    Can your computer detect the hard drive? Check the Device Manager to see if it can be detected.

First of all, check it with partition magic 8 and reformat if the partitions show in this software. And secondly, try to connect with another PC or it may the problem with your data cable but its chances are very low.

Please try with my above two options at least I assure you that your problem will resolve.

you can contact me for further more details

Best of Luck

My Seagate Freeagent Goflex 1Tb external USB hard disk is not detected when connected. but the light on the diskdrive comes on. Pls advise.


Hello Gravi,

Please try one of the following options.

Try different USB ports.
If that didnt work, then try updating/reinstalling your USBdrivers.
Try after these options a reboot first.

Also take a look at this page where some driver problem for your specific harddrive are explained!

I am trying to format my FreeAgent GoFlex 500 GB to FAT32, but the only options available to me are NTFS, and exFAT. How do I format it to FAT32?


The problem is that Windows doesn't format anything larger than 32GB as FAT32. You need to use a specific tool to do so. Have a look at this website

Hi,how can i format my seagate freeagent goflex 750 to fat32 ?


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Once you connect the harddrive on the computer go to my computer or computer then right click on the seagate drive then select format. On the window that will pop out on the screen select Fat32 then format the drive. Please use windows xp or 7 because vista don't have fat32 but exfat.
Thanks

Seagate freeagent goflex 750 put some movies onto it no problem ,but my tv, or bluray usb doesnt recognise it .any ideas?


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Can you pleae provide the make and model of the blueray device so that we can check if the file format of the blueray device is NTFS or FAT32. By default external hard drive is set to NTFS. A good example of this one is a PS3. Ps3 can only detect a hard drive that is a Fat32 fotmat so incase you connect a NTFS hard drive it wont detect it.
Thanks

You will have to send it to a data recovery company in order to retrive the data sounds like the circuit board failed therefore the drive is not receiving power.Usually if this board is good you would hear the drive spin up.
Good luck
