I am using the seagate external memory with my dish reciver to back up movies I have recorded was going to add some more but I get an error message saying there is a problem with the transfer also all of...

I would have to assume that a "Seagate external memory" is actually a Hard Drive. If so then you need to note what sort of Port or interface connection it is using. USB / Firewire or a direct connection cable of some sort. Note also the size (capacity) of the drive. You have probably loaded it up so full that it can't function.
The ideal situation would be to connect this drive to a computer and try and recover your files. You need to know what the drive was formatted for. Check the manual. Was it Fat32, NTFS, Mac OS Extended (Journaled) etc or some proprietary receiver format.
Does the dish receiver have the format (erase) utility on board. If the PC or Mac can see the drive on a USB port then you may be able to recover your movies.
If not... You can always format the drive or completely erase all data and set it up for use again. Or you can replace the drive with any number of different brands of drive, maybe even with larger capacity.
Most drives all use ATA or the newer SATA type connector internally. They are all interchangeable. So WD (WesternDigital) Hitachi, Seagate, etc will all work the same way. (All of them have to be able to plug in to different brands of computers. Mac or PC.
Without further info, it's hard to suggest anything else.
Good Luck

Hello! I recently bought a samsung portable

The software is telling you one thing and the Webmaster another. I would trust what the software error is saying to you. I can't even register my Samsung Tab 3 on their site, it asked me to enter the purchase date which I did, 11/16/13. When I tried submitting the form, I got an error telling me the Tab 3 was manufactured 11/30/13, making my purchase date incorrect. Really??!!! My Best Buy receipt didn't lie and I was there at the store that very day, and had purchased the Tab 3.

Drive manager is grey and says that no drive is attatched.

You need to get a Seagate Harddisk Utility software to check the disk intergrity.

Although hardware issues like can sometimes be very difficult to fix due to the impact on a volatile component on the harddisk which are most times not replaceable

My external hard drive is unreadable

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

I can't move ANYTHING onto the hard drive

In order to properly access the full capacity of an ATA interface hard drive or partition larger than 137GB and properly support 48-bit logical block addressing, Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 are required. This issue does not affect SCSI hard drives. Your os x10.3 is not compatible:)
