Hi i have just looked into need to upgrade your firmware please read this
Seagate products are run by firmware. Having the latest firmware can improve performance and or reliability of your product. Seagate recommends applying new firmware to enhance the performance and or reliability of your drive.
Like any software, firmware is improved over time and problems are also fixed. Every drive family has a couple of firmware releases during the life of the product. Please check in regularly to determine if new firmware is available for your drive.

As new firmware becomes available for other products we will make note of it here. At this time, we have firmware available for Barracuda 7200.12, DiamondMax 23, Barracuda LP, Barracuda 7200.11, Barracuda ES.2 (SATA) and DiamondMax 22 drive families.
If newer firmware is available for your drive, it will reflect the improvements we have engineered for the latest manufacturing. Firmware for legacy products will be the final release from manufacturing. Please note that Seagate does not offer details about specific firmware.

Until recently, firmware updates for typical desktop and laptop computers were difficult and somewhat risky. This situation, in part, was based on a lack of friendly firmware download tools and operating system limitations. This situation has improved and Seagate now offers firmware updates as a routine matter for the general support of your Seagate drive.

I need to upgrade my firmware for my seagrate hard - note.gif If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.
Please use the following links and instructions below to determine if firmware is available for your product. If firmware is available, we recommend that you make a back up before running the actual update and that you read and follow all instructions, cautions and warnings that may be displayed.

Follow these steps to determine if a firmware update is available for your drive:

Hard Disk errors


you won't be able to use the disk check, infact i encourage you not to do them, this is because the drive you listed is a Hybrid, meaning it has a SSD partition within that disk drive.. so the OS is loaded onto the SSD and the rest of the data is then put on the disk drive. i do recommend that you update the drivers in your machine, most you can either find in your pcs manufacturer, or a good website like http://www.driverscape.com.. check your "Device Manager Applet" and compare your driver versions to the website above. or maybe that disk drive has a new firmware update. or it's own software.

i hope this helps you in any way!

NOTE: Programs that free up disk space, or have automatic registry defrags, or defragging the drive in auto will damage your Hybrid drive.Hence this technology to forget about cleaning fo speed and tuning up windows.

Hard Disk Upgrade Can I upgrade or install a larger hard disk drive in my Viewer?

The P-5000 includes an internal 80GB hard drive which is specifically designed to work with this product. There are no hard drive upgrades available for this product. If you try to install another hard drive, it may damage or adversely affect the operation of the product. This type of damage or operational failure is not covered by the product's warranty.

Wish to install new hard drive in my Dell Dimension 9150


The BIOS can sometimes be a limiting factor when upgrading to a larger drive so I would check if you have a flash BIOS that can be upgraded to accommodate more memory or larger drives. The utility used for upgrading would have to come from Dell's website. 
To characterize your system in detail, I recommend using Belarc Advisor:

Try using your SEAGATE Hard Disk on another PC , if it works then you have one of these problems,
1. Your USB Port in your PC (Or Laptop) is broken and you have to get another one*
2. You have a software problem (Try reinstalling your OS or scan for viruses).
3. The USB Cable has a problem (get a new one).


(*) some technician can replace your USB port or fix it, or you can buy a "USB Hub"
