Check that the power-brick is supplying power to the disk-drive.

Check that the "data" cable between the computer and the device is tightly connected, at both ends. Try a different cable.

Disassemble the casing, and remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer. If it is detected, then it is the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, inside the case, which has failed.

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

Windows xp will not recognise the seagate freeagent desktop drive


Assuming you have tried other usb ports and had no change,remove the usb connection, then go back into device manager and select the usb controller, right click and select delete as this will erase any input driver the usb port recognises. Restart the pc and then the controller should be reinstalled automatically as it sounds as though the controller has become corrupt for some reason. Go back into device manager and check there are no exclamation marks, reconnect the drive and see if it's recognised.

Seagate barracuda + usb harddrive enclosure cant access hard dive


First, neither of the links work. The amazon shows a power adapter and the Seagate defaults to their home page. But I think I get the idea. You purchased a usb drive enclosure and a new hard drive and now it doesn't work.

The problem is that the hard drive has not been initiated, formatted or assigned a drive letter.
Plug in the drive
Click on the Start button
Right click on Computer
Select Manage
A screen opens, click on Disk Management
All the drives known and unknown will appear on the right.
Find the drive that says unknown, right click over the text and select Initialize Disk.
When done, right click the blank space to the right labelled Unallocated and select new simple volume then follow the steps to format and assign a drive letter.
If you are only going to be using this drive on this computer then format ntfs, if it maybe be connected to other devices including Mac, you may want to use fat32 or exfat.
Whats the Difference Between FAT32 exFAT and NTFS
