If you have another computer, you could try to plug it in there as a slave/secondary drive so that you can try to see if My Computer would still recognize it. If it works, then great, you can still do backups. If not, and you really need that data, you might want to get the services of a data recovery company.
yah you must buy a Y-USB cable for your external hardisk. this is connection both ends are one is for hardisk and the other two cable is for USB slot of computer. why it two wires connection to usb because one wire is for Data and the other is for Power. If doesn't work..it might be a problem in your Operating system. i recommend to you to reinstall your Windows OS.. theres a 4 reasons why it happen appear the error... deffective USB cable..corrupted driver of USB device for seagate, virus infected of your systems..and maybe your hardive is deffective. Please rate if this is HELPFUL..thanks
Assuming the seagate is still working, it would be a simple matter copying the seagate to another hard drive. Need more info for your problem. Operating system, your new drive, in computer case or not.
have you installed a new hard drive, or have a new comp. you want to transfer the data to.
Seems that Seagate did not release a version of software which could be used on a Windows Server 2003 platform. I checked their web site at the following link & didn't find any software supported on Windows Server 2003: http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=freeagent-downloads&vgnextoid=3723b5b59b7d5110VgnVCM100000f5ee0a0aRCRD
Sorry, but I can't help you with this one. Try contacting Seagat for this & see if they have a solution to your problem.
Try using your SEAGATE Hard Disk on another PC , if it works then you have one of these problems,
1. Your USB Port in your PC (Or Laptop) is broken and you have to get another one*
2. You have a software problem (Try reinstalling your OS or scan for viruses).
3. The USB Cable has a problem (get a new one).
(*) some technician can replace your USB port or fix it, or you can buy a "USB Hub"
just reading this forum I think I have bought a total POS. Damn! wich i would have read this first. This boat anchor has all of my backup on it, is only a month old and is now junk. What is this the 3rd world's way of collecting all of our data when we return them?
