How do i format 1 tb seagate ,and how do i use it after to store my data from my desktop windows xp computer


http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/

Try to download the bundle of software from this link. This will be in ISO format probably. Write it on a CD /DVD. You can get your answer after booting with this CD. Choose proper options so that you can sure format your 1` TB HDD. I did it, or you can connect this HDD to another HDD as slave and can format this 1TB HDD.

Connect some other USB device (keyboard? mouse? memory-stick?) to your desktop?
Are those devices detected? If not, then either:
* the USB port(s) on your desktop are damaged,
* the device-drivers for the USB ports on your desktop are not installed.

Try connecting it to a different desktop/laptop, to see if the Seagate works at all, on any desktop.

My Free Agent 1 TB external has been dropped a few times. It seems to be working fine, but it makes a lounder noise than it used to when accessing files. Should I worry?


Yes. If the case has been damaged, imagine what happened inside the hard disk, where the tolerances are in microns. Start saving for a new one.
