Question about Seagate (9Y7275557) 400 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Will not power up.

I used my ext. hard drive to put all of my cd's on. then when I bought a few more cd's I wanted to put them on my hard drive.

When I power it up a blue light will appear. But when I try now nothing happens.
I think I feel it moving inside but not 100 % sure.

Can this be fixed ? Do I need to take it somewhere?

Well what happened to it? if it fell then chances are that you will not be able to fix it, due to the fact that harddrives have a shock or Gforce limit should a shock exceed that limit that the internal components will get damaged. getting it fixed is possible but will cost a small fortune due to the equipment necessary there are places where you can get it fixed. where about are you located?

My external hard drive is not being seen by my computer?


1 of 2 things can be wrong...1 (cable may be loose) unplug the cable (ext HD) connected to pc, now reinsert back into pc..try this once or twice...until you see it appear in my computer....if this is not working and your ext HD came with a CD software..uninstall (make sure ext HD is not connected) software, then reinstall make sure your firewall allows it to be connected....this should do the trick...now plug HD back up to pc...do not format your ext hd unless you really really dont want the data on it (format erases everything)

I bought a new WD Elements 350gb external hard drive and it came with a Memeo software CD. It says to insert CD before starting backup. I do not appear to be able to use this external hard drive as a plug...


This software is not linked with the drive (with this particular drive you only get a trial version anyway). Just remove the software from your PC.

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Remove Memeo/ WD Anywhere Backup.

Once you have done that, you can delete everything on it (assuming you never manually put something on it apart from the backup). If so, back it up onto your PC, another drive or CD.

Western digital my book 1tb freezing while using itunes


Some times with external USB drives you have to remove both the power and the USB cable from the drive, wait like 30 sec. then connect it back up. I know it sounds trivial but see if that helps thing. There was some forum chatter I heard a little big ago about the 1tb WD my books concerning the power supply and this type of behavior. You might want to check with WD to see if they have a recall on your power supply.

Power Supply possibly bleuw up due to overload


Bring it to a PC repair centre, the disk inside the case may be okay and may be able to be read if its removed and put into a PC. Worth a shot.

If you are having issues accessing the drive i've encountered that situation before

I tried a different cord and it started working again. Additionally i've had this work for me (see below)

Try This:


  1. Unplug all USB devices
  2. Turn off Ext Hard drive
  3. Shut down computer
  4. Power on ext hard drive (then wait like 1 min)
  5. Turn on computer
  6. Wait for windows to finish loading
  7. Plug in the USB cord from the ext hard drive to your computer (may take up to a minute for computer to recognize it)
  8. If it doesn't recognize it then keep trying it in different USB ports
If it still won't recognize get all the latest windows update and reboot. If that doesn't solve your issue try your external hard drive on some other computers, check to see if drive needs special drivers installed (which most don't).

From SimpleTech's website: "1) I have the drive plugged in but I cannot find the drive in "My Computer", why?
The most likely cause would be not enough power provided by a single USB port on your computer. Unplug the portable drive from the cable and unplug the cable from the computer. Now, plug the cable into 2 USB ports directly on your computer. (If you have a desktop, you should plug the USB cable directly into the USB ports on the back of the computer. If this is a laptop, you should plug directly into a USB ports on the computer. Do not plug into a USB hub or docking station). Then plug the drive into the cable. In a few seconds you should see the drive listed in the "My Computer" window as a SimpleDrivePS."

If all that fails you need to RMA (Return to Manufacturer) your external hard drive. Most hard drives have a pretty decent warranty on them. Your simpletech 250GB has a 3 year warranty on it. Info on the warranty can be found at http://www.simpletech.com/support/warranty/. If you want to RMA it, click the "Technical Support / RMA Request" on the left hand side of that page.
