    I guess your seagate is formatted for Mac. Easiest thing to do is search for hfs+ on windows. there is at least one app you can buy that will let you read and write to it on windows.
    The immediate next step I suggest you take after that is to buy a second disk and copy the seagate onto that via your windows box, so you have a backup as it would appear the only place your data lives is that drive?
