First, extract all data that you have on the hard-drive, while you still can.

Seagate's web-site suggests that you first download and run Seagate's "Drive Fitness Tool", which exercises the disk-drive, and produces a "fitness" report. If it fails, then delete all your "private" files, and either take the drive back to the retail location where you bought it, or get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) from Seagate, to get permission from Seagate to return the drive to them, for them to analyze the disk, and probably replace it.

When computer boots up I get this error code A disk read error occured code 0F00:0666


A bad hard drive or the boot sector (the map of the hard drive contents) has an error.

You have two choices. If you run regular backups you can do a full restore including the boot sector, if not, you'd have to format the hard drive and lose your data. Then reinstall Windows and start from scratch.

The other option that loses your data, as well, is replacing the hard drive if it's defective.

Fujitsu siemens an unexpected I/O error has occured


Hello olamideidowu,

Here is a way to find out what the message means. Look for entries in the system event log that happened on the same day your error message happened.

*Using the Event Viewer:

•Click the Start button on lower left corner of the screen

•Select 'Run' (on Windows XP) or Type 'Run' and press the Enter key (on Windows Vista)

•Type 'Eventvwr' (in the 'Run' box) and click OK.

•(On Windows Vista) open the Windows Logs folder in the left pane

•Select the 'System' log in the left pane

•Look at the system events that happened on the same day as the I/O error. One (or more) of those events should contain the 'unexpected I/O error' message.

•Get the Event ID and look up what it means on the Microsoft Events and Errors Message Center: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/ee/ee_advanced.aspx

Also, the 'Message Level' of the event shows as Information, Warning, Error or Critical. Looking at the message level can help determine how serious the event may be. Events that have Error or Critical message levels can indicate a problem on the system.

Have a great day,

Seagate freeagentGo does not work with windows server 2003


Symptoms The problem I encountered after connecting the drive to the eSATA card was the following error in the Windows System event log:
Source: Disk
Event ID: 7
Description: The device, DeviceHarddisk2, has a bad block.
At first I thought this indicated a bad disk. But eventually I saw apattern: the bad block error only occurred if the drive had enteredits "sleep" state, i.e. had spun down. By default, this happens after15 minutes. If I accessed the drive in Windows explorer after it hadspun down, in the few seconds that it took it to spin back up, Windowswould get impatient and report a bad block error. Note that the "sleep"mode I'm referring to is an internal feature of the Seagate drive--itis not under the control of Windows Power Options in the Control Panel.
If I attached the Seagate drive via a USB cable, let it spin down, and then accessed it, I did not get a bad block error.
Another symptom, one that I did not at first associate with theFreeAgent disk, was the following message in the Application event log:
Source: VSS
Event ID: 12289
Description: Volume ShadowCopy Service error: Unexpected errorDeviceIoControl(\?Volume{ba849e07-88fb-11d9-9c6f-806d6172696f} -0000017C,0x0053c020,00039B48,0,00038B40,4096,[0]). hr = 0x80070017.
This error occurred when I started an ntbackup job. Apparentlyduring Volume Shadow Services initialization, it couldn't immediatelyaccess to the Seagate drive and so logged this error. A bad block errorwas also logged at exactly the same time.
CauseMy speculation is that Windows knows that USB drives may spin down, andit will wait for them to become accessible. However, because an eSATAdrive runs as a BIOS-attached drive (similar to a SCSI drive), Windowstreats it as an internal drive and expects it to be "on" at all times.
SolutionThe solution is to attach the drive to a Windows XP or Vista machine,install the FreeAgent Tools software, go to Utilities, and set theDrive Sleep Interval to Never. Then move the drive back to the server.The Sleep Interval setting is maintained even though the drive ispowered down when moving it to another machine. Once I did this, boththe bad block and the VSS errors stopped.
ConclusionIt's obviously a pain to have to install a 142MB software package justto change the Sleep Interval, but Seagate Support said there is noother way. Too bad they don't make a simple command-line utility forupdating the drive settings. (The software has lots of slickbackup/restore features, integration with Internet drive access,etc.--all kinds of things that I don't need in this environment.) Itried installing the FreeAgent software under Windows Server 2003, butthe installation failed with a message that it only runs under Windows2000, XP, or Vista. Hence the solution of temporarily installing thesoftware on a desktop machine.
I wonder if others have had similar problems with eSATA drives thatlike to go to sleep? Eventually Windows may need to add an option totreat eSATA drives like it treats USB drives. Considering that thisdrive is only used once a day during backups, it would be nice if sleepmode worked without causing errors. In the meantime, I'll hope thatkeeping the drive out of sleep mode resolves the "bad block" errors.

FREEAGENT 250 GB AND USB2 NOT CONNECTING


Most of the time if you get an event 51 error you will need to reinstall drivers associated with that device to fix it. I would delete the device from device manager, uninstall any software that you installed for it, then restart your computer and reinstall the software. I would do this for both the card and the drive. I would also run Windows update to see if it finds any other drivers that you do not have installed. If that does not work it is possible that the card and drive might not work properly together. The only other thing I can suggest trying is reinstalling windows
