Format utility

What is the actual problem ? Please give a better description. Based upon your current description it seems you can't either find a utility at your computer to format a harddisk, or the format-utility at your computer can't format your harddisk.....

Deskstar 500gb not showing, no noise,

First impression, based upon your description is : there's no(t enough) power available for this harddisk. Best is to check the powerconnection, which is hooked up at this harddisk.If it's an external disk, you should check if the poweradapter can provide enough energy (Voltage and current).
But, sometimes even the data-cable might bring this problem. So, check if this is also connected properly.

Cannot access c drive on laptop

You don't describe any error-codes you get, nor where the access is blocked. I mean,
1) is the access to the harddisk blocked by BIOS (You need to enter an password)
2) Is the harddisk formatted, but not accessible, because there're no bootable files of an OS present (i.e. Windows is not installed)
3) is the harddisk damaged

With current description it's fairly impossible to see where the problem is -erely- located.

External drive unallocated

First check if the included poweradapter is plugged in correctly.

If it is OK, you should try to remove the USB-cable to the PC and stick it into another USB-port of the PC. If the problem maintains, you should hook the harddisk up to another PC for extra verification.

If still no positive results, it's possible the external drive contains a malfunctioning IC onboard. To overcome this, you should swap this drive into a different USB-enclosure, or hook it to the PCs motherboard (which is inside the PC).

If still not succesful, you can try to use Acronis Disk Director. This might handle harddisks which are unformatted or even formatted for a different operating system like Unix / Linux etc, but are not readable / visible to your operating system like Windows or Mac OS. This program can re-format almost any disk for you.

-Sigh- if still not succesfull, yep, the disk might be damaged. Check for bend / broken pins or connectors at your harddisk.

OK the only shot you got is to geta USB to SATA/IDE converter dongle, connect to another PC's USB port. Hopefully, you will be able to read it. Otherwise still plugged in you may be able to use recovery software and get you DATA back. Recover my files is one,

Segate UBS hard drive with broken USB port


i) i would wisely suggest you not to open the compartment of harddisk, try taking it to nearest repair centre since these part are very delicate(like they have delicated soldering ...or components....)

Possibly, you need to get your hands on a data recovery software.
I can point you at this tutorial about harddisks and a few programs witch they review in it.

Thats a 10 page article check if there is anything usefull to you in the other pages.

Or take it to a professional data recovery center / shop / place / guy.

Good luck.
