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

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.

    Great drive, but short warranty

    I've purchased a lot of different hard drives over the years and used to build my own external drives using internal drives and external enclosures. It used to be cheaper to build your own external drives. These days, external hard drives are very competitively priced, like the Seagate Expansion drive.PROS:- Quiet- Stays cool- Fast USB 3.0 performance- Backwards compatible with USB 2.0- Works with Mac OS X 10.4.8 and upCONS:- Measly 1 year warrantyDESIGN & BUILDThe Seagate Expansion portable hard drive's enclosure is made out of matte plastic that feels pretty well made, though I'd prefer aluminum for durability and better heat dissipation. Glossy plastic enclosures are hard to keep looking good, so kudos to Seagate for using the matte plastic instead. The back of the drive has the USB 3.0 port and there's an itty bitty blue power/activity light on top of the drive, towards the back. Also, there are... 3/5 Ed (San Francisco Bay Area) - See all my reviews, June 29, 2012

    Perfect for media files for tv usage

    I also have the big brother version of this drive (3TB external hdd, AC powered), and both were very easy to use, plug to the USB port, and then start transferring files.This is the portable version, which means no addition AC power supply needed, everything is powered by USB. Portable also means smaller compared to the AC powered external HDDs. Maximum capacity for portable HDDs right now is 1TB compared to 3TB for AC powered external HDDs.Besides media files, this is also perfect for backups, documents, etc., and if you have a laptop equipped with SSD, you'll gonna need more space and this is perfect.So far so good, no problems at all. Used it on my old HP laptop with usb 2.0 port, works good (slower transfer speed of course). Used it on an alienware m14x with usb 3.0 port, works good again and now with fast transfer speed. Used it on my LG 3dtv to watch full hd movies saved on the drive and it works great!

    Good drive, needs better instructions for the tech impaired

    I am not terribly computer savvy. I use a computer for my work all day every day. But I do not understand how many things work. I don't understand most technical talk/gibberish. But I do know that I need to back up my files as my desktop is limping towards a slow and painful death.I was surprised at how tiny and light the drive was. I plugged it into the USB drive. It was silent. But here is where I ran aground. The interface is not in the least bit intuitive. The only thing that readily pops up to be done is registering the unit. I did that but since I actually wanted to save things to the drive rather than just registering it, I was a little frustrated. While there are a great many tech lovers in the world they are by no means the only people using these products. I was frustrated that there were no useful instructions or a program to help me use the drive.Eventually, I was able to figure out how to go through the control panel, back up my files,... 4/5 Half Fast Farmer - See all my reviews, July 5, 2012

    Nice quiet drive easy to use

    ---update at end---I purchased this drive a few weeks ago and have been very pleased with it. The only junk it was the warranty registration program. Run it then delete it. Disk comes pre-formated for NTFS. I went ahead and did a quick format to get rid of the existing folders on it. The drive goes into standby mode after 5 minutes bye default. This is quickly remedied and set to your liking with free Seagate Manager program available on Seagates website. Also this program give you the ability to do backups, and computer syncs.Pros -Quiet drivevery fastsmall and sleekno power supply neededonly requires use of one usb portSimple/Custom Backups with Seagate ManagerSync Option with Seagate managerCons-Goes into standby in 5 minutes by default.

    Single USB not enough

    I bought this drive for three reasons:1. Large capacity in a small form factor,2. The ability to power/access it from a single USB port,3. It was on sale at Amazon for under $70.I started using it on my laptop when it arrived yesterday and was impressed: small, and it worked well with the short standard mini-USB cable. Then last night I plugged it in to my desktop and went to transfer over my 400 GB movie directory. It kept failing after about 10 seconds, at which time Windows 7 would report that I had just attached it. My first thought was it was due to the "sleep" utility, so I downloaded and installed the Free Agent tool from Seagate and set the timeout to Never. Didn't make any difference. I then used the test tool in the utility software and the it reported a drive failure at about 8%, and said I should contact Seagate for an RMA. All my other small external drives (except for an ancient 30 GB) need a splitter USB cable: one end connects to the drive... 3/5 Jeffrey Peterman (MD USA) - See all my reviews, July 30, 2010
