Whatever your problem is it doesn't look like the hard drive to me based on what you've presented.
Looking at your specs I see you have an SSD. I assume you are then booting from the SSD not the Seagate HDD???

Maybe time to transfer the problem to "Performance & Maintenance".

I remember "stiction" being an issue on later drives. Never had an issue on the ST-225. It was small and slow by today's standards but I had that drive in service for many years without any issues.

I remember my first 8088+8087 PC (clone). I wrestled with the choice of a 10MB HDD vs a 20MB (M not G). I couldn't imagine needing 20MB but lashed out anyway and it was expensive! Seagate and WD were still competitors - I preferred WD then.

Hi All.

This is my first post, and correct me if i am wrong.

This is regarding why for 1 particular model, different users experience may be different from others.
For example on this thread.
Some users do have encountered problem in that particular HDD model,
But other users do not have.

There is one main key (Batch number) in most products.
From this key, Manufacturer will able to know the Assembly plant, and who suppliers to each item (component).

There are usually have many other locations for assembly of parts, in order to produce into a single product, eg. Hard Disk.

Manufacturer use some sort of coding, of which the common is "Batch" numbering.
From the batch, Manufacturer can identify which assembly plant & parts suppliers that cause the defect on the product, eg Hard Disk.

In short, if you look at the Hard disk, there is the Country made-in, which is the assembly plant, not parts suppliers.
Parts Suppliers can come from any country, not related to assembly plant location.

As i was Warranty Administrator and in the Technical dept, in Distributor.
Also went to the Manufacturer and visited the Assembly plant.

Thanks for reading,
Eric.

Good feedback Eric,
You are close to the manufacturing edge. But engineering specs are quite specific and assembly plant deficiencies reflect on the brand manufacturer.

Seagate external hard drive not accessible as a drive
I'm having trouble getting Windows 7 x86 RC Build 7100 to recognize my Seagate 3.5" External Hard Drive 500GB (Model ST305004EXA101-RK). It is connected through a USB 2.0 port on my Asus K8V SE Motherboard - running an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (2.0 GHz) and 1 GB of RAM. Currently, this hard drive...

Anyone get an email about Seagate class-action lawsuit
(from memory, I deleted the email) Seems some attorneys are suing Seagate since the user gets 8% LESS disc storage than they advertise on their specs. I'd love to be an attorney and be able to generate my own money-grab. Actually, I'd prefer not to be an attorney (or know any).
