Question about Seagate (ST9100801U2-RK) (9W3638556) 100 GB Hard Drive
I bought a Fantom Titanium II 200GB External Hard Drive earlier this year. I have an iMac G5 with Mac OSX Tiger installed. It worked fine for the first few months, but this summer, it stopped showing up on my computer all together. I thought maybe it was one of my Mac updates, but after doing some research on that and a whole lot of fiddling, I realized it wasn't that. I've spent the last few months trying to figure out and troubleshoot the problem, but I have no idea what to do.
It doesn't even recognize it when it's plugged in for me to access it on Apple's Disk Utility to reformat it. Any ideas?
i have a seagate 100gb drive that has worked seamlessly for ages, but now it will not show up on my computer, i really need it as a lot of my work is on there. can anyone help?
I have tried to re-map the drive but if it doesn't show up I can't tell the computer what 'folder' to look into. any help is much appreciated
Like Guest above, exactly....

i,m not too much up on Macs.
But i,m going to try my best to help you, as i do have a wide knowledge of windows operating systems.
I,d firstly suggest looking in the device manager, at what usb devices are set and configured. as the external drive is looking for a vacant usb port. try the drive(s) in another usb port if you have one. Why i state this, is that the usb slot could be configured to look for another/alternative device.
Secondly if you look in the device manager, to establish whether you have any devices conflicting. Then i,d suggest updating any drivers relating to the USB hubs where possible.
Also check in the Bios, to ensure the USB ports are enabled, this could have been changed with a software update or computer virus.
Finally try a double USB to single cable, 2x usb plugs one end, to single in the hard-drive end, i suffered a problem which the hard-drive did,nt get enough power from a single cable.
I hope this helps you resolve your problems.
