My external usb hdd showing unknown device


If the unit has mains power, check that it is getting it. Also if it comes with two usb plugs then make sure both are plugged into usb ports on your pc. Try the unit on someone elses pc/laptop. if it works on theirs then your pc has a problem with the usb ports.

I'm sorry my enlish verry littl. Mi HDD Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive No runing. I chenj cabl


Hi. Is the power light on the drive on? Is it flashing (this indicates an error)? If it is check the usb port you are using. You cannot use a usb hub, a usb port on a monitor or any other port that is not directly connected to the computers power supply. If you are using a dock make sure that both of the plugs are connected to powered usb ports. I could not get this drive to run until I plugged it into the right port. Use only the short cable that comes with the drive or the dock that is made to use with the drive. I hope this suggestion helps.

Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)


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.
