Hello,

When i plug in my hard disk (Seagate FreeAgent Go, 500 GB) to my laptop, i can feel it spinning as i touch it, but it takes about 15 minutes for its light to turn on. Once the light is turned on, it appears in My Computer as Local Disk (G:). But i cannot access it anymore. And when the light it turned on, I can see its drive in Disk drives. Note that the hard disk was working fine on my laptop about 1 months ago.

I kept searching online for a solution, but nothing really worked for me. I am just thinking whether it is a problem related to the power supply? I don't know really for any solution for this. Appreciate your help.

Thanks.

HI there,

Ill advise you to change the hard drive enclosure and the problem may be with it or usb cable,as electronic parts may be damaged inside the enclosure.

Thanks
