It sounds as though you have one of the following problems:

  1. Dirty contacts that can be cleaned with CRC electronic component cleaner;
  2. A faulty drive that may have been dropped at some point in time. Your drive may have a three-year warranty and Seagate will replace it. Just go online and provide the serial number; and.
  3. You may have to reinstall the drivers. The Seagate website can provide this if needed.

My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

My computers no longer recognize my external hard


Check to see if its still under warranty. Most times they have at least 1 to 2 years. If it isn't, I would remove the drive from the case and slave it to your system to see if will work that way. Doing that will narrow it down if its a drive issue or a USB issue. Good Luck.

Hello,
Try to go through disk management and see if it works?
Open control panel then select administrative tools then disk management. Then in left column click disk management.
If you locate it may be it must be initialise by the system or need to create partition by formatting.
You can also check all the cables , the power cables the adapter , try to change the Usb cable also..
ok
Good luck !!

It has to do with the way computers count. Computers count in binary where we count in decimal.
Hard drive makers list there drives capacities in the decimal format, where windows lists it in it's binary format.
Wikipedia has a good explanation.

Also, the drive may have some preinstalled software on it that could be taking up a bit of space (it's usually not much).
