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.

    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! I hope it stays like that, can't comment... 5/5 Jayhan (CA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Seagate Expansion 1TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STBX1000101) (Personal Computers) 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.

    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

    Sara Plain and Tall

    This external drive lives in the plainest of black plastic cases. On the front is an all white Seagate logo and next to that a small green LED power/busy light. Plug it in and you'll find few files stored in it. A back-up utility, some set-up files, user guides and not much else. Just a lot of empty space. No stands, no back-lit logos, no extra inputs. On the back you'll find a power input and a USB 3 jack. In the box you'll find the USB cable and power adapter that plug into those jacks, as well as a quick start sheet and warranty card all packed in eco-friendly packaging. This is as simple and plain as it gets.I started by plugging this into a netbook running Windows 7. Windows recognized it immediately and asked if I'd like to use it as a back-up drive which I did. It was easy and problem-free.The Seagate Expansion hard drive is set-up for Windows computers, but if you're willing to take a minute to reformat it, it'll work fine for Apple users too... 5/5 Rex Kullmann (South Florida) - See all my reviews, August 10, 2011

    Disappointed - Seagate Expansion 2 TB USB 3.0 Desktop Exernal Hard Drive STAY2000102

    First of all, a big thumbs-up for Amazon's return policy - without it I would have been kicking myself for purchasing this hard drive. 5 Stars plus for Amazon!Now on the hard drive. It arrived on a Thursday. The physical appearance was appealing, and the size was great. The USB 3 connector on the unit looked distorted, but the cable was plugged in with no problem. Eagerly I plugged it into my ASUS desktop with Windows 7 64-bit, and kept my fingers crossed - had read so many reviews about the clicking sound and DOA, and wished mine would not be like that. Alas, nothing happened - nothing bad that was. The drive showed up immediately on the desktop and there was no clicking sound. I renamed it and transferred a few files to it, everything looked good. So I decided to put it under some stress test by mobilizing Norton Security Suite to backup my C and D drives (combined about 800 GB) and transferring about 300 GB of digital movies at the same time from another... 1/5 Starkid (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Reasonable speed, poor construction.

    When I received the box, I realized something was wrong. It rattled -- never a good sign with an electronic component. Something was loose within the hard drive's casing. Nonetheless, it seemed to work fine, powering on when I plugged in the power adapter. When I inserted the USB cable, Windows 7 recognized the drive just fine. I formatted the drive, removing all of Seagate's pre-installed software and proceeded to copy over 50 GBs of music. This took approximately an hour, at a speed of 16 mb/s over USB 2.0; not blazing fast, but acceptable.So far, rattling aside, it seemed to be a reasonable product. I was going to test USB 3.0 when I copied the files back to my PC after a fresh Windows 7 install. I unhooked it from my computer and removed the power cable to turn the drive off.The enclosure never powered back on. It was not asleep -- it was dead. No amount of unplugging and replugging the power cord back in would bring it back. The only option to get my data... 3/5 Nicholas E. Johansen (USA) - See all my reviews, August 26, 2011

    Nice Drive

    USB 3.0 is a major improvement over the older 2.0 version, with speed up to 5 Gigabits/sec (versus 480 Megabits/sec of USB 2.0). Computers with USB 3.0 are still relatively rare but this SEAGATE Expansion 500 GB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive STAX500102 is backward-compatible to USB 2.0, which is what I got in my HP desktop. There was no connectivity problem. The hard drive is plug-N-play; within seconds after I plugged it in, it was up and running. A USB 3.0 cable is included. It is different in construction from USB 2.0 cables. A tiny green LED lights up when the connection is made. Like most of the portable hard drives, power is drawn from the computer via the USB cable. No AC transformer or cord is necessary. This hard drive is cool to the touch, even after prolonged usage. This drive is highly portable, measuring 3-1/4" X 5-3/8" X 5/8" thick. A backup software called Memeo is included. I did not install it. Frankly, I was leery of cluttering up my hard drive with unfamiliar... 5/5 Alan Rivière "Maggie's Dad" (Southwest, USA) - See all my reviews, August 5, 2011

    not such a good drive

    I have just returned my second failed Seagate 1 TB 3.0 USB External Drive.Both failed within 60 days of purchase (and one within 30 days). I have several of the USB 2.0 versions that work fine and have for quite a long time. Both failures of the 3.0 drive were total- the drive was not recognizable by my computer (or the other computer I tried them on), both power supplies were working fine and both cords were operational. The drive, when plugged in, would just start repetitively beeping and would not even spin up.I like Seagate drives- I have several FreeAgent drives which are first-class drives and the two Expansion 2.0 drives all of which have been great. The 3.0 model, however, is a dog and should be avoided. Go with the FreeAgent drives, which are dependable.The worse part of this was trying to deal with the manufacturer. I did the responsible consumer thing, went to the Seagate website and tried to create a return.

    Not a bad cheap external, but not amazing

    I have quite a few external drives so I'm pretty familiar with their general specs, so honestly I wasn't expecting too much out of the Seagate Expansion drive. Other than the USB 3.0 connector, there's really nothing really "new" about this drive.The basics - it's a 2.5" 5400 RPM "green" drive - which means the disk has a habit of going to sleep when not in use, but it also means that it's pretty light on the power consumption. It's also quiet and has a very low heat signature. Average read/write speeds (over USB 3.0): 30/25 MBps (see "customer images" for my benchmark results).What it's good for:At 500GB, this drive is pretty small when compared to its 2-4TB neighbors. However this drive is nice because it's completely powered via USB and has a small footprint. The portability comes in handy when a USB memory stick just doesn't have enough room. And this is where the Expansion might be the best fit - as an IT Consultant it's nice to be able to have an... 4/5 Storm (Texas) - See all my reviews, September 12, 2011
