Hello,
first boot the pc and enter bios setup then see it shows the your hard disk if not then
plz check the jumper settings for proper way to attach the hard disk to pc. here is another way to operate your hard disk to use this hard disk only one data cable. another peripheral like cd rom and dvd you have to remove.
if you do all this then check it another pc and copy your data to another pc then you use the pen drive or external hdd to backup
thanks
ramesh

Cant be detected


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

Hello!
I suggest you to download Recuva. When you run it the first time a wizard will help you to setup everything you need to restore the lost data(if it`s recoverable).
Good luck

Turn your computer off.
Disconnect the power cord.
Disconnect all other disk-drives and CD/DVD drives, leaving only the "suspect" drive connected.
Restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP, and see if the drive is detected, and how it is connected (primary/secondary, master/slave).

Read the model-number and serial-number and manufacture-date on the disk's label,
and access Seagate's web-site, to check the warranty-status of the drive.
If the warranty is valid, Seagate will replace the drive, at minimal cost to you.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.
