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

    Similar to adding an internal drive. Worry about heat. Product info needs to be more than just "It just works"

    NOTE: Amazon has combined the reviews for the 1TB, 2TB and 3TB versions of this product, with the 3TB version dominating the negative reviews (as of 2012-11-24), so pay attention to which version is being reviewed.The target market of the Seagate Expansion Desktop line seems to be people who want to add a performance drive, but don't want to, or cannot, install an additional internal drive, that is, this is a drive they won't be moving, at least not frequently. For example, a laptop where the extra storage can happily stay behind in the office. Or a small-form-factor PC (mini-PC, HTPC, "nettop") that doesn't have space. There are other lines of external drives from Seagate (and others) targeting more transient/mobile uses.For a range of potential buyers of this drive, the product information provided may be too sketchy. The focus of this review is to fill in some of the missing info, and it is structured to facilitate your skipping details that don't interest... 4/5 Douglas B.

    (3.5 stars) Back-up your files, now! A good option for backup or other intermittent use

    THE QUICK TAKE: The Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive STBV2000100 is a good option as a backup drive, or as an expansion drive that isn't used intensively. It may also serve well as a working drive that's used more intensively but for temporary or replaceable files - such as a scratch drive or a media server.This drive is large enough and priced low enough that you can backup multiple computers for not a lot of money.However, if you're looking for an expansion drive - a second drive to augment a laptop or desktop - that you will use intensively, consider options with cooling and perhaps backup, especially if you will use the drive for your only copy of files.A DESKTOP DRIVE: This is a desktop drive, not a truly portable drive. You could use it to backup multiple computers around a home or office, but you're not going to enjoy carrying the drive and the power supply.A FAST CONNECTION: USB 3.0 really is fun to use, if... 4/5 Snap, Crackle and Pop (United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB Desktop External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STBV2000100) (Personal Computers) Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)

    Nothing New But The Firmware

    Summary* Same internal drive as the old version* Runs just as hot as the old external drive (in my testing)* APM is now turned off by default - this might be huge, people online have blamed this feature for the grinding noises and premature death of some seagate drives* Firmware update from CC9D to CC9E (CC9H firmware is available online)* Looks a little better* Not worth more than the old version imoEdit #2: When I used the Serial Number from Crystaldiskinfo to check the warranty (google "Seagate Warranty Checker") it showed that my drive was under warranty until the end of August 2013. That's almost 14 months, which still isn't long, but make sure you check online and do not just assume your warranty is dead after 12 months exact.I needed another 3tb drive and decided to go out on a limb and spend the extra $10 on this "new version" of the seagate drive.I will admit that at least the case looks different - its... 3/5 RandomGibberish - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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.
