SOURCE: my seagate 1tb external harddrive is not

Is it recognized when connecting to another computer?

If not, then either:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the casing has failed,
* the disk-drive inside the casing has failed.

If the former, then disassemble the case, and remove the disk-drive,
and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer,
to see if the files on the disk-drive are still accessible.

If the unit is still under warranty, exercise the warranty, to get a replacement.

Seagate backup plus is beeping and will not pull up on computer??


Troubleshooter: Seagate Manager does not see my Seagate FreeAgent drive Troubleshooting in case the Seagate Manager cannot detect the FreeAgent drive.
Sometimes, Seagate Manager (the software bundled with newer FreeAgent drives) does not see the drive.
This article focuses on drives that can be seen in Windows, but are not seen in the software.
If you are using Windows 8, please note that Seagate Manager is not supported in Windows 8, so you will need to use a different backup solution.

If the drive is not detected in Windows 7/Vista/XP, then use the external drive troubleshooters to try to resolve the non-detection issue.
After connecting the FreeAgent drive, please give it up to 1 minute to display in the middle of the main screen in Seagate Manager.

If the drive does not display, open My Computer (Computer for Vista) and confirm the drive is listed there. The drive should be listed as "FreeAgent Drive". If you have formatted or renamed the drive, then it will show up with the name you provided.
If the drive does not display in My Computer (Computer for Vista), use the External Drive Troubleshooter to help resolve that issue before continuing.
If the drive is detected in Windows, check if the Seagate service is running.
  1. Right-click on the My Computer (Computer for Vista) icon.
  2. Choose Manage.
  3. In the Computer Management window, click Services and Applications.
  4. Open the Services area.

    208575-2.jpg
  5. Scroll down the Seagate Service (they are listed alphabetically).
  6. The Seagate service should display Started in the Status column.
    If it does not, right-click on the service and choose START.
  7. If the service reports as Disabled, enable it to start automatically.
    To do this, right-click on the service. A Status Type drop-down menu will appear. Click on the General tab. Select Automatic and click OK.
    208575-3.jpg
  8. Reboot the computer.
  9. If the service fails to start after you reboot with these settings, then check the logs of your Antivirus or Antispyware software to confirm they are not restricting the startup of this service, as some aggressive protection programs can prevent services from starting until you approve them. So, you may need to approve this program specifically in the Antivirus/Antispyware software. Please contact your anti-virus software support for help.
  10. If the service will not start or is working already, uninstall the software (for steps on uninstalling the software, see this article).
  11. Once the software is uninstalled, reboot the computer.
  12. Then reinstall the software by opening the InstallSeagateManager.EXE file on the FreeAgent drive. If you have removed the software from the drive, it can be downloaded from the download center.
  13. If the drive is still not seen by the computer, connect the drive to other USB ports on the computer.
    Some eSATA cards block the drive's identity and prevent it from working. Updates have been made to Seagate Manager and to some vendors' eSATA drivers to help this issue. See our eSATA tips article for details.
  14. If the drive still does not display after these steps, please contact Technical Support.
Check Required Windows Component Installations
1. Check to make sure you have the MSXML Parser 6.0 installed:
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "MSXML Parser 6.0"
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=993c0bcf-3bcf-4009-be21-27e85e1857b1&displaylang=en
2. Make sure Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 installation
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5".
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component. 3. Try the steps listed here.
4. Remove the Seagate folder from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data (XP) or C:\Program Data folders (Vista) and reboot.
5. Download and install the newest Windows Installer.
6. Download newest Seagate Manager from our Website and re-install a clean copy. Note: Do not do the update when the message pops up saying one is available.

There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.

Maxtor basics external drive


Hi Nuisance101, I recall your running vista. Vista is a nightmare. If you cound only see the troubles we see on a daily basis here at FixYa you'ed understand. It's a common problem with Vista not seeing USB devices, externial devices. It does & then the next second it doesn't. Same for all external devices. I'm am 100% sure the trouble is not your system or your devices. It's Vista. I have gone over dozens of post from vista users. One would think MS has been on vacation since the release of vista. You can look at vista's web site for help for a possible fix, at this link. (I have no faith). MS blames driver software. Your Maxtor drive is external. Henve no driver software.
So it falls into that vista area of one time vista see's the drive & the next it does not.
Either way I though Maxtor addressed vista issues. I prefer Seagate drives myself. Personally know lots of people who's Maxtor's drives have just gone down for no reason. Seagate bought Maxtor.

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/hardware.mspx

Most of the post from vista users, claim users should check vista's updates often. Since Max Blaster did its job, I'm inclined to blame vista.

I wish I could give you a better fix or suggestion but I'm up against vista. That's why I run WinXP Pro. I do not have these problems.

Best wishes Nuisance101!
Mike

Can't install Strat-O-Matic Baseball


This is a Vista thing that MS still has not fixed. However, when the search for driver page pops up click on manual specify location & point it to, (c:\windows\system32 & check the search subfolders), checkbox. Can't say if this will work for you or not. Some it does. Vista is a devil in a blue dress!
