SOURCE: the motherboard cannot detect the hard drive/ hard disk

You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on

SOURCE: hello! my seagate ST30000CB external hard

It would cost as much to fix it, as it would be to replace it (if not more).

The hard drives in theose units are the same as any other 3 1/2" HDD in a computer.
They are sealed units.
Plus dropping it could have possibly damaged the disks in the drive, or the read/write heads.

SOURCE: Phillips 1TB HDD problem, playing movies hrough DVD player (USB)

My question would be are the movies in the right format. Just because they play on your computer does not mean they will play on you DVD.NTFS or FAT 32 would have no bearing on this. They are simply data per sector protocols and are related to magnetic storage devices.You may need the proper codec for you computer so it can make a DVD you player can play.

How can I find the files on my 1tb, seagate external drive?


You maybe removed the driver for the hard drive when you ran the anti virus. Those programs can do some strange things. If you click on the start, then computer. It will show all hard drives on your system. If you cannot find your files. I would think your computer does not see the external hard drive. To reinstall the driver, you would need to go to the driver's manufactures web site to down load or yours may have came with a disk. If so just run the disk. Could do a system restore , but that would be last option .

Installing 1tb External Hardrive from Freeagent onto Macbook Pro


I would be tempted to format the drive using the disk utility whch can be found under applications and then utilities once opened choose your drive in the left hand window and on the right hand side click on erase. If you are using the Seagate drive for the Mac only, format it as a Mac OS Extended (journaled) Choose your volume format and name and then erase. Hope this helps.

The first thing you need to do is go into the Control Panel, then double click on Administrative Tools. After that, open up Computer Management, then go to Storage, then Disk Management. This is where you will see all of your drives listed. Be extremely careful in this section because you don’t want to screw up your main hard drive.
What you are looking for in the Disk Management area is your new hard drive. If you only have one hard drive, it should show up as Disk 0. Therefore, your new drive should most likely be Disk 1. Underneath the name Disk 1 it should say Unknown, the size of the disk, and Not Initialized. Right click in this area and you should get a pop-up window. Click Initialize Disk and it should only take a couple of seconds.
Your hard drive is now ready to be formatted.
Formatting Your Drive Once your new hard drive is initialized, you will still have to format the drive before you can use it. To format, right-click in the column to the right of the Disk 1 label and then click New Simple Volume in the menu that pops up. From here, you can allocate how much of the drive you want for a new volume, what drive letter you want to call it, give it a name, and finally format the hard disk.
Formatting the hard drive may take a while, depending on the size. My 500 gigabyte drive took nearly an hour to format, so don’t be alarmed if your's takes a while. Once the format completes, your new hard drive will now show up in My Computer and you can start putting files on

Hard Drive Buzzing and Wont work (Seagate External Freeagent 1TB)


You are in trouble!
The buzzing sound is the heads trying to realign themselves at the beginning of the platter.
You could try putting it on a side and hope gravity helps.
But i'm afraid its broke beyond repair.

Formatting my Freeagent 1tb external hard drive for my Mac?


the problem is that your western digital operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple macs is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/NTFS-3G.shtml

download and install the software then restart your mac.
