I have a 500 GB Seagate portable external hard drive model 9ZA2AH-500. It was working fine untill yesterday. Now when I plug it in all I get is a faint beeping sound Then it stops. I have tried plugging it...


It may be the interface that has failed but I suspect the hdd has failed.
Take the hdd out of the case and fit another drive. If that one is OK the hdd is dead. If it doesn't work, try a new usb to SATA interface.

My Maxtor One Touch III external hard disk has suddenly stopped getting recognized on my laptop. I am using a Windows XP, SP 2 OS. The system is unable to recognize the USB device. Can someone please help?


Check power of HDD, that problem can usually manifest because some of your usb ports can't send enough Volts to your device, restart your machine, check connections, and it should work again as charm :)))


Please rate my solution, thank you :)

Hitachi SimgpleTOUGH 320GB portable HDD - Not recognized


Make sure you are using the right USB cable. Also try on a different USB port (preferred one on the back of the PC)

Can you see the HDD on "Disk Management?"

Also if you hear any clicking sound then the HDD has become faulty.


All the best!

Computer does not recognize simpletech


Assuming Windows, try the Device Manager and see if the (old) disk is listed there in the disk drives section.
If so, right-click it and select Uninstall. (do this while the new driver is disconnected)

That should force Windows to recognize and reinstall the new drive when you plug it again.

For other causes check out the external hard disk problems.

Simpletech external portable drive not working due to power surge


Then you should not connect the adapter, I think your HDD is fried, because these HDDs are USB powered, they do not need any extra power. That’s why HDD data cable comes with two USB 2 pins , one is for data and other is purely for power.

Hard drive not recognized by vista or xp


Did you go to microsoft and try to see if you could update any drivers or software that might help you? it's free (microsoft.com) It couldn't hurt to try, have microsoft scan for updates, and it will come up with a list of what's needed or required. Also on your computer, under control panel, updates, make sure you turn off automatic install and allow you to pick what you would like to install. hope it helps, e-mail at tallcoolone100@yahoo.com

External hard drive


There is no enough power in you USB port. I was have similar problem with my old PC (Duron 1.3GHz, I don't know what motherboard).

When I conected HDD (My passport Essential) to USB (there is only USB 1.1 port on this MB, and probably if you have USB 2.0 you will have no problem), hardware wizard is started, looking for drivers (which are not needed to install portable HDD), and then I have message like "unrecognized USB device ...".

SOLUTION: On this MB there is 6 USB 1.1 ports, but only 2 are connected on case (with plugs on case outside), others are on MB and if you have cable you can use it. In my BIOS all 6 were turned on, and I think there must be a problem with power on chip (you have some power divided with 6 ports, and this is not enough for HDD).

I turned off my other USB ports in BIOS, and left only fist two, and HDD is now in my computer ....
