My Seagate Free Agent Classic external hard drive won't work

My Seagate Free Agent Classic external hard drive will not work.  It flashes amber for a few seconds, but won't get recognized by my computer.  It had been working for 6 months, and all of a sudden decided to quit on me.  Everything is set up correctly and I have disabled smart USB management in the Device Manager of Vista.  Please help me get my iTunes music and other files back!

Have you tried a different USB port? Some USB chipsets are prone to frying if you use the front accessible ports. Also, try the drive on another computer.

The drivers for vista and windows 7 are probably the same. As long as you performed an upgrade and all your original programs and data are still there. there is no point in updating drivers unless you are expieriencing problems.

I have IBM eServer with ServeRaid-7K on board controller and have 3 SCSI 73GB hard drives configured in RAID-5 array. Hard Drives are running critically low on space and I bought 3 300GB scsi Ultra320 hard...


First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive


I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

29160lp sees cd drives but not HDs


I'd suspect the termination or the cables. SCSI is notoriously particular about seeing the proper termination. I've found that I've had to use external termination to get some devices to work. Try one drive at a time to see if you can get any of the hard drives recognized. If not, try better cables or external termination.

Problem installing external hard drive


Run device manager and keep it running during the installation of drivers. It will take a bunch of drivers, but it will work and it will stop once it has all the drivers installed.

Installing new seagate pata/100 hard drive and belkin ata/133 controller


There should be a tab on the back of the actual hard drive where you can switch it to CS "cable select", You just take the tab out of the slot that it is in and switch it to where the cable select is. I am sure that the drive is set to something different or it would be working.

Is this a USB drive?

Try turning off Enhanced USB support, from the Device Manager in Windows; this will allow it to be read, a little slower though.
