I was using seagate hardisk...after sometime it continously produces abnormal sound.I asked an expert and he said that my hardisk is dead.So i bought a new one.Now when i start my computer after some hours...


Possibly but if the noise is back again after replacing the disk, I would check into overheating. If you have access to an air compressor, blow out the case, fans, heatsinks, and power supply. Block the fan blades before cleaning fans as you do not want to over spin the fans which might damage the bearings.

Was the disk an external as your posting indicates? or an internal drive?

Hi i have got seagate Go 500gb when i connected to my computer it say that insert a disk into your Usb .i would like to know how can i fix it


Can you give any more information? What kind of PC? Age of PC? How old is the external drive? is the drive new? Esata is different then USB. Make sure you are connecting to an eSATA port on the computer. Newer laptops usually have a shared eSATA and USB port.

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.

yah you must buy a Y-USB cable for your external hardisk. this is connection both ends are one is for hardisk and the other two cable is for USB slot of computer. why it two wires connection to usb because one wire is for Data and the other is for Power. If doesn't work..it might be a problem in your Operating system. i recommend to you to reinstall your Windows OS.. theres a 4 reasons why it happen appear the error... deffective USB cable..corrupted driver of USB device for seagate, virus infected of your systems..and maybe your hardive is deffective. Please rate if this is HELPFUL..thanks

External 500gb hard drive not readable


Check the partition size in Disk Management (if running Win7 - download a free Partition Manager if not) and see if the system is seeing the partition correctly. Seagate has recovery software available on their website but you may just have to repartition and reformat.

When i connect my seagate via usb nothing comes up on my pc, the light comes on on the external h/d but nothing pops up on the pc? help please i need precious photos on it. thanks


have you try connect your pen drive to the same usb port, is it working?
If Pendrive is working but not the Seagate hardisk. Most propably is your USB power is not enough to support the External Seagate hard disk, you need to supply more power to the Seagate hard disk by using USB Y cable(1 end connect to Seagate hardisk where the other end got 2 USB connector to connect to your PC).
