HDD not detected

Seagate [ST94011A NOTEBOOK HDD] is not detected. when the hdd is connected to the computer by means of USB cable the LED is 'ON' and the disc rotates with a great sound which is not heard earlier. Thus the device is not working and it is not detected in the windows explorer also.

Toshiba Canvio 1 TB connection problem - physical layer issue may be on cable or on HDD mini-USB port itself


More than likely, this is some sort of fault in the logic of the external enclosure. The solid light indicates that the drive is powered and is awaiting access while the blinking light means that it is busy working. If you are unable to get the drive to do anything (whether reading data from the drive or storing data to the drive), then I would guess that it is time to see whether you still have warranty coverage on the drive and, if so, get it replaced under warranty.

In my experience, I have found that Toshiba drives are very unreliable and therefore would recommend that you replace it with a Seagate if this drive no longer has any warranty coverage. Of all the drive manufacturers, I have found Seagate drives to be the most stable and reliable. Others may recommend Western Digital but I replace failed Western Digital drives on a constant basis in my computer repair business each and every week while Seagates keep on going. I base my recommendation on being in business now for over 25 years.

My seagate freeagent 1tb is blinking whit lights and my computer does not recognize it. Help me


***Please NOTE***
Touch the drive and put your ear to it, to test if the drive is spinning and working. Do this while it is powered on. Also, try disconnecting the USB cable, reboot the computer, re-connect USB cable to another USB port on computer. If you still have the same issue, try the below solutions.
  • Make sure the computer and external hard drive are powered on.
  • Disconnect the external drive's USB or the eSATA cable, which ever one you're using.
  • Disconnect the power supply plug from the external drive.
  • Power off the computer.
  • Disconnect the computer's power supply cord for 60 seconds.
  • Reconnect the computer.
  • Power on the computer.
  • Connect the power supply to the external drive.
  • Connect the drive's USB or the eSATA cable and check for detection.
If the still no detection and still blinking lights on the drive, check the power supply to the drive.
Check to see what the led light on the power supply is doing.
If it's blinking, power down the drive, unplug data cable and then reconnect the power supply to another electrical outlet. If it still blinks repeatedly, then you power supply is bad.
If the led is solid (lit and not blinking) follow the same steps from above to connect it to another outlet.
Next, plug the power supply to the external drive and power it up.
If the power supply starts to blink repeatedly, then your controller board inside the enclosure is bad.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you.

Turn your computer off.
Disconnect the power cord.
Disconnect all other disk-drives and CD/DVD drives, leaving only the "suspect" drive connected.
Restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP, and see if the drive is detected, and how it is connected (primary/secondary, master/slave).

Read the model-number and serial-number and manufacture-date on the disk's label,
and access Seagate's web-site, to check the warranty-status of the drive.
If the warranty is valid, Seagate will replace the drive, at minimal cost to you.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

Hard drive replacement


I'll put it like this; The fact that it's and Ultra ATA 100 interface and that it's a 5400 RPM drive is somwhat of a concern.. Don't know if your laptop will support the 5400 RPM speed, but the good news is,it won't hurt your laptop to try it.
Also, I don't think the Ultra ATA 100 interface will be a problem, maybe require you to change BIOS setting (maybe).
