Seagate mirra 320 GB drive network connection dead
I own a seagate mirra 320 GB drive and after a power surge, the network connectivity no longer works. Can you recommend someone I can send this device to to have it repaired? Seagate won't talk to me because I do not own "contract support".

I was trying to upgrade the capacity of the NAS by adding 320 gb hard drives. I kept running into problems with the bios not supporting the drives and not finding drivers for the system.
I came across an Open Source program called FreeNas that solved all the problems. It works great.
Well, I had a seagate, they have new software, let me just tell you its a pain to use with a lot of devices, its very secure, but also limits your usage. I returned mine and got a different brand. I would suggest trying to reformat it to possibly a fat32 style. go to properties, and click format, should be able to select it although seagate probably doesn't allow this. I would return it for a different brand so you don't have to deal with all these issues. I am guessing this is a newer one which is where the problems are. They are getting very bad reviews.
In that case you have a bad connection caused by a hardware failure. Take out the hard disk from the case, put it in a desktop and try to access directly there. If you can then the electronics of the case have failed - you need a new case.
If you can't then you need a new hard disk.
Unless you changed the default, your PX-EH25L receives its IP address from your router. Log into your router setup page and check its DHCP client list. There you will find a list of all of the devices connected to your router. The PX-EH25L will be in that list along with its provided IP address. --Steve
Check if the disk is NTFS or FAT32 or some other format. Because if it is in raw format you are dead! Also another tip is call the merchant you bought the USB from. Because if you buy things online, sometimes the product is bad quality. Another solution that saves time is to change to another USB.
