Seagate barracuda 3TB HDD - Windows 7 64bit - Not detected? Tags: Hard Drives Windows 7 Seagate Storage Last response: January 24, 2013 4:58 PM in Storage Share Kazzier January 24, 2013 2:44:30 PM Good day, (Please kind in mind my knowledge on this topic is quite minimal) I purchased a Seagate barracuda 3TB HDD off Ebay with the intentions of using it as extra storage only (not for windows). However Windows 7 does not pick up the Hard drive even in disk manager. The first time I entered disk manager the drive present there but swiftly disappeared. Also the drive itself makes a sound somewhat like a squeaky gate when first connected so I am slightly fearful that the drive may have been damaged in transport. Is it likey that I have to update my BIOS (vastly outdated).

Thus pretty much confirming my fears that the item is in fact faulty I can only assume that the transportation has made some of the hardware come loose inside or similar. Such a shame.
