My system is brand new, and completely protected with Macaffe, other USB drives are working fine, I checked Seagate External drive in other Vista and XP laptops, it is not detected in computer, as well I checked with even Device Manager, and UVCView.x86, it is not even showing as a USB device Connected.

I havea seagate 500gb external hard disk, when i connect it wth the laptop the hard disk is not recognised on my laptop. i have windows xp professional installled in my laptop


Click on the link below and then click on the "Fixit" button. Windows has a patch for all external devices not recognized by PC's including HD's. This is especially an issue for those who've recently installed SP3. Best of luck with your problem.

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.
