SOURCE: My HDD Seagate Momentus 5400.6

Hi, it might be a file system error.
You could try removing the hdd from the usb enclosure and connect it directly to your pc via SATA.
(power off both of them before doing so)
If it really is the file system then scan disk should repair it automatically when turning on the pc.
Then if the pc recognizes it you can put it back in the usb enclosure.
Good luck!

Why does Windows not automatically detect Seagate 1F2168-300


1. You need Windows 7 or 8
Earlier OS can support up to 2TB max.
2. Even with Windows 7 or 8, 4TB HDD cannot be used as System
unless you have UEFI bios.

Need freeagent pro driver for window 8.1


If your disk is not working with Windows 8.1 (connect it, and watch to see if there is bubble at the bottom right of your screen which says 'found new hardware', and 'searching for divers' then 'your new hardware is installed and ready to use': this will only happen the first time you connect your HDD to your computer and possibly only if you are connected to the internet)..
If your HDD isn't recognised by your computer, specifically by your computer's USB system, contact Seagate support over the problem.

Samsung HDD division was only recently sold to Seagate.
"ST" is a Seagate number so your drive cannot be old - manufactured by ex-Samsung factory now part of Seagate.

Utility from Seagate (e.g. Seatools) should be able to display from S.M.A.R.T the number online hours.

Sometimes, recent hardwares (laptop components) don't have its drivers for XP1 & 2. (It conflicts.)
Try with XP3. Otherwise, you have to reinstall win7 and run win XP virtually under win7.

sounds like you are using win7 64bit maybe? if so then there is your problem, since win 7 came out it has had driver issues with any type of external drive being recconized. Sometimes they work others not at all. If this is your problem, check out windows for their patch(works for some, but not all, worth a try). Another option is to check to see if there is a driver update for your specific type of PC/Mac from the seagate website, and that may solve it for you.

There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.
