No power on psu when Hardrive connected

There is no power when I connect my Seagate 120gb hardrive. I use another drive and it works fine. I think my 120gb hardrive got grounded on power signal... does anyone experience this..

Yes, I actually experienced it too about 2 months ago. I believe there is short in the board. I have a 200gb barracuda that failed (too soon) and I swapped the boards...just to see what would happen. I was able to recreate the other drives problem and vice-versa. I think if I could get my hands on a working barracuda(if there are any) I could recover my info. curse of the 7200.7's Good Luck, Tim

I connect my seagate external hardrive to my xbox to store some data on it because my xbox does not have an internal hardrive. So i figured i can use my portable external hardrive to my xbox, and it said i...

Either you have 50 gigs of stuff on there or your hard drive space is not being properly read. U might need to reformat the drive if necessary.
Meanwhile your xbox electronics may have a limit on the size of space - so if the drive has 200 gigs of space on it and your unit will only recognize 32 gigs, then that is all it sees and can use. Capiche?

The light on the hardrive is blinking faster than normal and i couldnt connect to my laptop, it was working fine 2 mins before, i think its because i forgot to safety remove before i plug out.

This kind of behavior of a Portable Hard Disc, may be due to some reasons :-


Most probable cause is the Virus / Malware in the PC or Laptop.

Second cause is USB slot of PC or Laptop is corrupt or not properly installed.

The last cause is the Data Cable is not right.

Externalseagate 250go not open how to solve

If you cannot open or see the harddrive when you connect it to your computer after it is powered on then that is the external harddrive itself. First, check if the power connection is connected and the usb cord connect correctly. Then see if any lights come on on the external hard drive. If lights does come on and still nothing showing or coming on to the computer, then your harddrive is history. Seagate makes one of the worstest hardrive. You can google this up about seagate promblem and there are thousand out there who have this same promblem. I know this because I have the same promblem you have.

16 GB is the maximum USB storage the XBox will allow, but you may have up to two devices connected at the same time (which means nothing for your current situation, sorry). This is Microsoft's way of saying you should've opted for the larger internal hard drive.

Seagate Barracuda external hardrive - damage to usb connector on

Assuming the drive itself is still ok (it sounds like it would be), then yes, you can put the drive into another case or directly into the motherboard if you know how to do that.
