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"

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Would suggest a multiple to 1 adapter that would accommodate most if not all types of connection. The price difference would be negligible and since its multiple would work on just about any IDE, SATA, 2.5 or 3.5. A good example is this model.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

If the laptop is also XP, the drive should be recognized without problems. Sometimes this may not happen if the disk is unusually partitioned (could happen if you manually dual-booted it with Linux, for example). Verify the enclosure is working properly and has enough power supplied to, and that it appears in Device Manager. If all this applies, the enclosure must be considered working and the problem might be in the partitioning or disk access.
In XP Pro, do Start > Run Command > DISKMGMT.MSC and press OK. See whether the disk appears (if it doesn't, it's the enclosure, or its drivers - or the disk was dying and is now dead, but that's not very likely), select the NTFS or FAT32 partition - ignore any others - right click and mount the unit as drive, say, G.
If it doesn't work but the partition is found, you may need a more powerful tool such as Paragon Partition Manager.
