Question about Seagate (ST3250824AS) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Windows 2000 advanced Server does not support Seagate 250 GB Hard Drive.

I have Windows 2000 advanced server installed on 250 GB SATA Hard Drive. But it recognises only upto 160 GB. How do i enable it to recognise 250GB SATA Hard Drive? Is there any solution or is there any changes in windows registry to be made, so that that Hard Disk is recognised?

    I did consider this option, but Win2k server family doesn't support beyond 160GB. That is in my opinion. If U have a solution, pls post it.

I am inclined to think that this would be a problem with the jumper settings limiting the size of the drive.
I can't offer anything more than that, sorry. Hope it will help a bit.

I have window server 2003 OS and 500 GB free agent desktop USB hard disk is not showing in my computer. So how can i rectify it?


I just finished a Chat exchange with Seagate Tech support. MS Server OS's are not supported for FreeAgent devices.

It appears that whatever drivers exist in the XP install that recognize the USB device connection are not the same in the MS Server environment.

I plan to check the USB device drivers from both systems and see if the XP USB device drivers will work on Server 2003.

I'm finding a similar problem with an Imation (Freecom badged) RDX drive. On a SBS 2011 server, it just doesn't put in an appearance, not even showing in the BIOS. On a Win7 PC, it appears but hangs the PC.

The best solution so far for me is to connect a Sata->USB interface and plug the RDX sata cable into it, then plug in to a USB port. It then works.

I'm guessing there is a firmware problem with the drive, and I'm looking into that possibility.

Hope that helps.

Freeagent with server 2003 not working


Seems that Seagate did not release a version of software which could be used on a Windows Server 2003 platform. I checked their web site at the following link & didn't find any software supported on Windows Server 2003:
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=freeagent-downloads&vgnextoid=3723b5b59b7d5110VgnVCM100000f5ee0a0aRCRD

Sorry, but I can't help you with this one. Try contacting Seagat for this & see if they have a solution to your problem.
