Hi.. i need help.. my external hdd transcend store jet 320gb have problem... when I conect HDD to pc blue led blink just one time and hdd stop working..


Check that the USB cable can provide enough power to the hdd. Check that the USB port is powered. Older USB slots may not have enough power to run larger external HDDs, there you may require separate power to be plugged into the hdd. Are you using the original USB cable provided with the external HDD?

Hdd power problem


Hi!

Check your HDD with HDD monitor utility to see if it's ok. You can try this one:

If your HDD has bad SMART or power controller or smth like that - then you definitely need to replace HDD.
Also issue may be caused by your PC power supply or motherboard power controller. If HDD monitor shows that your hard drive is "alive", then try to "hang" your HDD to another power cord from your PC power supply and try to connect to other IDE/SATA port on your motherboard.

Also I'd suggest you to try your HDD on any other PC.

Fantom hard drive Flashing LED - Unreadable


Hello,

As for known problems, this sounds like a failure in one of the circuit boards, either the one on the hard drive or the USB conversion board. If it is off warranty, the simplest method to test this is to transfer the drive into a new enclosure which you should be able to do at any PC shop.

If the drive works in the new drive enclosure then you're good to go. If it doesn't then you will likely need to replace it and if there is important data on the drive enlist a pro to recover the data.

Try the swap and let me know how you make out, if the results are indicating the need for a pro then reply with your Country, State and City and I will point you to an appropriate pro near you.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

New Seagate FreeAgentPro USB eSATA 500GB power on light not glows


Thank you for your reply.

I have solved the problem with local help.

Printed installation manual of Seagate 500 GB eSATA external hard drive has not properly mentioned how to use power on/off switch once connected to mains. I could get local help, who has already used the device. On/Off switch to be pressed for few seconds after mains connected, sometimes it comes automatically once power is on and USB cable pluged to the USB port of PC if power supply is ok. There is no indicator for the power supply (before device glows) after connected to the mains. I was in confusion whether power supply is ok or not.

Finally, It was found that the problem was with mains power supply and I have changed the power socket and adapter.
