Yes! IF you have a clean room....

Hard disc platters write on a surface 1/20th the size of your hair. So even dust you cannot see will destroy the data as you try to use it.

So simple answer is no. you cannot change the platter, unless you have a clean room :)

Seagate external hard disk is not getting detected in windows 7 previously it was detecting. i tried to change usb cable, tried on different system but nothing worked. i want to take backup of data also....

This is my suggestion for you to possibly recover the back up file in your external hard disk.

Remove the enclosure cover of the external hard disk. Detach the hard disk from the ide connection.
Change the jumper setting of the hard disk to slave. See the sticker in the hard disk to see how to set up the jumper to slave. Connect the hard disk to the ide cable inside your pc. If your computer is equipped with sata cable, just find some ide cable and connect it the the ide slot in your motherboard.

Restart your system and you will find your hard disk as drive (d:) in your system. If this was successful then problem can be cause by loose terminal solder in the usb/ide connector of the enclosure, or possible voltage drop of the power supply of the enclosure. USB driver issue or problem with the usb slot in your computer can also cause this issue.

Change the hard disk

If you do it yourself you invalidate the warranty, it is not too hard but fiddly, not a good idea unless you are a tech! try other world computing.
