Seagate does not supply software drivers for SATA, ATA or SCSI hard drives. Hard drives do not require specific device drivers. However, separate software drivers are normally required for third party PCI cards or for a motherboard’s embedded hard disk interface. These are the components that manage the transfer of information between the operating system and the hard drive. If you are trying to obtain updated controller or motherboard device drivers, you will need to contact the respective motherboard, system, or controller manufacturer.
Some older Maxtor-branded drives have been packaged with ATA or SATA PCI controller cards that do require additional drivers within Windows. To obtain replacement or updated drivers for the Maxtor (Promise) ATA or SATA PCI card please visit the Support Downloads Page
For information on where to obtain Ultra ATA or UDMA drivers for your system or motherboard please contact the manufacturer.
