I am using segate u series ST340810 hard disk. when I am formatting this hard disk this hard disk does not shows partition to format and shows messege of disk cannot access what should I do?


Hello Ravindr,

After connecting the Segate Hard Drive in your computer go to Control Panel. In Control Panel you will the option Administrative Tool. In Administrative Tool open the Computer Management and you will find the number of attached Hard Drive and the Partitions they have. If the Hard Drive you have attached is not showing the partition then there may some physical damage with the Hard Drive media. Please get your Hard Drive checked by Segate professionals and then replace the Hard Drive with new one.

Lacie 1tb only showing n 30g room


Hey there,
A hard drive, especially a new one, might need to be formatted before use to show the proper amount of data available for use. Sometimes a hard drive might malfunction and not show the proper amount of free space. formatting should also solve this problem, Before you go and format your hard drive understand that by formatting it you will lose all data that is stored on it, so if you have anything important, take it off first.
here is a detailed guide to reformatting your hard drive based on your operating system

Hope this helps!!

WD320GB hard drive not working


Are you using a double power USB cable, which normally comes with W/D hard drives?

Also if the light on hard drive blinks the drive is not getting enough power from the USB port.

All the best!
