Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

External Segate 200 GB SATA Hardisk (USB 2.0 connection to PC)

I diagnosed my external hardisk with a scandisk of windows. While it was on going - my nephew accidentally unplug the power supply of the external hardisk...so i tried turning it back on,,,then it cannot be read by the pc anymore though during the start-up the Hardisk can be detected but cannot be read and causes the windows start-up to hang. Even if I tried  connecting the hardisk directly to the SATA connection of the motherboard...but still it cannot be read though it was detected - the PC will hang. I tried everything even with the use of MAC. I even tried some software that will boot directly trough DVD-ROM and try to recover it. But still though it can be seen in a window style screen - but when I try to click it (drive letter) - the system hangs. But I think the hardisk is still running coz I can still feel the heat in the hardisk when I touch it. Please help ...thanks a lot....

I appears the volume may have been corrupted. YOu should run data recovery on the drive if you need any of the content. If not reformatting the drive, should restore it. If the contents are not important, or you have it backed up, go ahead and connect it to the MACINTOSH and format it for MS-DOS.

Unless it is physically damaged ( clicking, beeping, knocking ) it shoud be usable.


Hope this helps.

It looks like your hardisk or memory problem.. probably there is bad sector.. try to do 'Check Disk' (usually it called 'scandisk') first.

Hardisk tidak bisa terdeteksi oleh BIOS apa penyebabnya dan solusinya untuk memperbaiki ?


Hardisk tidak terdeteksi bisa di sebabkan oleh :
- Bad sektor
- Hardisk sudah lemah
- Cabel data rapuh/rusak
- Power Supply tidak mencukupi untuk keseluruhan Daya PC

langkah yg pertama :
- coba ganti cable data hardisk, dan periksa PIN Hardisk masih utuh atau tidak
- Ganti Power Supply yang Daya-nya lebih besar
- Scanning dengan hardisk lain dengan menggunakan Norton Disk Doctor untuk mengecek Bad Sektor

My laptop Model Compaq 5204NR I want to extend my hardisk. Is it possible to use External Hardisk for this model laptop. If it means how much can i use 1TB hardisk or which is suitable for this laptop....


Yes you can use an external HDD to extend your current HDD. If by extend you mean use the external HDD for storage and such.
However if you wanted to literally extend your current HDD by creating a single partition for both HDDs then it could be extremely problematic because the external HDD will be connected with an USB cable. If you were to accidentally unplug the usb cable then your whole system would crash.

yah you must buy a Y-USB cable for your external hardisk. this is connection both ends are one is for hardisk and the other two cable is for USB slot of computer. why it two wires connection to usb because one wire is for Data and the other is for Power. If doesn't work..it might be a problem in your Operating system. i recommend to you to reinstall your Windows OS.. theres a 4 reasons why it happen appear the error... deffective USB cable..corrupted driver of USB device for seagate, virus infected of your systems..and maybe your hardive is deffective. Please rate if this is HELPFUL..thanks

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

When i connect my seagate via usb nothing comes up on my pc, the light comes on on the external h/d but nothing pops up on the pc? help please i need precious photos on it. thanks


have you try connect your pen drive to the same usb port, is it working?
If Pendrive is working but not the Seagate hardisk. Most propably is your USB power is not enough to support the External Seagate hard disk, you need to supply more power to the Seagate hard disk by using USB Y cable(1 end connect to Seagate hardisk where the other end got 2 USB connector to connect to your PC).
