If running Windoze OS, then try plugging in the firewire cable after you are fully booted and see if it picks it up as new hardware found. That may get it configured for you.
Good luck.

Toshiba Satellite A665 S6067 laptop wont recognize my SeaGate FreeAgent Go 500 Gb. device


I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

I have an Iomega external hard drive but my Acer Aspire One will not recognize the drive. It worked yesterday but today it is not recognizing the drive.


Hi

I guess that you have connected the external hard drive via a usb

have you tried plugging it into another usb

if it were not the case that it was working yesterday i would of said make sure the jumpers on the external hard drive are not set to master either take off completely or set to slave

hope this helps

Can I replace orig hp ze1115 20GB hd w/60GB hd?


No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.

Dell Inspiron 1525 - Firewire not working


It may be the communication setup.

You might need to set within the Camera PTP protocol.

The WD drive specs out a 6 pin connector, not a 4 pin.

Firewire on Inspiron - Connecting Canon MD 120 camcorder


Browsing over the md120 specs, included should be a software disc for the usb connector, so it shouldn't matter whether you use an adapter or the 4 to 4 cable. This disc will have the drivers and software for using the camera in conjunction with your laptop. Have you tried this download for the camera.

Also check out this link. Towards the bottom under additional features it lists software, drivers and utilities, and at the bottom under supplied accessories it lists application software/usb driver. Go to the store you purchased this at or contact Cannon support and get the disc that was supposed to be included.

Attach external hard drive


firewire adapters only fit into firewire sockets..if you don't have that upgrade, you most likely only have USB ports..
