Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB Video Included. Humming, Wobbling

Not detected by anything, hooked it up via usb directly, and still didn't work. The drive spins up and everything. Has not yet been opened, but I do plan on trying to repair the drive myself sometime.

500GB 7200.10 Barracuda

Stopped working when I accidentally tripped over the drive.
I'm hoping someone could diagnose the drive simply from the sound. Is it the heads? The platters? Thanks, let me know if anything else is needed...

Brother,it is a firmware problem for seagate drives,the 7200.10 has a typical problem of firmware,once it currupt,then it cannot be detcted by the BIOS or PC ,or showing 0GB or less capacity when connected,so you can use some useful tools such as HD Doctor for Seagate to repair it,this problem is very common but less tool can deal with it till now.

My verbatim model 47562 connects via usb and powers up, but nothing is detected by the computer at all and it does not show up. Need help urgently to recover all data please.


First of all try to:
- use a different usb cable to connect it
- connect it to a different computer
- connect it to a different USB port (preferably one in the back of the PC, not in the front plate)

If still isn't working, could be the electronics of the verbatim HDD case, you can try to open it, take out the hard drive and connect it directly to a desktop pc via SATA inteface. This can be tricky, so let me know if you need further assistance in doing that. You may need an adapter, depending on the HDD interface your desktop pc has
.
If unfortunately your drive is making mechanical repetitive clicking sounds it could be broken. If the data is very important to you, you can rely on companies like this:

to have it recovered, be warned though that the price will be expensive (about 1500$) so see if it's worth it.
Best regards

I am trying to view pictures and videos as well as music form my seagate 250gb expansion portable hard drive, through my dvd player via usb port. it reads "no data" is there anything that i can do to...


Most probably your harddrive is formatted using NTFS file system, while your DVD player only understands FAT32 filesystem.
Check the format of your drive by hooking it up to a computer and opening it's properties. And check your DVD player's specifications regarding USB support in it's manual or online, on manufacturer's website support section.
If indeed the filesystem type is the problem, you can do a couple of things:
1) Purchase a Flash pendrive of suitable capacity (these are FAT32 usually) and use it for viewing pictures & videos on your DVD player,
2) Move everything temporarily from your external hard disk to your computer's disk and re-format your external drive using FAT32 filesystem. Note, that FAT32 has some disadvantages, like a 2GB file size limit. And also remember, that formatting the drive wipes everything from it, so be sure to copy all stuff to your computer's internal drive first!
3) Check the possibility of connecting your PC to the TV directly and forget about the DVD player for viewing pictures and videos.

WD 250 GB external hard drive is not being detected by system


Hi !

First check if your WD is running (spinning), no matter if the blue light is on. Can you hear it close with your ear, or feel vibrations on your hand when it starts.

If it runs, then check/replace the USB cable you are using with another.
Check the Power supply if it gives necessary power.


If you are familliar with disassembling/assembling, then open and remove the HDD from the box and try to connect the disc directly to your PC (using another HDD Data/Power cables).

If it runs, and you can acces it, then something is wrong with the Box.

If it doesn't, then the HDD is broken or damaged.

Please note that if your device is under warranty, DO NOT open the box ! Contact your seller for service/replacement instructions.

Regards.

External hdd not detected


Formatting a drive means resetting it to manufacturer settings
And deleting everything in there, this solves most of hard
Disk problems, mp3s ipods ect..

if its powering on without being connected to anything do the following.

connect it via usb cable to your pc, or if it’s a hard drive its already connected.
click on start, right click on my computer and go to manage
in the table select, "storage" then "disk management"
in that table find the drive that relates to your mp3 player
if its not there "buy a new mp3 this is faulty" if its there
then right click on it and select "new partition"
you just next next everything and then format it and after
a while it shows "healthy2
unplug it, plug it back on and that's it your drive is fully working
now move what ever you want to it just like before.

SimpleTech 320GB Hard Drive- unable to detect the device


I had a similar problem with a SimpleTech 250g Pininfarina USB drive.
I went through the drivers, the power supply, the USB cables, and the various
computers, USB cards and Operating systems.
Finally I opened the case and found the disk drive was mounted too far
forward, causing the IDE connector to barely touch. I loosened the mount screws,
slid the drive back towards the connector, tightened everything down and it works.

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z.
