Sorry to report that the solution offered to me was referrals to companies that do data recovery but the price is too expensive for ordinary people like myself. I will have to take out a second loan in order to afford their cost! I wish I could be referred to companies who offer a more affordable/reasonable cost for data recovery for non-business owners who happen to have important documents stored in their hard drives but will not bankrupt them if not retrieved.

Disappointed,
Lulu Robertson

My Hitachi external fell and wouldn't register on my computer and is also making a noise, can it be fixed?


Depending on the noise it is making, yes and no. I can promise you if it is making noises, it is damaged internally. You can take it to data recovery companies such as data safe and GeekSquad to have your data recovered.

Sounds like driver problem to me. Re install the driver by using installation disc, or if you have lost your CD, than use this Driver Update Software to update. I hope this helped.

Please i need the power adapter rating for seagate


Have you got the original power adapter?
If so the voltage details are printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter.
If the external USB Seagate hard drive houses a 31/2" drive then it requires an power adapter that provides +12 volts and +5 volts both supplying approx 2000mA of current.
If the Seagate uses a 21/2" (laptop) hard drive then it only requires +5 volts power adapter.
The only problem is the power connector to the external drive, make sure it suits the external hard drive unit and the power pins are correctly wired for the Seagate. If the polarity of the plug is incorrect lt wired (ie reverse polarity) then it could damage the USB hard drive and adapter case.

External Seagate Hard Drive making clicking noise


Did you plug it into a different USB port?

The click noise (at least from the usb hdds that i have had) is due from it being underpowered. So if you plugge it into a different USB, move it back to the other.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.

Power supply for Seagate 400GB


Ebay or seagate.com may be a solution.
I've used those Seagate portables and 2 have caused problems.
Or disassemble the unit, remove the drive and buy a portable case or USB adapter.
