Rated 2 out of 5 by from Installation problems I bought this on Jan 27, 2014 but have not yet been able to install the associated Dashboard software. An error message keeps appearing. A search of the Seagate users forum shows that this problem has been experienced by many others over the last few years. After having tried various proposed solutions I am now going to call the UK help number on Monday. So far I am deeply unimpressed. Problems can arise in any hardware, but they should not be allowed to persist for years!

Other HDD say they use USB and therefore does not need external power. This doesn't say that, therefore does it need a separate power cable?
Asked by: Anonymous
