I pulled the seagate 2.5"


Hello,

When you use external adapters to plug drives into USB ports the drive needs to be set for mast not slave. The internal drive is one one channel and external drive is on a different channel so neither drive is a slave, both are masters with not slave drive present. Try removing the jumper you installed and try the drive, it should be seen because all windows XP or later do not need drivers for USB drives.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Seagate barracuda external 500 gb hard drive usb not seen any longer,cables and power okay , tried on three computers


Verify what Drives have been detected by your Operating System by using Windows: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk(s) will be displayed with all existing partitions and any assigned drive letters.
Your external (or internal) drive must be recognized as having formatted partitions that have a drive letter assigned to each required partition.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Cannot power on Seagate Freeagent Desk external hard drive


Hi,

Hope this has only been used for backups, and not as a primary storage. The best way to trouble shoot something like this is to purchase a USB/SATA adapter. You will need to dissemble the device and take out the hard drive. Connect it to the USB/SATA adapter to see if the drive spins up and can be seen by the PC. This will let you know if the drive is OK and whether the fault is related to the external bay electrices or the drive itself.

Good luck, you can get the USB/SATA devices quite cheap off of eBay.

Cheers,
Ripface.

Seagate 750GB usb HDD asks to format,when opening by double click


The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.

External Harddrive Ignorance...


I've seen this happen with hubs being connected to external hard drives before.

Do you have a free usb port on the back of your computer you can plug it into?

That should fix the problem.
