HELP - I have an Acomdata External Hard Drive (I think 160GB). Have used it sucessfully 1x month for all of my kids pictures (about 100GB) for the past year. Just tried to use it with the same power...


Try a different power supply. Also check cables from the Ext. Hard Drive to the computer. If none of that helps and you know how, open the Ext. Hard Drive case and remove the Hard Drive from the case. Connect the Hard Drive to the appropriate BUS and power source inside the computer. You may have to adjust the jumpers, probably to a slave setting. If it still doesn't work then the Hard Drive may be toast. This is the reason I always back up important files onto two different devices. If one fails the info is still on the other one. That is all I can think of right now. Hope you get your kid's picts back.

Reinstall software to use my 160GB freeAgent Go USB


Hi, I am assuming that you are referring to a USB based external hard drive called Free Agent, by Seagate I think.

Which operating system are you using ?

Windows XP has native support for USB, and it should automatically detect the hard drive when you plug it in.
It should NOT require any other software to access the drive.

if not:
1) Check that the HD is powered up
2) Try a different USB cable
3) Try a different USB socket

4) Make sure that the HARD drive is correctly formatted:
i.e. Assuming you are running Windows XP
(Vista should have similar facilities)

Goto to the Control Panel -->
Double click on Administrative Tools
Double click on Computer Management
Look down, under storage,
Click on "Disk Management"
Give it a couple seconds to search for drives,
and to populate the list ...

Check to see if the external disk appears in the list:
It should be partitioned with an EXTENDED partition,
containing a LOGICAL drive, and formatted with NTFS.

If necessary, partition and format the drive, assuming
you have not already done so, and the drive does not
contain any data.

If the drive did previously contain your data, you can
either loose the data and re-format it, or you can hire
a data recovery company to repair the damaged drive.

I purchase a FreeAgent Go 160gb,getting started it does not do anything. the diolog window does not come up,unit just beeps...


Hi,
If this is an External USB Hard-Drive, your problem is insufficient power provided by the USB Port.
1:- Try Another USB Port If You Have One.
2:- If you have a 2 into 1 USB Cable, connect 2 into 2 individual USB Ports ( On Computer ) And 1 into Hard-drive Unit.
If none of this works, your drive is faulty.
