Original post said the new hard drive was tried on three different computers.
No. He said he did that with the existing one. When he got the new one, he didn't say he tried it in other computers as well. THAT is what I wanted to confirm, so we can see if it's doing the same thing. If so... I'm starting to wonder if he might have a virus, because this is too much of a coincidence.

Seagate had a period of screwing up, coinciding with their acquisition of Maxtor (a failed hard disk company). They have gotten much better. I'm using one of their SSD+HDD hybrid drives and it's terrific.

See if you can download the manual for your external HDD and check the troubleshooting section. There may be something you've overlooked.
