Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)

Have a FreeAgent Go Data Mover (portable HD) purchased this morning but it will not install as a plug and play ... OS xp pro.
Light keep flashing on new drive. "After your data mover lights up, a dialogue window will appear and tell you what to do next." THIS does not happen. NOT a 250 GB but a 120GB

If your USB ports do not supply enough power (older computers) then the drive may fail to show up in My Computer.
The Seagate should have a special Y cable. There are two USB connectors on one end that must both plug into your computer - one for data and power - the other for power only. The other end of the cable has the mini USB which plugs into the Seagate.

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.

Seagate 120GB 2.5" with USB 2.0 HDD external Case


Did you try reinstalling the drivers and software for it? I have a Seagate FreeAgent drive and once it went to sleep, it did that exact same thing. I kept playing with it, and rebooting the PC and it finally woke up. On the FreeAgent I was able to then tell it never to sleep again.
