Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. Code 43 This message pops up in when i plug in my SeaGate Free Agent GoFlex hard disk.


Try this as a possible fix.
This trick can quickly fix many mysterious hardware failures

The other thing I've heard of happening is a few of the USB 3.0 ports having problems with USB 2.0 equipment. I know it should be back compatible, but Windows can have problems. Try another USB port to see if that helps.

Does the SeaGate cable have 1 or 2 connections to the computer? Unfortunately, most external hard drives need to connect to 2 USB ports to get enough power.

I just looked up this problem on Seagate's website, and they pretty much come up with the same answers. Uninstall and re-install the USB drivers with the SeaGate connected. Or use other USB ports. The other suggestions they have don't make sense, if you can't talk to the thing, how do you run Seatools or checkdisk?

Fixya doesn't allow me to put in another link at this point, so you'll have to copy and drop this into your address bar.

Here's another write-up on fixing the code 43, I wouldn't do number 6.Update BIOS though, USB is working fine with everything else, it's NOT the BIOS that's having a problem.

Hi'' so sorry for you , yes hard disk are so delicate when it fall , a fragile hardware even with just a little bang on tables or to a hard things the next is it would be damage , so here is another way to check on how to see back your files on the 500gb HHD you dropped,i hope this can help you, Open and connect to an unplug pc, if your 500gb HDD is a sata connection use the sata wire to connect hard disk directly to a PC mother board , insert the sata wire to a Sata port and put a supply on the disk , but be sure your disk is placed on top of box or books just to make sure it would not make any short circuits and then start power on, this is very risky work ,a professional technician is recommended to work it out .

Hi, it might be a file system error.
You could try removing the hdd from the usb enclosure and connect it directly to your pc via SATA.
(power off both of them before doing so)
If it really is the file system then scan disk should repair it automatically when turning on the pc.
Then if the pc recognizes it you can put it back in the usb enclosure.
Good luck!

When I try to format my seagate expansion portable drive 500GB the error message appeared is : windows was unable to complete the format. Is there any solution to this problem?


Hello,

If you are connecting this drive to your machine with firewire while you are trying to format it try connecting it to your machine with USB. If it formats okay that way you can connect it to your machine with firewire again after the formatting is complete.

Also make sure you have set the formatting process for the correct file system. For example FAT32 or NTFS.

Also, you did not mention which operating system you are using. For example a computer running Windows Millenium will not format many of these drives at all.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps don

First, extract all data that you have on the hard-drive, while you still can.

Seagate's web-site suggests that you first download and run Seagate's "Drive Fitness Tool", which exercises the disk-drive, and produces a "fitness" report. If it fails, then delete all your "private" files, and either take the drive back to the retail location where you bought it, or get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) from Seagate, to get permission from Seagate to return the drive to them, for them to analyze the disk, and probably replace it.

External hard drives are plug and play, the drivers are build into windows.
IF the hard drive was connected when your computed crashed, and the hard drive was in use, it may have damaged it.

Plug it back in and try this. Right click my computer and click "Manage"
When the window opens select "Disc Management". In the bottom of the screen you will see all the Disk drives installed on you computer. Right click on your drive and select "Properties". When the window open click the "Tools" tab and finally Run the Error Checking Tool. It will scan and fix any issues with the disk. Cheers :)
