I recently bought a Freecom 1TB hard drive. It was not showing up on my PC only my laptop. I removed password protection and it worked on my PC. Then when I went to put it back to my laptop, it now asks for a password.... but is not the password I had set! It now does this when I connect to the PC also. Please help!! Do you know of a default password to save me losing all of my stuff or how I can reset without deleting everything?

Is this a SATA drive and what operating system is loaded on it? .
you may have to insert the installation disk to reset the password.
There is a Linux program on the internet to reset the password to default but there is no guarantee to this. This is for Windows XP
2. You can also get some one with a Linux box to view and backup your data on another hard drive but the PC will have to be compatible to accommodate the hard drive capacity.
3. Try not entering a password at all when in the password/ user screen "hit enter"

Ive been using my Freecom Mobile Drive Mg 1TB for a while. Now when I plug it in, the back led light (green) does not light up nor can I find the HD in Finder on Mac. I've tried another USB port and...


sure (buy a pC) LOL
ok , the first test is !
does it spin, hear to case, whirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
if not its dead or you lost power to it.
same for all HDD.

if dead, take it apart (out of warranty) and reset all internal cables.
or remove the drive inside and test it.
if drive good, good, if bad its toast.
if the drive is really good, then the power pack in side is bad.
so buy a new case , for the working drive.
I make my own External drives. that way, its not magic and i can fix it and can pick the best cases made, i use fan cases.
that run very cool, heat kills most drives, and 10x that on most
external drives, where heat is never ADDRESSED !

Hp hdd no show computer


Is this an external 1TB Hard Drive? Maybe it's to big for your computer. If it's an external drive try it on another computer and see if it works. There is also the possibility that the external 1TB drive is bad.

If it's not an external hard drive then try the steps below.

Click Start/My Computer and see if your hard drive is listed as a device. If not, turn the computer off, remove the battery, remove the cover that houses the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop then remove the hard drive from the bay. Wait 30 seconds and put the hard drive back into the bay and reboot. Now see if the hard drive is shown under My Computer. If not, the drive might be bad.

Iomega 1TB HD Works on iMac but not on Windows Laptop?


as the mac has a diffreent format to a pc you cannot connect up the drive to a pc because it simply wont recodnise it. the best way is to network the 2 computers together then alow file sharing on the mac and searcc with windows through the network to find the drive. then copy them across the network to your pc. this will then reformat the files to PC files at they hit your PC

Try Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management.

Assuming this external hard drie is powered via USB, you probably just need the drivers:

Freecom hard drive problem?


Unless you "GHOST" or "CLONE" the programsd over to the harddrive, instead of just copy and paste, they will not open. What you will have to do mo0re than likely is remove the installation files through control panel and reinstall the program onto the external harddrive.
