Question about Hard Drives

1 Answer

Seagate FreeAgent 320 GB usb 2.0

Purchased this drive November 2007. Worked fine until last few days. Getting Windows 'delayed write errors' when closing .psd files in Adobe Elements 5.0 to this drive. Also getting delayed write errors when saving other files to this drive.
Ran chkdsk I: /f - Drive ok.
Ran fsutil dirty query I: - Drive not dirty
Tried all the Windows KB fixes. No help.
Drive seems to be getting hot at the base.
Perhaps a power supply / heat dispersal problem?

My seagate 320 gb freeagent go led is blinking and is not detected by my computer when i connect it to the usb port


First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine. try it in different usb ports. Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers. then check. Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check. Also locate the below key and make sure it's value is 3 not 4. HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\usbstor make sure start value is 3 not 4. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi,
Just open the case, it contain a normal harddrive that you can place inside your computer or in a new enclosure so you can get the data backedup.

What steps are necessary to hook up the drive? I was under the assumption that I could just plug it in.


I have exactly the same drive which i use on 2 different pc's one with XP the other with Windows 7 and both computers did just automatically install it and it worked. Try it on another PC maybe something is wrong with the USB on your PC.
