Is this a new hard drive that you are using?
Once plugged in, you can right click on My Computer and choose Manage. From here select Disk Management under Storage. If the USB or Firewire cable work properly, you will see the drive listed. Here you can Format it and assign a drive letter. Here is the instructions from Seagates website.

My 500gb ext. seagates freeagent go is not detected in any pc, showing device driver software not fond, white light is blinking repeatedly...... please any solution


The drive is no longer recognized because the controller processor from the board inside it has failed. This is unfixable, the unit is dead. But you could salvage the actual hard disk inside it, it might still be operational and the data on it intact - just take it out and connect it directly inside a desktop.

the problem might be that your external hard drives circuit might have burnt,
just open the casing remove the internal hard drive and try connecting to a pc esata connector, if it is being detected you have a good hard drive and data mit have not been lost, just buy a externat casing, esata or ide and put back you hdd.

My hard drive doesn't show up


If the external hard drive is not detected by yur computer, try first connecting the drive on a different USB port so we can test the USB port and then after that if still not yet detected try a different USB cable to test the cable and after that still not detected connect the drive on different computer so we can see if this is already a hardware problem.....
