Seagate spare drive for T - 61

I have a T - 61 bought in 2007 that is still running ok, it came with Vista and a small 7200 disk 100 MB, I want to replace the drive and install Win 7... I picked up a 500 MB SATA with a 16 MB 7200 RPM cache which said LAPTOP orange on the front, I got it in Best Buy... It should be fine, I hope.


I don't know what's your question, but yes that should work correctly in the T61. Either way, you might want to buy an inexpensive USB box (under $ 10) for the old disk and use it for backups, etc.

  • Spare drive for Inspiron 580 unit

    Support assist just told me that my hard drive is in danger of imminent failure. I would like to replace just the drive rather than the whole machine, but WD do not have this particular model - WD1001FAES-75W7AO any longer. Can someone tell me what would be a suitable substitute? The current drive is 1 TB, but I really don't need anything that big. 500 GB would be more than enough.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thank you


    Thanks to Mighty_Miro_WD and shesageordie for help and advice.

    Thought to go to a blue 500 GB but he bottled the end and bought a 1 TB black (i.e. replacement of the law). Sitting next to me now formatted. Later tonight will have a go at my old drive to the new cloning. Should be interesting!

    Thanks again, guys.

  • Seagate Hard Drive Firmware Update for the drive model: ST1000LM024

    I have (HP Pavilion dv6-7180se Entertainment Notebook PC). All the drivers for this model installed correctly except the drivers Frimware (Seagate hard drive Firmware Update) and (PLDS Optical Drive Firmware Update). the first one says "this hard drive model is not supported. Model = ST1000LM024"but my hard drive came from the factory, so what is the practice solution to install this driver? images .view of problems:

    This is to seagate:

    and for PLDS:

    Need help. Thank you.

    What mean of these messages, is that these "Firmware updates" do not apply to material in your specific computer. The two "Seagate Firmware Updates" are respectively for the hard drives of 250 GB / 320 GB and 500/750 GB hard drives. Your computer comes with a 1 TB hard drive, which is not subject to updates of the firmware. The "PLDS Optical Drive Update" is for another drive to CD/DVD only installed in your computer and also does not apply. There is no further action to take... Do not attempt to install these updates of firmware, because they do not apply to the hardware in your computer.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

  • Try adding the third hard drive for HP p6232p


    I'm pretty well a beginner, so I hope I can explain this well.

    I have a new HP p6232p desktop computer.  I am interested to install a new HDD SATA Seagate Barracuda 250 GB I have on-site as a spare.  (I already have OEM and a second hard drive installed and working correctly.)  I wonder if this computer allows a third hard drive.

    I placed the third disc in a pleasant and safe place and plugged the thin cord, red. This cord will go clear hard drive to a blue connector on the motherboard.  (There was also a yellow slot available.)  For the wide cord, I used a short adapter to change the pins to four pins.  It has been connected to one of the white gizmos, four holes (sorry, don't know what to call it).

    So, I pulled to the top of the computer and it does not automatically detect the new hard drive.  In the BIOS, there is no indication of it.  I couldn't not listed in Control Panel - Device Manager - hard drives.

    I bought the hard drive hoping to resurrect my old computer, which did not work.  As I can't return the drive to the store, I thought I would go ahead and try to put it to good use.  (If it does not work maybe I'll try to sell it on eBay or Craig's list).

    I wonder what I'm doing wrong?  Any thoughts (in easy to understand language, please ) would be most appreciated!

    If the bios does not show the port you plugged into with an attached device, then a port this bios is disabled or if you have equipment/wiring problems.  If you click on the bios ports and press ENTER, you should be able to see if it is enabled or disabled.  This is how works my bios.

    I don't want to scare you, but there are a lot of posts here on Seagate hard drives.

    Once the bios sees the port with your attached drive, then you should be good. If you use a new reader new and unformatted, then once you start, then go to disk management and look for your new device. You will need it initialized by right mouse clicking on your new device and then proceed from there.

  • No longer recognizes my Seagate Expansion drive after upgrade to El Capitan

    I upgraded this morning to El Capitan. Before that in so doing, I took care of my backup Crashplan was full then removed all of my external drives. I have three following readers:

    (1) Seagate 2 TB portable backup more (for important storage images/documents/videos so I can work between home and College)

    (2) Office of more than Seagate 3TO backup drive (for part of my Crashplan backup - I also backup to Crashplan central in the cloud)

    (3) Seagate to 5 Expansion Drive (to store old files, which are now copied on the 2 TB drive now, and I have not used this drive in age anyway)

    Note: nothing is really stored on my Mac hard drive, I keep almost free and save memory for the app

    As all the files in the disk of 5 TB are now on my 2 TB drive, and is in turn supported up to 3 TB drive using Crashplan, it's now redundant, I wanted to wait that I upgraded to El Capitan to format the disk of 5 TB, so it is compatible with Time Machine and make another backup and Crashplan.

    But after that I've upgraded to El Capitan, I plugged it all readers of my back in and adopted the new HD in Crashplan (as their FAQ instruct). Except that only 2 of the 3 discs are now recognized. The 2 TB and 3 TB drives appear fine, but the 5 TB drive appear not at all.

    What can I do to resolve this and get the drive to be recognized? Or just Apple cost me €160 with this upgrade?

    The drive appears in the disk utility?

  • Satellite A105-S4074 - which HARD drive for upgrade?

    I want to replace the Toshiba MK1234GSX (120 GB, 5400 RPM, SATA-150, 8 MB cache) hard drive on my A105-S4074 laptop with a bigger. My question is whether it is good to buy a Toshiba HDD no.

    Available on direct to my computer Toshiba laptop is only the following HARD disk:
    Toshiba 320 GB 2.5 "5400 RPM internal notebook hard drive - SATA"
    Capacity: 320 GB
    Interface: Serial ATA 150
    Speed: 5400 RPM
    Buffer size: 8 MB

    I wonder if such a 320 GB or 500 GB WD HARD or Momentus drive will work very well, for example
    -Western Digital 320 GB / 500 GB Scorpio blue SATAII 5400 RPM 2.5 IN. 8 MB in bulk / OEM hard drive (WD3200BEVT/WD5000BEVT
    -Seagate Momentus 5400.6 320/500 GB 5400 RPM / MIN SATA 3 GB/s 8 MB Cache 2.5 inch internal NB Hard Drive (ST9320325AS/ST9320325AS)

    Also, is it wise purchase a 7200 RPM HARD drive for this laptop? Would this work?

    Thank you


    First on interface SATA there is no capacity limit. This means that you can buy each HARD drive with SATA interface and it should work fine.

    It is also irrelevant if you buy a Toshiba, Western Digital, etc. There is not much difference between the models. It of your choice what you buy! ;)

    Theoretically, 7200 RPM HARD drive should work but don t forget that they produce more heat and need more battery power. 5400 RPM should be sufficient for most applications.

    Good bye

  • READ THIS | If your model 7200.11 Seagate Barracuda drive ST3500620AS has stopped working.

    HP finally released a firmware update for Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 drive (model affected ST3500620AS).

    If your computer has been freezing, or if your hard drive is stopped suddenly appears in the BIOS (error BIOSHD-2), this update of the firmware could unbrick your drive and give you access to your data again.

    Find it here: & cc = US & swItem = vc-681...

    I'll try it tonight on my brick drive and will let you know how it goes.

    see you soon,

    So, after a lot of grief, many hardships and moments of despair, I managed to do what any person HP support told me was impossible:

    I have my drive unbricked AND recovered ALL my data!

    How I did it, you might ask? First of all, let me tell you what happened before my happy time:

    I did research on the problem of Seagate firmware since December and read a lot about the issues people were having as well as the causes of these problems. Looks like what this firmware bug is cause one of two problems: the drive appears in the BIOS but shows 0 capacity, or it does not appear in the BIOS at all. It seems that readers OEM, we have all in our TouchSmarts have been affeced by the emission of the latter (the hard drive is no longer appear).  This is because the disc stuck in a mode (BSY error google and you'll find the question) which does not allow him to respond to the rear. It is, indeed, forever busy.

    As a result of this BSY error, I could not run the update of firmware HP newly posted for our Seagate drives. This is when the heartache began. After countless hours of research and digging, I came across the following forum, which became my Eldorado.

    If the link above is cleaned, simply search for the title of the publication: "The Solution for Seagate 7200.11 HDDs.

    All this works this fine gentleman of the Chile, South America. I bought the pieces, he suggested, read the post to see if changes have been made and decided to try what he proposed in a final effort to save my data to ditch. The revised post is here:

    Read this one for the step by step solution: & St = 100

    Basically the tutorial you guide through the steps necessary to "hack" your hard drive management board and 'talk to her directly' via Hyper Terminal (I ended up using a data cable USB for my old mobile phone Siemens, however). It took me two goes into this area and a lot of patience and careful reading, but my drive came back to life!

    Again, here's my details and questions for you in summary:


    -HP TouchSmart IQ506

    -Seagate Barracuda drive: 500 GB, ST3500620AS, model series 7200.11, HP version firmware HP24

    Description of the problem:

    -The drive just stopped working

    -Started my PC and the player has is no longer appear in the BIOS

    -Hard drive light was always on

    -Hard drive made some funny sounds clicking

    -The reader was not admissible for the new fix for the firmware (HP13 Rev A on February 6, 2009)

    I hope this helps someone out there. If you need assistance, please contact me and I'll do my best to help!

    Best regards


    EDIT: of course, after that I got access to the drive, I ran the new version of the firmware. You can get that here: & LC = on & DLC = in & CC = US & Product = 3752245 & os = 2100 & lang = in

  • Seagate external drive works is not on the new Macbook

    I have a Seagate external drive where I save copies of my pictures and videos from my Macbook Pro.  I just bought a new Macbook Air and Air reads the disc, but cannot be copied to it, it just says: it is read-only.  I'm confused, as I only used it on a Macbook so I know that it is formatted for Mac, plus I can still save using my Macbook Pro so I don't know why it won't work on my new Air.

    Any ideas? I would like to be able to continue the copy on this disc.  I back up my computers online so am not at the risk of losing data, just want to continue with my current system.

    Thank you all!

    You have a new drive to NTFS. You will have to repartition and reformat the disk in the order to the EU.

    Drive partition and format

    1. open utility disk from the Applications\utilitaires folder.

    2. after disk utility charges select the external hard drive (this is the entrance Out-bumpy with of the mfgr.) ID and size) in the list on the left. Click on the button/tab Partition in the disk window/toolbar utility main.

    3. in the title of the Volume entitled plan set the number of partitions in the menu drop-down one. Click the Options button, set the GUID partition scheme, and then click the OK button. Set the type of Mac OS extended (journaled) format. Click on the Apply/Erase button and wait until the process is complete.

    4. Select the volume you just created (it's the subentries under the entry for the road) in the list on the left. Click on the Erase tab in the main window of disk utility.

    5. set the type of format Mac OS extended (journaled). Click on the Security button, look for the button zero data and click OK to return to the window to erase it.

    6. click on the delete button. The formatting process can take up to several hours depending on the size of the disk.

    Steps 4 through 6 are optional, but should be used on a player that has never been formatted before, if the format type is not Mac OS extended, if the partition scheme has been changed, or if another (not OS X) operating system has been installed on the disk.

    The steps above may differ slightly depending on the version of OS X and disk utility.

  • Seagate hard drive

    Hi all. Recently, I took an internal hard drive of 500 GB ST3500320NS from my recorder and put it in my desktop computer. My PC detects it in the BIOS and in Device Manager but not in my computer. In my computer, only the hard disk with the Windows 7 operating system is displayed. Please notify. I tried the Seagate sea tools for diagnosis, but there is no change.

    If you format the drive then you delete the partition and destroy the video files.

    Display of files requires the operating system located on the hard drive.

    If your choices depend on what you plan to do with the hard drive.

    Best regards
