Try Seagate.com or newegg.com if you can't find one at a local computer store. You can try using a regular USB cable, the second usb on the original cable is in case your computer does not power the drive on a single usb connection.

Backup failed.Caused by Lost connection to drive


If you are sure that the USB cable is plugged in correctly, the cable is probably broken. Try replacing the USB cable with another or a new one.

Power for backup plus


Hello Allen,

We need further information to get you a replacement part number for your Seagate Backup Plus portable drives. Most of the newer ones run off the power from the USB cable. We will need the model number and power consumption in amps from the label on the unit. However, if the amps is 2 and the voltage is 12 volts then Amazon carries the power adapter, please see the link below. If tghere are further problems please return and post them here. Hope this helps.

I need to replace the dead hard drive in my dell dimension 4500s. Current dead drive is a 40GB Ultra ATA-100 (7200 RPM). Can someone tell me what I can upgrade to. I think I have the flat data cable so it...


You can replace the hard drive with a larger capacity hard drive. Best bet would be a 250GB .
Hard drive have come down in prices, you should be able to get a 250 GB. for less then $100.
Western Digital ansd Seagate are my preference.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Bigger hard drive


I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.

When i connect my seagate via usb nothing comes up on my pc, the light comes on on the external h/d but nothing pops up on the pc? help please i need precious photos on it. thanks


have you try connect your pen drive to the same usb port, is it working?
If Pendrive is working but not the Seagate hardisk. Most propably is your USB power is not enough to support the External Seagate hard disk, you need to supply more power to the Seagate hard disk by using USB Y cable(1 end connect to Seagate hardisk where the other end got 2 USB connector to connect to your PC).

Maxtor harddrive jumper setting


If you only have a single hard drive (or multiple hard drives for that matter), you should leave the jumper setting as "Cable Select" or CS.

See if this PDF matches your hard drive:
