Suddenly, my 500GB Seagate external hard drive couldn't mount on my iMac. It was working fine till yesterday. I connected them to the Mac USD port, and the light in the seagate is blinking... Any


I can only comment generically:

I would try to uninstall the drive on the OS. Then re-start the computer. After the re-start, connect the drive and see if the drive re-installs itself.

If the error persists, then the drive is indicating failure. To absolutely verify if it has failed, take the drive to a store where there are MAC computers and try the drive on one of their computers to see if it works.

A continuous flashing LED on most devices where the LED does not normally continuously flash is an indication of a failure of the device. Some devices will flash an error code when designed to do so, and if possible.

I have a 320 gb acclaim portable hard drive. My mac doesn't read it, the first time I plugged it the lap asked me if I wished to format it and I said yes. Now it doesn't read it, what can I


You formatted the hard drive on your laptop in NTFS and the MAC cannot read and write to this formatted NTFS hard drive.
THE FIX
Format the hard drive using your laptop BUT this time format it in FAT32.
The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard disk, so now you can exchange data between the MAC and the Windows laptop.

Hi, my Transcend 500GB Hard Drive was working fine until it suddenly could not be detected by my Mac. When it was plugged in, the blue lights flashed but the presence of the device never popped up on...


This could eitehr be a physical problem due to drive damage or possibly a problem with the spindle. Can you hear the drive spinning up when the blue lights flash?

My hard disk makes a beeping sound when connecting to my mac and it's no recognizable. I already changed cables and ports.


Hi.

Beeping sound means physical damage. Often there is no way to recover data.

Please let me know if you would need some more advice on this.

Regards.

Ginko.
