate U6 (ST340810A) 40 GB Hard Drive
After you open it, it will NEVER work again, unless you open it in a "clean-room" (a room with highly-filtered air that has NO dust in it).
Anyway, look for the small screws, and buy a screwdriver with a special point that fits into the head of each screw. Unscrew it, and the cover will come off.

There will be at least one screw under a label, usually in the center. I have opened one that I still use today. You won't find any servicible parts inside and the parts are very delicate.

The firmware for any electronics device tells the hardware how to properly function.
Most devices rarely need a firmware upgrade, however, computer products such as a Seagate hard drive need to have the firmware updated periodically due to computers constantly going through operating system upgrades.
Luckily, you can update your Seagate hard drive firmware with an Internet connection and a few clicks of your mouse.
Connect your Seagate hard drive to your computer if the hard drive is external.
Launch your Internet browser and navigate to the Seagate.com website.
When the site loads click the "Downloads" button.
Click on the hard drive listing you currently own.
This brings up all of the most current downloads for your Seagate hard drive.
The listings of the hard drives have the image, so match your hard drive to the image online if you are not sure what drive you have.
The user manual states what hard drive you currently own also.
If you don't have your owners manual, open "My Computer" (or "Computer") and right-click the hard drive icon and select "Properties."
Here the computer states exactly what model of hard drive you have.
Click the Firmware update and click the "Download" button to launch the download.
Click-and-drag the file into the hard drive if you are using an external hard drive
(open "My Computer," then double-click the removable hard drive icon).
Open the downloaded file and follow the prompts to install the updated firmware.
Hope this helps

Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.
Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.
Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.
Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.
Replace the opened cover.
Replace the battery and power cord.
Turn on the computer.
The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.
Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.
hope this helps
