Power on NetDisk

I am using a NetDisk Model NDU 10-160 external hard drive. The 'PWR' light is on, but the drive is not spinning, and my computer will not read it.

    I am also having the same issue.  Is there any way to get my information off the drive if a computer won't currently read it and it is shot?

Try connecting the drive to a different system and see if that works.Incase it workd on another system than reinstall the USB drivers by going into the device manager.Also you could try different USB cords as there could be an issue with that as well.

No PC stated
No OS stated. (operating system) nor if PC is internet connected.
no Simplesafe model stated, is it the 3.5" HDD? version
id yes it needs power pack to use it. HDD uses huge currents to start up. and spin.
USB ports?
if the drive fails on all PCs, the drive is bad. (or was erased by grimlin's in the night)
plug in the power pack 12vdc is correct.
do not mix it up with other packs or boom.

if not the pack is dead, or the hdd is dead.

My seagate freeagent 1tb is blinking whit lights and my computer does not recognize it. Help me


***Please NOTE***
Touch the drive and put your ear to it, to test if the drive is spinning and working. Do this while it is powered on. Also, try disconnecting the USB cable, reboot the computer, re-connect USB cable to another USB port on computer. If you still have the same issue, try the below solutions.
  • Make sure the computer and external hard drive are powered on.
  • Disconnect the external drive's USB or the eSATA cable, which ever one you're using.
  • Disconnect the power supply plug from the external drive.
  • Power off the computer.
  • Disconnect the computer's power supply cord for 60 seconds.
  • Reconnect the computer.
  • Power on the computer.
  • Connect the power supply to the external drive.
  • Connect the drive's USB or the eSATA cable and check for detection.
If the still no detection and still blinking lights on the drive, check the power supply to the drive.
Check to see what the led light on the power supply is doing.
If it's blinking, power down the drive, unplug data cable and then reconnect the power supply to another electrical outlet. If it still blinks repeatedly, then you power supply is bad.
If the led is solid (lit and not blinking) follow the same steps from above to connect it to another outlet.
Next, plug the power supply to the external drive and power it up.
If the power supply starts to blink repeatedly, then your controller board inside the enclosure is bad.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you.

Seagate 1.5 TB Free Agent will not turn off


Definitely, You must turn off the External Hard drive when it is not in use, because as it is external and it comes with an external power supply,the power supply will not cut-off automatically when the computer is turned off.This is not the case for Internal hard drives that are built-in in the computers, their power supply will cut off automatically when the computer is shut down. You can turn ON the external HDD when ever you need, that is even when u are working with the computer and if you doesnt need the hard drive then you can left it OFF....When ever you need the hard drive, you can just turn ON...and dont unplug and plug the USB wire frequently, let it be plugged in the computer. Whenever there is a need unplug and take it away. Because if you unplug and plug it back many times, then the usb port may become wide, which results in frequent disconnection of the device that is connected to that particular usb port...
Guess it is useful....

Need a power cord


Hi Tatearian,

Ximeta, like many external drive manufacturers use a fairly custom AC adapter. Finding a replacement is not only difficult but often costs more than the enclosures are worth.

The simplest and cheapest thing to do is go to your local PC shop, ask the technicians there to remove the hard drive from the enclosure and put it in a new one. This won't cost any more than buying a replacement adapter and will be much simpler to do.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

Pc never see external HD


Is it that your PC doesn't reconize the ex. Hard drive? Or aryou unable to locate it once the HD is connected to your computer? Go to my computer and the external hard drive should be displayed below the other hard drives. If it is there, right click on it and rename it, like BOB's 500GB, or something. Also create a shortcut on your desktop to locate it easier next time.

The hard drive won't boot up


the hard drive is dead ( dreaded click of ***** syndrome )
you can have that verified at a computer repair shop and if that is the case use a solid state hard drive as a replacement and not the spinning disc type as for the data you have stored , there are places than can recover it from the dead hard drive but unless you have it all backed up on an external hard drive or storage device then it is lost
