Re: Hard disk not detected

The problem is that u have done partitions for 160 GB harddisk, so do all the partitions of 40 GB or less than that.

Seagate barracuda external 500 gb hard drive usb not seen any longer,cables and power okay , tried on three computers

Verify what Drives have been detected by your Operating System by using Windows: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk(s) will be displayed with all existing partitions and any assigned drive letters.
Your external (or internal) drive must be recognized as having formatted partitions that have a drive letter assigned to each required partition.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!
