Question about Seagate Computers & Internet
But not shown in drive management. i download "seagate drive settings" from seagate web-site and run it, it shows unknown partition and 0 byte free space. when i tried to recover partition from recovery software, it shows 2 tb space of my 500 gb hdd.
I would get a bootable linux distro and boot up and use the partion manager there. (knoppix) If that does not work I would get the factory diagnostic tool from seagate and if it gave errors return it for warrenty or if not under warrenty least you will know there is something funny with the hardware.

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Check the partition size in Disk Management (if running Win7 - download a free Partition Manager if not) and see if the system is seeing the partition correctly. Seagate has recovery software available on their website but you may just have to repartition and reformat.

SOURCE: 500gb Seagate external. Shows in Device Manager, but 0 data, 0 space available: had three partitions, lots of data. Now shows status RAW. Is there anyway to access, or am I stuck with a recovery servi
Do a google on "seagate LBA 0" there are some diy options.
If it's just a case of bad sectors these guys can help you do remote data recovery over the net. http://FreeDataRecovery.us
