Trouble on reading files from external hard drive. What to blame?

I'm using an 500 GB Seagate Expansion Drive. Just got a spare cable for the drive two months ago, since I found something false when I tried to connect with the previous cable.

But nothing changed even when I try to connect with the newer cable. It's the USB Type 3.0.

When I try to open some video files (note: I'm using VLC.), the video crashed. "File reading error", like that. When I extract some compressed files (especially the ones containing picture files), several of the contents cannot be read.

What do you think of this case?

Your Seagate USB drive may be needing more power than the Mac's USB port can supply.

I would say get a USB powered hub and one of these cables:

This injects extra power into the port.

Also, on a Windows PC, download and run this utility to make sure there are no physical errors with the Seagate drive. However, you do need to use that cable I suggested. Plug both ends on the PC side in first, before plugging it in the Drive.

Sorry for the long reply.

I just found that my HDD was formatted in NTFS. That's why it doesn't want to read my files normally.

- Opened the Disk Utility.

- Went into the Erase button. I changed the HDD's partition into FAT32, with GUID partition map.

- Completed. Opened several of my files, nearly without an error.

Am I doing it the right way?
