if you have the connection available try to hook it up as an internal drive. My thought is that it may be formatted differently ... like a 32 bit NPFS not a 64? - if this thought is correct - try someone elses computer.. that is older or newer than yours. also if you have a Linux CD that you can run that should open your drive with no worries LOVE OPEN SOURCE !!! here is a bit that I found on Microsoft - not sure if it will help but you can give it a try: Open Computer and right click your External Hard Drive. b. Go to Properties > Security. c. Click Edit under a quote "To change permissions, click Edit." d. Click Add. Type in "everyone" in the white box. e. Then check in the box "Full Control". Press OK.

Well u might have a broken drive. Id strip the drive out of the casing install it in a new one and see if that works. If that doesnt and you absolutely need the data from it. Data recovery firm is really the only way to do it. Always backup just incase a drove fails

Reinstall the USB drivers, by uninstalling them in Device Manager, then reboot.

Seagate External HDD not working?

Seagate Expansion-Portable-1TB-Model-SRD00F1 My hard drive doesnt even show up on my laptop (windows) and also it used to vibrate when it was plugged in and it is silent. The only thing my hard drive does when plugged in is flash this blue light. Help meeeeeeeee please :( 10 points to who makes my hard drive work Edit: also i tried turning on/off my laptop + ive tried other laptops + other usb ports + a different cable which connects the HDD to the laptop


Open up the case and listen to hear if it is running. That vibration was most likely the drive working.

    Stay far far away, Major flaw with Seagate Expansion series.

    Drive makes loud clicking noise & eventually fails.The symptom:Drive works fine for the first few GB's, and once it gets somewhere around 50 to 300 GB, it starts making loud clicking noise. The more data added to the drive the more frequent the clicking noise become and eventually the drive fails.Analysis:As the first few sectors of the platter / platters, the traveling distance (from the edge of palter to the center) for the head arm is not that great. But as more data gets written to the disk, inner sectors of platters gets occupied with data. That's when the problem starts.Without going into technical details, the issue here is not the drive. It is the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) that is installed in these external enclosures. This board regulates & provide power to the drive and in simple terms, there is not enough power for the disk to spin and for the head arm to extend far to reach inner sectors of the platter / platters... 1/5 Sandooz Maradi (West Coast) - See all my reviews This review is from: Seagate Expansion 1.5 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive ST315005EXA101-RK (Personal Computers) Drive makes loud clicking noise & eventually fails.The symptom:Drive works fine for the first few GB's, and once it gets somewhere around 50 to 300 GB, it starts making loud clicking noise.

    Seagate Expansion: Couldn't stand it even for a day

    Last week, I purchased a Seagate Expansion 1.5TB drive. I had read the product reviews on Amazon, however it seemed respectable enough. Last Friday, the drive arrived. Upon initial set-up, I noticed that it seemed extremely loud. After copying some data to it as a test, it began to make a very loud clicking sound. I have worked with many hard drives, and the sound was out of the ordinary (and, dare I say, reminiscent of the old Iomega click of death).Upon calling Seagate, the technician warned me that the drive was probably in its death throes and to make sure I had a backup of anything on it. I put the product back in its box, and sent it back to Amazon, who issued a replacement.When the replacement arrived, all seemed well at first. It formatted just fine, and seemed quiet and elegant. Once I connected it to my primary machine and began to copy data, however, it began making a similar noise to the prior model. Though it showed no signs of failure,... 1/5 Chris H.

    An Astonishing Experience: Three Drives Purchased - Three Drives Failed

    I was truly astonished by the bad experience I had with this particular drive. I picked up three of them intending to use them for backing up data and was truly shocked to discover two were confirmed DOA by Seagate Technical Support right out of the box.Symptom: Drive only spins up when power and USB cable are attached. But Windows XP never detected two of the drives, installing them only as "Unknown device," despite more than a dozen attempts to reinstall.Problem: "These drives are bad because the chipset is not responding properly with your computer." We tried several other machines here with the same results. Apparently hit or miss efforts to get the drive recognized by XP are also a result of a bad chipset, but people are apparently living with this, and they are living dangerously. Should the drive fail during a file write, your data integrity is at risk.Symptom: The third drive was instantly recognized by Windows XP, but within 15 minutes... 1/5 Phillip M.

    Archive Space Solution

    If your sole purpose is to offload archives, then this is a great product. Most people don't think twice of backing up their existing data. Also, each version of windows comes with a backup program which originated from the Veritas Brand of Software. You can easily set the Free Agent Hardware and make it an active drive, then setup the Backup Software within MS 2000, XP, or Vista.I've read reviews that seem to point out the burden of USB2 write speed. It makes no difference if the interface is Firewire or USB if the intent is to just backup data. If it takes a few extra seconds or minutes, no big deal. Either way the data will get to the disk and you can rest peacefully.Update as of September 02, 2007: It appears my drive has began failing. I've heard from various sources that this series of Drives lacks cooling capacity. I've left mine plugged in for a few hours to begin noticing Windows Cache errors reading and writing from the drive.

    Warning - warranty may not be valid!

    I bought this drive in July. A week ago the supplied power adapter burned out and fried the control board. WARNING! Seagate does NOT cover this at all! The only way they would accept a return is to send the entire unit. If I wanted my data, they offered an expensive data recovery service, not a drive replacement. There was NO option at all to replace the damaged components or even swap the drive to a new enclosure! I had to crack the case, remove the drive, and put it in a ($60) external enclosure myself. The drive was fine and I recovered all data. But the remains of the burned out unit are worthless. Seagate refused to replace the drive, even if I returned the entire pile of parts after copying the data to another drive...because I'd opened the case. What did they expect me to do? Pay them a fortune to "recover" my data when all that was needed was to move the returned drive into another case? "Sorry, we do not offer that service."I call that appalling and... 1/5 T.
