    Seagate HDD not showing up in computer(have tried all give

    Dear All,

    I have been using my Seagate 1TB Hard Disk since 4 months, recently i tried copying a file to it, and it showed:

    ""This file is not located in this Drive""

    it was something like this...

    And after that my HDD went undetected, now whenever i plug it in, it makes the sound of turning on.and also the blue light comes on the HDD.

    But it's not shown in My computer.

    I changed my cables, went to disk management ; where i could not see my drive listed there(i can send u a screenshot of it; as some other unnamed disks were there),

    i tried refreshing it and still no success.

    I also have tried updating, deleting the drivers from Device Manager, but no Success.

    Please Help me in resolving this issue..
