Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
My external hard drive is not recognized , it was before but not it is not, it keeps saying a device is unknown, i tried to restore but it did not work My Seagate FreeAgent Go 250gb portable hard drive isn't recognized anymore. I tried to disconnect and reconnect, tried to connect a flash usb drive, and different cable and nothing works. I also tried to connect it through other computers and still nothing. All the hard drive does is make the "I'm working" sound and light up but it doesn't show up at all in computer or the computer won't even make the connected sound. when it stopped working was when I tried to run a program imgburn and it said the program wasn't responding and then I closed it then ran it again and then I went to my folder on the hard drive clicked so I can burn and it said that it was unavailable. Then I disconnected the hard drive "safely" then connected again then it didn't show up. Did I do something wrong or is it just a ironic? or is it dead? :(
I have the same problem with a 500GB HD by the same maker. Fortunately mine started throwing "delayed write failed" errors regarding the MFT. I had enough time to save my data. Your event log should say something to point you in the right direction. Make sure your pc is up to date with the latest service pack too and start looking for a new External HD. Tiger Direct has great deals. I got a 1TB for about $120 Good Luck!
