\015\012How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?
\015\012
\015\012 It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.

For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:
\015\012
If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.

    \015\012For Seagate SCSI drives:
    Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.
    \015\012
    \015\012For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
    Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.
    \015\012
    \015\012SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.
    \015\012
    \015\012If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.
