Freecom 250 Gb Hard Drive

I attempted to upgrade my pc from Windows XP to Vista. I had to abort the process as my pc did not have the correct configuration. I have reloaded XP but now find that although my computer recognise my Freecom device it does not show up as a device on My Computer; equually attemting to make a new backup creates the message in Freecom Backup 'No support device detected'. My backups for both devices and photosare all on my hard drive so I would like to retrieve them please.
Can you tell me how to fix this problem please.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi des,
you need to install windows XP, on a different hard-drive.
even if it,s only 10 gig plus.
You can then access the drive.
Your problem is here, is that you,ve upgraded from XP to Vista, theres a possibility, that you may have lost or even formatted your freecom hard-drive.
No-Support-Device detected, is saying that your USB devices are not functioning correctly.
Check in the bios that the USB devices are enabled, to operate your hard-drive. ( this is assuming it,s a USB drive )

Hope this helps you out.

Mike @ compurepair.

Coppying speed is slow


in vista you need to change the remote differential compression.  Can be found in control panel?programs?windows settings I believe.  Turn it off.  As far as XP, sounds like a problem with the hard drive or memory.  I know of this issue in vista, but never ran into it with XP.

Freecom 400GB Hard drive not recognized.its a Freecom mobile drive xxs 400gb , my pc just cant recgnize the hard drive


I'll assume your using Windows.
I'll assume it's a USB drive.
I'll assume it is an external drive.
And I'll assume it's formatted as NTFS.

Try using the USB (or FireWire) port for anouther drive to see if that is the problem, if it is then reinstall the driver for the port, through the Computer Managment Concole (assuming yur using windows).

If you formatted the drive as FAT, re-format it as NTFS.

Bigger hard drive


I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.

Well I would recommend upgrading your RAM to 2 GB (Your standard model comes with 1/4 of that) and a 250 GB drive. The RAM would cost you about $80 in parts and perhaps $30 labour and the hard drive should be about $60 in parts and $20 labour. I don't recommend upgrading processors as it can cause warranty problems down the road.
