Is that a question? There are no plugs in a modem, unless you are using a very old external modem. You need to be more specific.

Try unplugging the drive (if it has a power cable then that is all that you need to unplug). Then restart your computer. When your computer begins to start back up, plug the power into the drive again.
If this doesn't work:
  1. Click Start
  2. Right click on my computer
  3. Click properties
  4. Go to Device Manager (depending on version of Windows it will either be on the left or in a tab).
  5. Expand the different sections and look for one with a warning sign (likely yellow). If that seems to be your drive then right click on it and click uninstall.
  6. Then remove the drive completely and restart your computer.
  7. Once your computer has completely turned on and you are looking at your desktop, plug in the drive.
Best Wishes!

I dont know how to summarize the problem.


It sounds like the hard drive is bad. You might be able to run chkdsk (or whatevers its called; check disk) to scan/fix errors if possible.

A different issue but:

Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Seagate 1.5 TB Free Agent will not turn off


Definitely, You must turn off the External Hard drive when it is not in use, because as it is external and it comes with an external power supply,the power supply will not cut-off automatically when the computer is turned off.This is not the case for Internal hard drives that are built-in in the computers, their power supply will cut off automatically when the computer is shut down. You can turn ON the external HDD when ever you need, that is even when u are working with the computer and if you doesnt need the hard drive then you can left it OFF....When ever you need the hard drive, you can just turn ON...and dont unplug and plug the USB wire frequently, let it be plugged in the computer. Whenever there is a need unplug and take it away. Because if you unplug and plug it back many times, then the usb port may become wide, which results in frequent disconnection of the device that is connected to that particular usb port...
Guess it is useful....

COMPUTER DOES NOT RECOGNIZE 3200, 100GB MAXTOR STORAGE.


Hello

Ok, here is a couple of thing we can try to resolve your problem. Firstly, power down the computer, unplug all the wires from the external, plug all back in, and start the computer with the drive attached. This usually solve this problem.

The other thing is, if you turn on the external can you hear the drive spinning up? If not, i will suggestthat you try a new ac adapter...This will almost always solve this problem. The thing is, It's not supplying enough power to do anything but turn that silly little green/blue light on, thus, windows cannot recognise the drive, or, the drive won't start spinning.

Please do nt hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Try the above steps, and let me know what happens.

I already posted this in your previous question.

Kind Regards
Andrea

External Hard Drive has stopped being recognized


First thing to do is to try it on another computer to see if its not your windows playing with you.

If that doesn't work its either the USB controller inside your Hard drive box or the hard drive itself.

The only way to figure it out from there is to open the Hard drive case remove the Hard drive and either try it with another usb module that you know works or plug it right in the computer with IDE or Sata interface.

500 gB doesn't respond to anything!


Leave it unplugged for a minute or so and see if it boots up.
Check the Power supply if it still works.

Harddrive not readable by my computer.


well you could buy a hard drive enclsure (usb) then open up the seagate and take out the hd (unplug it form the ribbon cables) then plug it into the enclosuer and try plugging that in. may or maynot work becouse the hd itself may be "fried"
