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.

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.

Poweredge 1800 server


Hey,

I looked over the spesifications for the poweredge 1800 servers, go ahead, it will work perfectly but there is one problem in the windows XP setup, you will need to insert / load SCSI or SATA drivers for the hard drive With a floppy disk, or if you don't have a floppy drive your going to need to create a custom windows xp setup cd and add the drivers into it so it can start the SCSI or SATA hard drive and finish the install. without the drivers it might not find the hard drive.

Aside from that I don't see any other problems. You should be able to get the drivers, and everything ese from dell site
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/

Actually I looked over the dell downloads, I see only windows 2000 on the list with windows server 2003, and 2008 and linux distributions.

This could be a 2nd problem, drivers might not be avaialble, or work with xp, but we might be able to get it to work.


So two problems, SCSI or SATA drivers in windows xp / windows 2000 setup

2nd problem is in windows xp drivers, you could try windows 2003's drivers and 2000's and see if they work, if not, then we would have to look for drivers ourselfs from the internet.

So xp might cause headache but we might get it working, windows 2000 seems to be supported perfectly.

Let me know how the project goes
Thanks,
Ekse
