    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Troublshoot:-

    1. Uninstall the storage driver from the system.

    2. Now connect the external drive to different USB port.

    3. Once you connect the drive to system then driver for the
    drive is automatically install on the system.

    4. Now this time it will detect the seagate-1tb-external-drive.

    5. If not connect then go to the online and download the correct driver for the
    drive.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............................

    1.Some times even your Mac recognizes it will do not show it.

    2.So you open the Finder and then click on 'Application.

    3.Then you tap and open the Disk Utilities if the External Drive is there in the utility.

    4.Then there is no problem if it is also not recognized there also then the problem may be with your USB port.

    5.So check it first if you do not find any problem with it then you try to update the USb drivers.

    All the best..........................
