I believe he means device manager. Go to control panel, set the view to small icons, click device manager.

Have you tried looking on the Seagate website. There might be a solution or a method of contacting someone on there.

Doc, has a point. If it is used it might have been locked by the previous owner and he/she forgot before giving/selling it to you. If that is not the case, since you identified it as a Seagate Barracuda, I still think giving there website a look is a good idea.

I was wondering when someone was going to ask that question as it seems the hard drive was/is locked for a reason

I suspect the only way to get around that little inconvenience is to reformat the drive... thus erasing all the data.

"New" hard drives don't have passwords

My two cents

After reading the last couple posts here is what I Think, the problem is with the original HHD I bought about 2 month ago secondhand 500 gig, The second HHD I installed was pulled from one of my other computers and was working fine, I have lots of stuff stored on it and just wanted on my newer computer.
