Well..it's usually due to a communications error. Try to reconnect to the drive, according to the user guide.

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.

Tip

Restoring your iTunes Library backup


When you need to restore your backed up iTunes Library from your external hard drive to your computer, follow these steps:

Quit iTunes.
Locate your external hard drive.
Mac: On the Desktop or Finder sidebar.
Windows: In My Computer

Drag the iTunes folder (backed up earlier) from your external hard drive to whatever location you desire on your internal hard drive. It is recommended that you choose the default location for the iTunes folder, which is:

Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
Windows Vista or Windows 7: \Users\username\My Music\
Open iTunes while holding down the Option key (Mac) or Shift key (Windows).

In the resulting dialog, click the Choose Library button.

Select the iTunes folder you just moved to the internal hard drive.
Click Choose.

You should of got an error message after it wouldn't open. Pls try to post it so we can see what happened. Sometimes the picture will be open down at the bottom of the email which you may not notice because your trying to work with the attachment. If you find them at the bottom, (it matters which format they come down in) right click/ copy/ go to my pics/ paste or save pic as/ then select destination folder. You can also click on the pic and it will ask you what you want to do. Anything that goes wrong 99.9% of the time will give you the error message. Very Important!!!

I have a freecom 400gb external hard drive plugged in to my usb 2.0 port when i turn it on i get a message saying it will perform faster if its plugged into a usb 2.0 port any ideas


This means that although your hard drive is capable of handling usb 2.0 speeds, your PC has the older USB ports or if your PC has USB 2.0 ports, you don't have USB 2.0 drivers installed. You will most likely find USB 2.0 drivers from your motherboard manufacturers website.

I have a maxtor external hard drive on drive f,I have moved my home movies onto this drivefrom my documents,if I then try to delete these from my documents it also removes them from my f drive to,the idea...


Now, when you "copied" the files how did you do it? Are you sure you didn't create shortcuts, then transfer those to the new hard drive?
If you're not sure, try opening two windows, 1 being your "my documents" folder and the other being the "f" drive. Put them side by side. Now highlight all the files you want to copy (hold down the ctrl key on the keyboard to make multiple selection) and once all the desired files are highlighted, drag them over to the other open folder (f drive). This should make independent duplicates of all the files. 
I apologize if i sounded condescending, i'm just unsure of your skill level.

I have a freecom external hard drive which has been working fine until last night when it has started clicking and not being recognised at all by my laptop. I have all my pictures and videos on this hard...


Hi,

oh dear it sounds like the hard drive may of failed.

The clicking is generally the head hitting the end stop.

In the past I have managed to recover drives just long enough by sticking them in the freezer for 24 hours, taking it out and hooking it back up an hour or so later.

Or the drop fix occasionaly works, drop the disk in a flat surface from a couple of feet high.

If you try either of these its entirely at your own risk but failing sending it off to a data recovery house theres not really much you can do I am afraid.

Sorry I couldnt of been more help

Regards

Nick

hi there,
sounds like you have a hardware problem...you should look into trying this drive on another system to see if the same thing is happening without the drive software ...and if it works try to recover all your data from this drive as soon as possible...hardware problems are most time intermittent ... so they work now then say after a while they stop...

External Hard Drive


some external hard drives comes with software that would enable you to backup entire files/folders with a single click or command. Some with a built in switch that perform the same action.
As for an entire OS, you said you want to "move" the entire system? I guess you can do this using a program like norton ghost, that will create an exact image of your OS and place it to your hard disk.

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.
