About 3 months ago i purchased seagate 3TB expansion USB 3.0 external hard drive.
all worked well apart from windows 7 not being able to see that hard drive to do a back up which at this stage im not Concerned with this issue
Now i have a 250Gb SSD with the same OS installed, now i plug in the external hard drive into a usb 3 slot & windows 7 shows there is a seagate external hard drive connected as "H drive" but will not read it.according to windows 7 the driver
is working properly.
i have uninstalled the usb driver & reinstalled with no luck, i have also tried to open up my computer management but it just freezes
whilst i have the external hard drive pluged in. i have also plug the external hard drive into all available
usb slots with the same issue.
Now i took the extnernal hard drive into work & pluged it into a windows XP works great, so im now 100% sure there is no problem with the external drive. i have also downloaded all the seagate tools for the hard drive & whilst the drive is plug into the computer the programs just freeze.
i have done extenive research online to try & find a solution to this & cant find anyone with the same problem. except one on the seagates forum & the seagate responed with its a windows 7 problem. i will post that link if needed.
i will upload some SS when i get home from work.
