First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
If your harddrive still not recognized then you need to repair your harddrive.Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa

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.

Install seagate expansion


New drives have to be readied for use. Try Start > Run (aka Search in Win 7) type dskmgmt.msc. Look for your drive there. It should be without a drive letter. Right clicking will give you the options of initializing, creating disc partitions, and assigning logical drives. If this seems a little daunting. A wizard should load. If not there is refresh icon on the tool bar. You may want break down the 1TB down to a few partition because of the large size.

> 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.

My seagate 1tb external harddrive is not recognised by my laptop. system is windows vista


Is it recognized when connecting to another computer?

If not, then either:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the casing has failed,
* the disk-drive inside the casing has failed.

If the former, then disassemble the case, and remove the disk-drive,
and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer,
to see if the files on the disk-drive are still accessible.

If the unit is still under warranty, exercise the warranty, to get a replacement.

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.
