Question about Seagate 3TB Expansion External Desktop USB 3.0 Hard Drive
Doesn't seem to work in Windows 7
Posted on May 29, 2013
New drives have to be readied for use. Try Start > Run (aka Search in Win 7) type dskmgmt.msc. Look for your drive there. It should be without a drive letter. Right clicking will give you the options of initializing, creating disc partitions, assigning logical drives, and formatting. If this seems a little daunting, a wizard should load. If not there is refresh icon on the toolbar if you select the drive. You may have to break down the 3TB down to a few partition because of the large size. Windows has a 2TB limit on MBR formatted HD's.

Needs a 64-bit operating system to access as one drive. Limit is 2TB for a 32-bit operating system.
