Could the Freecom Tough Drive 500GB turn computer off? It is happening with my computer pretty often. I did experiment with another computer. Another computer was shut down as well. I have already come to conclusion that it is because of the hard drive.

Wouldn't surprise me, I just fixed a Dell xps that wouldn't boot from cd/rom or hdd. Whenusing a different hdd it booted fine. After 3 days & finally testing it on another machine via usb,so I could scan it, there were 49 viruses that apparently can shut down a hdd,cd/rom, even an entire pc. Could also be a problem with the power board for the hdd if it plugs in usb. I have an issue currently where if I plug anything into my card reader it bsod's on me.

Invisible network hard disk


well, if you can Ping it, then the firewall is not likely going to be blocking it. Regardless, which product do you have ? The Silver Stone 2-drive NAS ? If yes, you should be using the FNS Assistant (FNSA)
The Freecom Network Storage Assistant helps you to locate your Freecom SilverStore 2-Drive NAS in your network. It can also be used to:
- quickly open the SilverStore 2-Drive NAS configuration website.
- configure the basic settings.
- mount shared network folders.
a) Start the FNS Assistant and select the device from the device list.
b) Go to "Web interface of your Freecom Network Storage device" for initial configuration

hope that helps.

Yes this is possible.

Although not common, if there's a bad short somewhere in the drive or drive enclosure it could be wreaking havoc on the 3.3V portion of your computer which could cause crashing or shutting down.

If you need data off the drive you can try moving it into a new enclosure but I wouldn't consider the drive reliable if it's survived a short.

Freecom harddrive beeping


Had the same problem. Just checked with their tech support: regular beeping can mean that there is not enough power going through the unit. I tried another USB port on the back of the computer (ie one connected directly to MB) and it worked fine.

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...
