I am having Seagate Free Agent Go Flex and its not running on the computer just making sound errors.

Hello abhi_1998s,
This usually indicates a bad hard drive. If you are hearing grinding and its not connecting to your computer, check your warranty. If you're hearing it connect to the machine then disconnect, try a different cable. If this does not work, contact the manufacturer's technical support because it could be a known issue.
If you need to recover data from the drive please halt from any further use of the drive. Hearing grinding noises is a very serious issue if you're going to attempt data recovery.
Hope this helps!

On low it makes a really loud grinding noise the higher you turn up the speed the slower it becomes.

It sounds like the Worm Gear is going out. The faster the motor runs,
the more damages the Center Gear is grinding away the teeth of the
Worm Gear. Things start to slow down, and eventually they will come
to a halt. It's time to replace the Worm Gear. Also make sure to use
new fresh Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease with the new replacement.

The spindle or shaft turning the drum may be bad. The motor as well could be slowly but surely grinding to a halt.

Turntable grinds to a halt.

The Technics SL-BD22 is a belt driven turntable. It is most likely possible that the belt wore off, wore down, or could have spun off. The platter should have 2 holes in it. One of them should alow you to see, and replace the belt. YOu can lift the platter off the turntable via those two holes. MAKE SURE IT IS TURNED OFF AND UNPLUGGED......

You can find a replacement @

And the part should come with instructions. Those guys are very thorough.

Keep me posted.
