    its not working because its brand new and not configured for windows.
    ok go to the control panel then go to Administrative Tools then go to computer mangement then under the storage tab there should be disk mangement and ur new hard drive is waiting to be setup there :)

    You can also go to Seagate site, and download DiscWizard. Install it, and it will automatically install your HDD for you.

    kapre19, do you have windows on the computer already or is this a fresh install?
