This sounds more like a Microsoft .Net framework error.

what made you think it was the drive?

The Seagate drive doesn't seem to have a Web interface, so Safari can't connect to it. It looks like you need to load the Seagate Media app on your MacBook.

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.

Remove the drive. Everything you need to know is on the sticker.

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.

Need make and model
His TV may not play video, the USB connection may not work for storage only firmware updates....so many potential issues and you don't give enough info.

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).

A RAID is a collection of hard drives, at least 2. This all in one system is a desktop PC
The answer is NO.

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......

If you run windows, go to:

Control Panel > Folder Options > "View" Tab > Check " View Hidden Files" & UnCheck "Hide Protected Operating System Files"

Then open your GoFlex and see what is in there.

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.

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.

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.

Some have a external power cord plug it in to a power point .others are powered up by the USB port. Connect it to a USB port and power it up . The computer will find it as a hard drive and give it a name. Click on my computer and you will find it there. It can be used to save programs on or for back up ECT.
