Since it works on a PS3 and doesn't work on your PC, it's anybody's guess what it will do on other devices. So that's what I would try: see what it does on another PC.
Please note that we don't recommend using an external disk for storage. They are too error prone. They are nice for a backup and for moving data between PC's, but (like any hard disk) shouldn't be used to store your only copy of certain data. So the first thing to do once it works on that other PC: copy the contents (at least the part of your stuff that you don't want to lose) to another external disk as a backup.
hi everyone. I have a big problem going on with my "Seagate Free Agent Go Flex usb3.0 2TB external HDD". Out of nowhere this drive just quit reading on my pc. i plug it in and it reads its but doesn't launch anything. Just asks me to format it and even under "my computer" i am unable to open it. BUT!, heres the kicker. i can plug it into my ps3 and it will fully read the drive and everything i have on it! i don't have a clue what to do. if someone could please give me some insight on how to solve this problem i would really appreciate it. I really don't want to lose all my stuff!
