Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do these come with SATA III cables to connect to your motherboard or do you have to purchase those separately?

    If the item is listed as being "Bare Drive" then it will NOT come with software, installation hardware (screws), or cables. If you need these items, be sure to order the "Retail Kit" version of the product.

  • Can I use this drive to replace my 500GB hard drive on 5yr old HP CQ5320F which has processor AMD Athlon II X2 240 ? Appreciate your inputs.

    According to HPs website, that computer has SATA connectors on it, so yes you should be able to use it. Couldn't see if it was SATAIII 6GB/s, but if it isn't you will get slower speeds while it's still usable. You will need software to clone your old drive onto the new one and make it bootable. If you have Windows XP on it you won't see more than 2TB, so have Windows Vista or higher.

  • I have a Seagate 2tb drive in a security system DVR. Supposedly all the interface software is on the motherboard. Can I upgrade to this 3tb drive?

    You will most likely need a seagate surveillance HD they are designed to run 24/7.
