Itunes and free agent drive problems

My Itunes are stored in a Seagate Free Agent drive.
When on itunes, the songs start to cut out, and then after a while won't play at all, because the computer says no drive is hooked up. I have checked all cords and they are fine. I can unplug the cords and then plug them back in, and sometimes, the drive will then be recognized by computer, but not always.
I can restart my computer, and once in a while the Seagate will be recognized, but not always. So it is kind of hit and miss, if I get the itunes to working.

Thanks for your help.

Is this a USB drive?

Try turning off Enhanced USB support, from the Device Manager in Windows; this will allow it to be read, a little slower though.

Computer Tips: Low Memory Problems

How to solve low memory problems...?

Normally this warning message shows when you run many programs same time than the RAM installed on your computer is designed to support. Your can solve this problem by increasing the system paging file size also called as virtual memory. Using this virtual memory windows moving information to and from the paging file for fast processing. This will free up enough RAM for other programs to run properly.
To increase the system page file follow the give path:

Control Panel > System > Advanced > Click on Settings (Under Performance) > Advanced > Change
Here under Drive (Volume label), you have option to select any of your hard disk drive, but the best choice is, select any drive other than C drive for virtual memory.


Set the double Initial & Maximum Size of your Virtual Memory. Here set initial size 700 MB and maximum size up to 1000MB; you can change this size according to the free space available on your hard drive.

During upgrade of windows 32 bit vista to win 7 32 bit compatibility test advised to update device drivers storage controllers SCSI/RAID host hd type seagate baracuda 7200-10 how do i find suitable...

The drivers for vista and windows 7 are probably the same. As long as you performed an upgrade and all your original programs and data are still there. there is no point in updating drivers unless you are expieriencing problems.

Drivers for xp needed on the home page you should see the download software finder under that there will be a list platform, category, sub category , price, from the category drop down list select drivers then from the price drop down list select free or which ever applies to your need hope this helps dont forget to vote also you might
Behind a slick interface, this program backs up all your PC's drivers in case you mess up something fierce. From registration to implementation, DriverMax works fast, runs smooth, and does even more than mere backing up.
When you run the app, it asks you if you'd like to run the trial version or apply for a registration key. The key is free, though, requiring only an e-mail address and your name. Once you've entered the key, the program interface appears, with slick button navigation: Driver Operations, Updates and Identification, and Popular Hardware. Mousing over one reveals more choices, so you can export your drivers, import drivers, or view an installed drivers report.
Updates lets you update both the DriverMax software and the drivers themselves, although as of this writing there is a warning label on the DriverMax Web site that downloads are not currently functioning. The program can also identify unknown hardware and point you in the direction of popular hardware options, pointing users to a compilation of statistics about different video cards and processors.
The strongest features, though, relate to driver backup and reinstalls. They function smoothly, offering users the option to back up all drivers or compile a customized list. Reinstalling an "accidentally" deleted driver was as pain-free as could be. As of the version 4.4 update, the DriverMax Agent, which automatically scans for driver updates, works in Windows XP and Windows Vista 32-bit, but not 64-bit. This is a great utility tool that should appeal to newbies, advanced hackers, and everybody in between. Hope this helps don't forget to vote

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive

I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

My Seagate Free Agent Classic external hard drive won't work

Have you tried a different USB port? Some USB chipsets are prone to frying if you use the front accessible ports. Also, try the drive on another computer.
