there is a firmware upgrade code for the U series 5 hard drives,,, go to
www.seagate.com/support/disc/utils/
u5_seaflash_eula.html
it will give the model numbers of the hard drives it should work with. If that is no help I would suggest you download their Seatools Disc Diagnostics

If the IDE controller you are using is not an ATA-100 controller you may need to use Seagates tools to manually set the hard drive to ATA-66.
