Windows 7: Seagate external

What happened? SeaTools for Windows did not recognize your external drive???????

Are you ready for further experiments? Yes, I call it experiment since I hadn't done it before on a user's drive.

Since your drive is almost lost, I don't mind carrying out the experiment on your drive and see whether there is any chance of reviving it by this method.It is not going to affect your data area. If this experiment fails then we will go to the last option of taking out your drive from the enclosure and hooking it up as a second drive on a Desktop.I shall refer you to a thread where the OP successfully recovered his Read Only Bad Disk, much to our surprise.

That's right, i left it on that same night for some hours. I then after about 4 hours unplugged and plugged external back in to see but still no luck. All you see is ....

I still feel there is some hope like a miracle may happen at any time as long as we keep trying.

If at the last stage you decide we should take it out of its enclosure, could i maybe clean the whole external and use the 3tb for storage again?

Try Seatools for DOS.
That would eliminate Windows from a possible problem.
I've seen where Seatools for DOS works better than the Windows version in some cases.

I worked on a problem a while ago with a Seagate HD, contacted Seagate support, and they responded to me within 1 Business day, with a good answer, help, etc.
They explained things to me so my 2 brain cells could understand ...
I was happy

Yep, try DavidE's suggestion. SeaToolsDOS223ALL.ISO(8.45MB) burn it to CD or CDRW boot from it and check.

DavidE's suggestions have always been good. In one thread, he suggested Paragon Rescue Kit - remember DavidE ? - and the OP came back with a smiley face that it worked. I gave a cursory glance on it and even the more than two cells of my brain cannot decipher how to use that program.

Post 82 - It was stuck on SCSI.
