Hello

Can you feel the drive spinning at the power up?
If the computer makes a sound, without notifying you that the device is not recognized, here is something you can try.

Go to:
Start
Control Panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Storage
Disc Management

Now you should see your drive in the schematic below, right click on it and choose to assign new drive letter and paths.If there is no drive letter assigned to the drive, assign on, otherwise just choose the option to change the drive letter.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Seagate Expansion 1TB external Desktop Hard Drive (9sf2A4-500) not detected.em?


Sounds like driver problem to me. Re install the driver by using installation disc, or if you have lost your CD, than use this Driver Update Software to update. I hope this helped.

Drive does not start when plugged in. Says to format. Cannot get at data on drive. It is a segate 320g expansion drive


This has happened because you either
A) unplugged the drive without ejecting it properly first
B) experienced an electrical storm power surge with it plugged into your unprotected PC
C) Dropped, jarred, kicked, punched, or otherwise mishandled the drive.

It's a fairly common problem among people with these USB drives. One day it works fine, the next it's asking you to format. Unfortunately there is no way to get around this, a few (VERY few) people have said that plugging the drive into a different PC worked, but as far as I know your best bet is to format the drive and then immediately run a program like undelete to get your data back. It may or may not work, however, so you may have to consider this a loss.

- If the drive is still under warranty, get your money back.

> I purchased

Brand-new, I presume?

> is it a failed HDD

Yes. Take it back to where you purchased it, and get them to replace it, under warranty.

> software problem

No. It shows-up in "disk-management" as a recognized, but not-yet-initialized, device.
Thus, all the software to support it has been correctly loaded.

Exercise the warranty.

When I plug my 320G WD Elements there is no WD icon on my windows or my computer window. thanks


Have you used this HDD before?, it this is the first time?

Sometimes you have to install the WD Smartware Software. In the case of the 320G, which are the first HDD released, The computer should detect them automatically.

Try with another USB port. Do not use a USB multiport because it won't power the HD.

If it doesn't work on your computer, try it on another one. This way you can discard the possibility that the HDD is damaged.

God BLess You!!!

try removing all the cards from the expansion slots and remove the ram sticks. disconnect the drive cables from the board but dont touch the cpu or power connectors. Now hit the button. If nothing changes, probable board fault. If it now boots up and starts beeping ( which it will when no ram sticks installed) shut it down and reinstall each drive connector, ram stick and card one at a time booting between each item. when the faulty item is connected, the board will stop booting and you can replace that item. Many things can also cause this. Bad connections to ram sticks and video cards, damaged usb port connections, failed cpu's, failed psu's etc.. You may still have to take the machine to a professional repairer to have the problem diagnosed.

Gpx mp3 player downloads


i dont know the exact model. but there should be a usb cable that came with it. you should then plug the usb cable into the mp3 player and then plug it into the usb port on your computer. at which point on your computer it should have a popup notification recognizing a expansion drive. such as C: would be your hard drive and D: your cd/dvd rom. open the newly formed expansion drive and you can just copy the mp3's to the mp3 player.
