Hi johnsil,

If the drive shows up in MY COMPUTER then the easy way to format the drive is right-clicking on it then choosing FORMAT. This will erase everything in the drive, so make sure to back up everything in the drive before formatting it.

Now if the drive doesn't show up in MY COMPUTER you may have to goto the Control Panel click on Administrative Tools then select Computer Management then click on the category of "STORAGE", you should see there Disk Management. Carefully look there for your Seagate 120GB Freeagent drive, right-click then choose format, and that should format the drive.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Tip

Seagate FreeAgent Desk 500GB not reconized and just beeps


Hi, anyone looking at this tip please be patient as the link that was below is changing to another site, it shows a link from You Tube on how to take the Seagate apart so anyone with the problem with the unit just making beep sounds and not being reconized by their P.C.
As all the threads i saw like my 1st thread reporting about my friends Seagate FreeAgent Desk 500GB asking about his problem and no-one was getting replies, and they where getting frustrated, I decided to find out. Someone has replied to my other thread with the same answer as taking it apart and connecting it to a P.C. So to help others who need their important files from the external HardDrive I have made a step by step guide so even novice P.C. users like myself can attempt to sort it out without being charged loads $-£ etc.. It seems unfair for all these users to buy something new and with in 1 week - 2 months it fails and they have important files etc.. stuck on the HardDrive and being charge to retrieve it. I'm not looking to cause any trouble just want to help others out. (link no longer availiable, it is being amended)

Parhaps currupted cannot open it window says formet it


If you purchased a retail version of this hard drive from seagate they included a CD. On that cd are tools you can run diagnostics from and it can also tell you if it can make the necessary repairs. If you don't have one, ask around- any seagate hard drive product included this CD. Perhaps one of your friend has one.
hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you

Ican not acsess my maxtor 120gb diamondmax plus 9


There are a lot of Maxtor drives that are bad. Suggest you download Maxtors (MaxBlast 5) utilities software to check the drive. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/maxtor_desktop/
OR you can also run Seagates software on you're Maxtor drive. Seagate bought Maxtor. Download SeaTools for DOS.
Follow the instruction given online. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Please go through "See the tutorial".

Good Luck!
