Question about Seagate (9Y7275557) 400 GB Hard Drive

PC Cannot recognize External Seagate Drive

I backed up all my data to my external hard drive and now that I am attempting to retrieve it, I am prompted to format the drive. Recently, one of my family members connected the external hard drive to a MAC. Would this be the cause of this error? Can it be fixed?

This is a common problem. IF the external was unplugged during a operations, there is a possibility of hard drive corruption. Also, you mentioned it was on a MAC. If your buddy formatted the drive for the MAC (Which would be HSF) so PC won't see the filesystem anymore until you reformat for PC (FAT or NTFS). I understand you might not was to reformat, but that is my recommended answer to this issue. There is one other choice though. Try googling Diskwarrior. This program is pretty good at repairing corrupted harddrives and it pretty good at detecting filesystems. If disk warrior doesn't do the trick, I would go with reformating.

Probably, the new operating system cannot recognize your Seagate external hard drive. You can connect the Seagate external hard drive to another computer to copy data to another device. If the problem still exists, you might need to perform data recovery.

You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

Malfunction


You can try to take it out from the enclosure and plug the hard drive directly to your motherboard for you to retrieve the date. Or just buy a different drive enclosure.

Problem


Hi Ryan,

I decided that retrieving my data was more important that the seagate warranty and i was not prepared to send the free agent overseas with the data still on it so i removed the hard drive from the freeagent case (case now stuffed) and put the hard drive in an "off the self" hard drive enclosure". All my data was there. It is still working fine. Two big lessons for me - moving files from my lap top to the external drive is not back up and external hard drives can be fragile, best not move them around like a library book. From my low tech view the circuit board on the freeagents is flawed.

Regards,

TMV NZ

In this case the MOST effective way is to try some data recovery program to see if it can help rescue your data on your Seagate external.
