Here's your original post with same hdd and same problem.
Is this drive still under warranty? If so get a replacement.
Formatting in exfat worked for a while but maybe not the answer.
When you bought this drive was it formatted for a Mac. If you still have the papaerwork or box look and see what you need to do to format NTFS for Windows.
Don't know for sure but while looking at some new external hdd's last week I saw many listed as formatted for Mac and not PC. Some were listed for either Mac or PC and stated if for windows must format first. You might have a propriatary hdd for a MAC.
germ-x I run Windows I have no need for Mac so I don't do anything that works better on Mac than Windows and mine said it worked on Windows or Mac
warlock Do I need to return it to the Wal-mart I bought it at or do I have to go through Seagate to return it
There might be one last shot at getting it to work. You might try Darik's Boot And Nuke
This will wipe your hdd so you will have to format it when Dban is complete.
Have you looked at all the spec's on this drive>
There should be a contact phone number on Seagate website. Try that if in the same country.
Run a chkdsk /r in elevated cmd. That will fix it. If you want a specific partition, add x: in front of the /r where x is the partition letter of the said partition. And leave a space between the parameters.
