My card reader is erasing pictures before I can download them


Try go to device manager and delete the 9 in one card reader, then tell device manager to scan for new hardware, the 9 in 1 card reader should be re-detected, drivers should be re-installed and the reader assigned a new drive letter. Good luck!

Seagate FreeAgent Desk 500GB not reconized and just beeps


Hi, anyone looking at this tip please be patient as the link that was below is changing to another site, it shows a link from You Tube on how to take the Seagate apart so anyone with the problem with the unit just making beep sounds and not being reconized by their P.C.
As all the threads i saw like my 1st thread reporting about my friends Seagate FreeAgent Desk 500GB asking about his problem and no-one was getting replies, and they where getting frustrated, I decided to find out. Someone has replied to my other thread with the same answer as taking it apart and connecting it to a P.C. So to help others who need their important files from the external HardDrive I have made a step by step guide so even novice P.C. users like myself can attempt to sort it out without being charged loads $-£ etc.. It seems unfair for all these users to buy something new and with in 1 week - 2 months it fails and they have important files etc.. stuck on the HardDrive and being charge to retrieve it. I'm not looking to cause any trouble just want to help others out. (link no longer availiable, it is being amended)

If the drive is not being detected by the computer anymore it already mean one thing its already bad, and you can still try to recover the data inside it by contacting Seagate so they can send you a software that you can use in retrieving the data inside it and yes I belive it has a 5 year warranty from Seagate...

Computer will not recognize the Seagate FreeAgent Pro 500 GB


If the hard drive is new and still unformatted, you will need to format it. Confirm that it is recognized in disk management (start>control panel>administrative tools>computer management) Go to the list on the left and expand "storage." Then click disk management. You should see your drives listed. Find your seagate 500GB drive, right click on it and then click format. It will take awhile for a 500 GB drive but once it is done, the drive should be usable.

WARNING: this will delete any files on the drive, meaning that if it is not new and you have files on it already, then they will be deleted.
