FREECOMII 250 GB USB HARD DRIVE

I HAVE THE FREECOMII 250 GB USB HARD DRIVE. WHEN I TRIED TO PLUG IT IN MY I BOOK IT JUST DOESNT BRING THE ICON OF THE HARD DRIVE UP. I TRIED IT ON A PC AS WELL AND IT JUST DOESNT SEEM TO RECOGNISE IT AT ALL. I ALSO CHANGED THE USB WIRE JUST IN CASE THAT WAS THE PROBLEM AND STILL NOTHING HAS CHANGED. IF YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT TO DO I WOULD BE MOST GREATFUL.
THANK YOU

Do you receive any messages when you connect the drive.
Is the USB port you are using working with other usb devices.

Hi, I have a WD external HD (my book essential) that doesnt seems to be read by any of the pcs I've tried to plug it on. It doesnt make a sound or even blinks that blues light. I tried to change...


This unit requires separate AC power. If the blue light is not on to begin with - indicating power, no PC will be able to read the USB. There is a hard disc in the unit that needs to spin...it is not solid state like a thumb drive.

Turns on but nothing else


I have been using this hard disk for about 6 months now. It stopped working. The power and the usb cable are connected. I use Windows Xp and it doesnt read it. And for some reason most of the time when i open 'my computer' and the hard disk usb cable is plugged in 'my computer' stops responding !! However the 'safely remove disk' icon comes on the task bar and i can remove it from there. But i cant read it from explorer. The light on the HD keeps blinking. It reads my friends HD and flash drive. Please help me.
