Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
I have a Seagate 500GB external hard disk. Just half an hour ago it worked just fine. I did some changes (on iTunes) to my music and suddenly my computer tells me it doesn't recognise the disk. I checked the status of the port and in says no driver installed. But I just had it... what happened? This is not the first time. Turning the computer off and on doesn't help. Neither does changing the port. Please, can you help? I don't understand much about computers, so keep it simple, please. BTW, the product, I'm not sure if it says Pro in it, on the bottom of the disk is says only FreeAgent desktop 500 GB
I have a Seagate Freeagent 500GB that has been working like magic for almost 3 months. Suddenly Windows XP pops up a msg that says it can't write to the drive. Rebooting failed to resolve and now the drive cannot be seen. The drive power on/off is driven by the USB connection. USB or internal drive problems will prevent the drive from powering on or off. I put my drive in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and then was able to get my data off. My replacement will be a Western Digital!

If it has been working and now does not not. If the system is ME or NTFS[XP /2000/VISTA] If the port check shows nothing untoward Then you must look to the the disc or its connection or power supply. So -if you can check out the power supply Is it self powered[internally of via a 'power brick'] or does it rely on USB power from the computer? If the latter- disable/unplug some other other USB devices. If it 'works on its own power' check that it is indeed running. Change the USB cable for another. Comeback if still in trouble
