Have you partitioned and formatted the drive? you will need to do this before you can do anything with it, these drives are supplied unformatted as the manu does not know what kind of system it will be used on.

Freecom tough drive 320gb Cannot get out of passwword loop. No file show when password feature is disabled


You must set a jumper to clear your bios, read your manual how to do this. You may also want to remove the onboard battery ( looks like a quarter ) from it's holder. This can be a little tricky so do it at your own risk, resetting Bios with jumper should be sufficient, just make sure to put the jumper back in the proper position after a minute. You may also have a jumper to disable password, again, look at your manual.

In the control panel, go to administrative tools, open computer management. On the left side, there will be a "Disk Management" section, use that to assign a drive letter to your hard drive.

Freecom 400GB Hard drive not recognized.its a Freecom mobile drive xxs 400gb , my pc just cant recgnize the hard drive


I'll assume your using Windows.
I'll assume it's a USB drive.
I'll assume it is an external drive.
And I'll assume it's formatted as NTFS.

Try using the USB (or FireWire) port for anouther drive to see if that is the problem, if it is then reinstall the driver for the port, through the Computer Managment Concole (assuming yur using windows).

If you formatted the drive as FAT, re-format it as NTFS.

Ok then it is the HD, you can take it in to a computer store and have them save the information off of the drive. You can also go to the manufactures web site and see what the waranty is like on the HD also, you may be able to get a new one to replace the defective one. But first and fore-most, go into the closest circit city and see about getting the information saved onto another hard disc.

hi there,
sounds like you have a hardware problem...you should look into trying this drive on another system to see if the same thing is happening without the drive software ...and if it works try to recover all your data from this drive as soon as possible...hardware problems are most time intermittent ... so they work now then say after a while they stop...

Freecom 250 Gb Hard Drive


Hi des,
you need to install windows XP, on a different hard-drive.
even if it,s only 10 gig plus.
You can then access the drive.
Your problem is here, is that you,ve upgraded from XP to Vista, theres a possibility, that you may have lost or even formatted your freecom hard-drive.
No-Support-Device detected, is saying that your USB devices are not functioning correctly.
Check in the bios that the USB devices are enabled, to operate your hard-drive. ( this is assuming it,s a USB drive )

Hope this helps you out.

Mike @ compurepair.

"Disk not ready" message


Unless you are using linux, try typing F:\ not F:/. Microsoft uses a backslash for directories while unix/linux use /.
