This sounds most likely like there is media/platter damage occurring if you feel the motor turning. Nothing you can fix on your own, you need a professional with a clean room to examine the issue.

Don't know if you still need it but I have one that I pulled from a Seagate backup drive that I just scrapped. I've listed it on eBay, search for: Seagate 100FC02 USB/AC ADAPTER INPUT To SATA PCB

Run checkdisk and let it fix errors. That may recover your partition table. Windows keeps 2, one as a backup.

Download testdisk and run it to see if it recognised in the list. If so use the intel option to find a boot sector

Claire, Have you tried connecting the drive to another computer using Windows 7 or later. You could try chkdisk /f at a command prompt or get the testdisk app to identify deeper issues with the drive. Chappo07

You might be able to swap the drive to the other portable drive. Or, if you have a slot in your PC, put it in there. If it runs normally, the PS is shot (wouldn't be the first). Either get a new case with PS, or keep it in the PC. You can power it down when you're not using it. It's also possible the drive is bad. Find the HDD diagnostic tool in your OS and check it out.

Try to copy something else to it, if that does not work you have something wrong with the computer or drive. If so rip to your hard drive then move over to the external drive.
