Error using Seagate disc wizard(acronis), to partition the 320 gb disk: ST3320620AS.
The supplied, Seagate Diskwizard, does not recognize any Seagate disk installed.
Error- "System should have at least one Seagate or Maxtor device in order to function.:"
My previous DiscWizard for windows, as well as win XP, can see and initialize the disk. But I need to partition the disk for Linux and NTFS. Unable to do so. I am trying to do using the supplied seagate discwizard(acronis).
I have already tried uninstalling the previous version of DiscWizard, still does not work-
SeaTools s/w recognizes and passes the disk as OK, along with other Seagate disks on the m/c.
Tried contacting support, they keep e-mailing an auto-response –
“Your reply did not process correctly. Please REPLY to this message and enter the text between the specified lines. Your message has been attached”

I have the same problem with a ST3320620AS drive! When connected to my notebook in a USB case, it is not recognized by Diskwizard. I tried with two different USB cases on 2 different computers. I even downloaded re-installed Diskwizard just to make sure I had the latest version.
1. I was able to access the drive with Diskwizard by connecting directly to my Desktop's SATA connectors. I formatted it that way.
2. I then put drive back in USB case and hooked to notebook. Drive was available as 'Drive E' and I could read & write files to it with Win Explorer, but Diskwizard could not recognize it. (I did see it find 'Drive E' and scan it before giving me the no Seagate drive error message.)
3. Made a Diskwizard bootable CD - this too failed to recognize the drive.
So - what is next?? I want top transfer everything from my nearly full notebook drive to the new Seagate drive.

Had the same problem - disk wizard can't see a Seagate drive in the USB enclosure.
I was already staring to think about just using a bootable GNU-Linux CD, partitioning and
then just dd the raw partitions etc, but:
The solution is implied in the documentation - a Seagate drive must be in the system.
1. Make sure to install the bootable media creation feature.
2. Create a bootable disk wizard CD.
3. install current HD in USB enclosure.
4. Install new Seagate HD in system.
5. Boot from CD and clone away.
The cloning process is very flexible. Have fun!
