These hard drives are fine. Just the drive didn't work with the systems in the 2 previous reviews is not a good reason for a low rating.
I installed this HD on a HP P6230y and come to find out my motherboard can't deal with the 3 TB, looks like I'm going to have to replace it with the 2 TB. I hope Crucial will note give me a hard time.
This product was recommended as an upgrade for my mac and it only reads 780gigs of 3tb. Kinda disappointing.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I am very sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with your HDD. It does sound like there is an issue with the drive that is causing the issues that you have experienced. At this time I would recommend contacting Seagate directly as they do offer support on their drives. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause, but they will be able to offer better assistance and help you out with a warranty if necessary.
I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?
Thanks for contacting us.
1. The new SSD only requires to be initialized prior to using or cloning. A guide on how to initialize can be found here.
2, I believe the computer will be unaware of the change if you use the EaseUS todo back up, however, I am not super familiar with this back up software and that might be more of a question for their forum.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
