You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.

I have a seagate barracuda 7200.12, 500 GB, HDD, as suddenly it is not working nothing is showing up, some type of clicking sound is also coming from it. the computer detects the hdd, but nothing is...


If you have another computer, you could try to plug it in there as a slave/secondary drive so that you can try to see if My Computer would still recognize it. If it works, then great, you can still do backups. If not, and you really need that data, you might want to get the services of a data recovery company.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 EIDE 160 GB. Computer does not recogniz


Hello

If you plug it in and windows states that the device could not be recognized, try plugging it in in one of the USB ports in the back of your case, This worked for me.

If you just can't see your HD in my computer, try these following steps.
Go to:
Conrtol panel
Administrative tools
Computer management
Storage
Disc management

Now you should see see the drive in the schematic below, then right click on the drive and assign a new drive letter.
Restart, and all should be set.

If this does not work, have a look at the jumper settings on the drive itself. For this you must take the hard drive out of the case again.
Hope this works. Please rate this.

Best regards

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 Not being recognized


Clicking is not good. You need to contact IOMEGA SUPPORT on their web site and run through the troubleshooting steps then call for possible warranty action. The clicking is consistent with a failed hard drive. If you can remove the hard drive to read the part number and serial number, contact SEAGATE on their web site and go through the troubleshooting procedure for a possible warranty replacement. All hard drive manufacturers will cheerfully replace drives still under warranty if you carefully follow their procedures. Good Luck!
