As above TestDisk should sort the partition, if you can run from a Floppy, it will be better

even after the seagate is connected to the pc and turned on, it is not picked up but the pc. meaning that the test disk wont work as there is only a main hard drive and no externel

You could take the drive out of the case and fit inside computer as Slave so you could sort it. As it may be a USB problem with the External case

Hi, was just wondering if you managed to fix this as mine is doing the exact same thing......

Hi, best to start your own thread - you could use a slightly different subject heading, so as not to confuse. The reason I say start your own thread, is becuase the originator of this thread will now get emails from PCA if/when anyone responds to your question, even though the original thread is getting on for a year old.

I would suggest you try Fruit Bat /\0/\'s suggestion as above.
