Drive has failed. could be a read head. or a corruption of the directory or boot segment.
drives are not economical to service.
no practical solution other than to replace the drive.
sorry for the news.

My seagate 500 gig free agent desk external drive has suddenly stopped working. It was working fine 2 days ago and then yesterday it apparently wasn't connected so I reconnected it and then it seemed to be...


Do a FULL POWER DOWN Reboot. and try a different USB outlet in the PC... same Laptop to see if it is in your PC that is causing the problem.
Note: Most of those Drives do stop unless they are connected to the PC... energy savings.
If that didnt work... you could have a failed drive. Seagate should help you do some diag if it is in warranty... typically 3 years.

I cant detect my USB external HD for more than a minute.


There is probably a fault within the hard drive, the circuitry of the housing or perhaps the usb lead.

It would be as well to check the power supply first as some of them are less than reliable and are apt to provide too much voltage.

Red Light/Blue Light I/O Error


My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!

Computer doesn't see hd


hi, re: sabrent enclosure:

sort of same issues. documentation is feeble. hd powers up. red light is on.
but the new pc doesn't recognize the drive and, obvously doesn't assign a
drive letter to it.

i tried reversing the cable, changing the hard drive, using different usb port,
re-booting. still doesn't see the drive.


1. jumper settings are correct

2 i use vista, not win 2000 or xp

2 harddrive is old, from old computer

vista doesn't have 'my computer'
i can find manage disk management
can't right click becausse the drive isn't there

how do i change the hdd settings from dynamic to basic if i can't see the drive?
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

answers to your questions":

1. i'm running windows vista home

2 size of drive... it's old and probably fat(32) under 1g

3 i cycled through the settings
j8 jumper settings
slave, master, & single

no settings work

4. yes i heard the drive spin up

5 the led is red, not green

thx again for your efforts

Original boot discs


I'm afraid, you can't install XP home over XP Pro; it could be done the other way around. you'll have to  backup your important files then format your drive and restart from scratch.

if you have 2 partitionon in your HD e.g C: and D:
you can copy all your important files in the D:\ drive and just format and install XP home in the C:\ drive.
