The model is a Seagate Backhub Plus Hub. It has worked before but it doesn't work now. I haven't used it in a long time though. It also makes weird noises when I try to boot it up. Almost like it's trying to start, but somehow failing. I think there is an issue regarding the spin up. Windows shows a popup message as well saying it can't recognize the device. I have tried connecting it to a laptop, but it doesn't work there. It shows up on the device manager under disk drives when I press (View hidden devices) However, it does not show up on computer management. I am out of options and require help.
