Does it need to charge first? Before I can access it?


external hard drives get their power mostly from the usb connection
you will however need to download a driver after you plug the usb lead into the computer
it is even possible that when you connect the usb up you will get a balloon in the bottom right of the task bar referring to looking for a driver for installed hard drive

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

if your computers motherboard is older than 5yrs and does not have 2 gb of ram it will not support windows 7 also since you have removed your hard drive you must have moved the leads attached

one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Hi hourston,
Not sure what you mean by "remove" but this is what I would try if it were me.
I would disconnect the drive from the computer. Go to the Device Manager (start > right click "My Computer" > click on Device Manager > click the + in front of Disk Drives. When you find the drive, uninstall the drivers. Shut your computer completely off. Boot the pc back up, and shut it down once again. Plug the HDD back in and reboot. It should be plug and play and reinstall.
Just checked Microsoft's website, says it is Windows compatible with no action required (Plug and Play)
Hope that helps...

Hard drive not recognized by my computor . When you plug the drive into the USB, you hear the upload tone but the icon does not appear in the "My Computor" screen. Therefore I cannot access the files...


Hello

Follow these steps and you should be able to fix your problem.

Go to:

Start
control panel
Administrative tools
computer management
Storage
Disc management

Now you should be able to see your drive in the schematic below. Right click the drive you cannot see in My computer and choose the option to change drive letters or paths. Now if there is no drive letter that is assigned to the drive it will not show in my computer, now just assign a letter, restart, and it should work.

Hope this can be of help.

Best regards
Andrea
