Seagate barracuda7200.7 ultra ata 40gb is not detected by my pc,I tried to format it by windows xp boot CD,still it was not detected,system notified that there is no hard disk installed in your system

For a hard drive to even be detected it has to spin - if not spinning it is kaput and needs to be replaced. Make sure that the unit is receiving power before you do anything drastic.

How to retrieve a password or change the password for a wireless network from the router Get an ethernet cable and plug your computer to the router with it..Click on your browser and in the address bar type the IP address for your particular router. (You can find this by googling the make and model of your router and the words IP ADDRESS.) you will then be presented with the page after which you will have access to the router's control software. The page asks for username and password, they should, if they have not been altered from default, both be the word admin Having entered these and pressed the enter button you should be in the control menus. Look for the wireless networking option, find it , click on it and you should find yourself in a screen on which your network's ID, (also known as SSID,) and password are displayed. There may or may not be the option of turning the radio / wireless section off temporarily...if it is available click on it to stop the wireless from broadcasting...if the option is not listed it obviously cannot be done! Next, highlight the network password and delete it, then insert your new password, making a note of it and remembering that it will be case sensitive. Make sure you SAVE THE CHANGES Next ... If you have shut wireless/radio down reactivate it. Then exit the utility. Advanced users might want to create a password for getting into the router. Anyway,after having exited detach the ethernet lead and click on your browser and click on the wireless networking/connection icon in the system tray, highlight your network and click on the connect button. You will then be presented with the option of entering your new password which should be entered exactly as you wrote it when in the router. You should, after a wait of a few seconds, be connected to the internet. Hide the new password and your ethernet cable if you have not put a new admin password on the router. Then, BOBS YOUR UNCLE.

How do I delete all files on my Freeagent 320gb

really, ALL? use the quickest and simplest way is: remove all partitions on your HD then create a new ones with different sizes. But, if you're concerned with the content and want data to get completely wiped out then there're different procedures (depending on the level of your concerns).

My seagate hard drive wont switch on when I connect it to the computer

I am assuming you are referring to an external hard drive. This is becoming a more commonplace occurrence now that there are more and more of these devices out there and they are starting to age slightly. The drives inside these enclosures are the very same drives you will find in desktop and/or laptop computers, depending upon the physical size of the drive enclosure. Unfortunately, the majority of these enclosures
  1. provide very poor shock protection
  2. provide almost no ventilation (cooling)
Add to that the fact that they have an additional circuit board inside to convert from SATA to USB which has an unacceptably high failure rate, and you have a recipe for disaster. All is not lost, however. If your drive is still under warranty, you can get it repaired or replaced.....with the great possibility of losing any and data that was on it. Most folks don't like this option. You can crack open the case and remove the hard drive within. You can then insert it in a docking station or install it in a desktop PC and try to recover your files. More and more folks are getting upset with the shorter life span and even shorter warranty of the SATA drives being manufactured today. There was a time when manufacturers routinely warranted their drives for five years. Today most only have a one year warranty...a few go as high as three. You'll pay a bit more for the three year drive though. Makes me yearn for the old PATA drives......

How do i format 1 tb seagate ,and how do i use it after to store my data from my desktop windows xp computer

http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ Try to download the bundle of software from this link. This will be in ISO format probably. Write it on a CD /DVD. You can get your answer after booting with this CD. Choose proper options so that you can sure format your 1` TB HDD. I did it, or you can connect this HDD to another HDD as slave and can format this 1TB HDD.

I have a Seagate external hard drive model # 9w6044-540. I need to know what kind of drive it has, how many gigs it is and what size disc it uses.

If you take it out of the case, there will be a sticker on the drive with all the info. I do know it's quite a few years old tho. Somewhere around 160 gig I think.

Mode not supported on Samsung TV after new desktop hard drive installed

If you read through your HDTVs manual you will find that it only supports FAT32 ~ maybe also NTFS. Mac OS Extended Journal (HFS+) is a proprietary file system and even a Windows PC can't read it without the appropriate tools or drivers installed ~ let alone a TV. I'm afraid you will have to reformat your Hard Drive * This will delete all data on the drive 1. open up Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/) 2. select your external drive ("1TB WD Elements" or whatever it is called) 3. click on the Partition tab 4. select the following settings: Partition Layout: 1 Partition Format: MS-DOS (FAT) the name will change to "UNTITLED" but you can change it to whatever you want click the Options button at the bottom and select "Master Boot Record" When everything is set click Apply at the bottom right. Again, this will delete all data from the drive so you will want to backup it beforehand.

How do I get my Seagate Backup Plus to return my information to my computer?

When you back up a copy of your files or images, they are copied to your back up medium, they are not removed from the computer . If you have deleted them they can reinstalled from the back up.

I had a computer shop clean up some malware from my computer, not my computer doesn't recognize my Seagate external drive (model st30000cb). I am on Windows 7. Can you help?

Try turning off your firewall and installing it at that point. Once it is back in the mix turn your firewall back on.

The blue light keeps flashing on and off on my Seagate 4Tb XHD. It won't show up on the finder as connected. What causes that?

follow these steps:
  1. Make sure the computer and external hard drive are powered on.
  2. Safely remove the drive from the computer (if possible).
  3. Disconnect the external drive's USB or FireWire cable.
  4. Disconnect the power supply plug from the external drive.
  5. Power off the computer.
  6. Disconnect the computer's power supply cord for 60 seconds.
  7. Reconnect the computer.
  8. Power on the computer.
  9. Connect the power supply to the external drive.
  10. Connect the drive's USB or FireWire cable and check for detection.
If that does not correct the behavior, and if the drive is also not detected by your computer, the blinking light is probably a symptom of a larger problem. If those steps do not return the drive to correct function, it is very possible, even probable, that the drive has failed and needs to be replaced
