Well, how are you trying to connect the two? Using RAID?

*snickers* we got a newbie here

Anyway, western digital's are VERY picky about jumper settings. I guess you have both drives on the same cable? If so, make sure the seagate is set to master(master with a slave if there's that option) and the WD to slave. If the WD is solo, you could just remove the jumper.
