    Have you tried using another USB port? or even using another USB cable?

    Does your Seagate drive have it's own external power source?

    You can turn off the USB power management for the USB, you can do that for all hubs: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07246

    The problem started with a defective USB Apple 30 pin cable, when plugged into my computer front USB port , my OEM Apple cable died, the problem seems to have gone alway with the Seagate issue
    Thanks for your help
