Computer does not recognize Seagate is attached...need to open the Seagate case and check wiring.


Before you open it (and void your warranty), check to see if it works on another computer. If not the HD is most likely dead, and if you still want to open it up you will probably need a security bit set.

This is a good read on what this error actually means:

My seagate freeAgent go 250GB is not working. it keeps on flashing when i connected it to my usb


If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

My western digital external hardrive will not appear on my computer any hints for me please.


Does it show up as a drive in the Device Manager?

You might look in Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

Go in Disk Management along the left side...

You might have to make it into a Basic Disk ... before it gets a drive letter. Trying to remember what I just did in Vista when I got a Seagate FreeAgent external USB drive. Mine was already NTFS formatted, I would imagine yours would be too.

Reformat seagate 120gb portable harddisk - freeagent


Hi johnsil,

If the drive shows up in MY COMPUTER then the easy way to format the drive is right-clicking on it then choosing FORMAT. This will erase everything in the drive, so make sure to back up everything in the drive before formatting it.

Now if the drive doesn't show up in MY COMPUTER you may have to goto the Control Panel click on Administrative Tools then select Computer Management then click on the category of "STORAGE", you should see there Disk Management. Carefully look there for your Seagate 120GB Freeagent drive, right-click then choose format, and that should format the drive.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
