Hi Walter,

Given you may have unplugged it hot, chances are good that you've buggered the file structure but most of your data should still be there for retrieval.

Are you up for some tricky steps and wagering a chance at causing a little more damage in the process to do it yourself for free or would you prefer I point you in the directions of a pro who can do it for you without causing any additional damage?

For option one just reply back here by adding a comment saying you want to try it, for option 2 just leave a comment saying you'd like a pro and what region(Country & State/Prov) you are in and I'll get you in good hands.

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.

LACIE drive not visible


Unfortunatley this is the classic symptoms of a broken drive. You can try accessing the drive on DOS by using online software. (eg spinrite).

If you get your drive to work copy all the important info onto discs and format this drive.

As i repair PC's this is the most common problem. Hard drives are only guaranteed for 1 to 3 years.

To help you in future

*Defrag your hard drive every month
*Backup and format the drive every year
*And never fill up a drive over 60% ( eg never exceed 60 gig on a 100 gig drive.

These easy steps should stop a hard drive faliure and make it last around 5-10 years.

Hope this helps

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.

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.

Freecom 160GB Hard drive not recognised


Drives do fail Nick. Is it powering up [power supply problem?] Plug it in and go to Start/Control Panel/Admin tools/computer management/storage/ removable storage and disk management. See if the disc is recognised there. If it is not, and if the disk is spinning Try putting it into the deep freeze overnight. Plugging in next morning and if it fires up get as much off as possible before it goes down again.
