Bought a seagate backup plus hard drive to backup files, installed on computer but cannot backup files, problem says could not be performed because of anI/O device error.


Connect the external drive to a different computer, and try to copy a few files to it. If you still get "I/O Error", then the unit has malfunctioned.

XP is dead. I recommend you make sure any critical data is backed up, and start saving/looking for a newer machine.

Im trying to recovery my music in my hitachi tb, but usb doesnt recognize the device, help


If you PC does not see the drive (assuming the PC has all the required USB drivers), then, 1 check and or subsitute the USB cable. 2. check the power supply/wall wart for correct power. 3. check the USB plug on the PC, try a different one if equiped. 4. the USB interface card in the external case may be toast. You will need to check or sub the interface to ensure that's not the issue. 5. place the drive in a different case with a different USB interface.

We have been using a 2 TB Samsung G3 Station External Hard Drive to connect to the TV through a laptop. One day it was working next day no power seems to be going through it. The light doesn't come on...


Assuming you don't hear any activity it might be the power supply that has died. Check if it's under any warrant.. if not you can always rescue the hard drive by taking it out of the enclosure and plugging it into your PC. Odds are it's a SATA drive. Either way.. taking it out of the enclosure will rule out of it's the hard drive or the components. Good luck.

It is able the read the external harddrive but im unable to acceses it when i try it ask's to reformat it which i really don't know what to do


If this is a new drive with nothing on it then just format it. Windows(R) will tell you what to do.

However, a 1TB drive will take ages to format if you haven't sub-divided it by partitioning* (It will take ages anyway but at least you can have a break after each partition).

If the drive already has data on it then it is likely that it is damaged. It is sometimes possible to plug it in to a different IDE or SATA connector which will allow it to be read. Sometimes a different computer can read the data.

Generally speaking, if the operating system says it's not formatted then the only thing to do is to format it.

* I find the best way to set up a drive is with a program called 'Gparted'. It is a Linux based application that runs from it's own bootable CD and partitions drives and formats them at the same time. It is much quicker than Windows(R).

GParted comes as a free, downloadable CD ISO. Google for it and instructions on it's use.

Hope this helps,

1 TB WD Mybook


The essential edition is a single drive unit. if you have another computer you could pull the drive out of the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to retrieve your data. I use an external usb 2.0 to IDE/Sata adapter that connects to the drive and the PC. These can be found online for $10.00-$15.00. This adapter has saved me many times in the past. The other option is to connect the MyBook to another computer (Mac or PC) and see if that computer will read the drive correctly or not.

WESTERN DIGITAL 1 TB HARD DRIVE WON'T MOUNT


Hello,

1. Assuming you have tried different cables.
2. Assuming that you are trying different ports (different usb) on your computer or even different computers.
This eleminates your computer and isolates your drive. These are know problems with the WD drives. Sometimes you get a bad drive. It happens. WD offers full support for their drives. Esp. new ones.

This website tells you if the noise you hear is normal. Also, most of these drives are under warrenty for at least a year.
