You now need to reformat the drive to FAT32 or NTFS system.
Click start/control panel/admin tools/computer management/.

On R?H side select disc management. All drives will be displayed and you can format the drive by right click and select format.

Windows xp not recognize external hard drives


If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery software.I had succeed with Tenorshare data recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus attack etc.
You can download it and scan your external hard drive for free to preview whether your files can be recovered.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryprofessional.htm After you recover your data,you can format it to get it fixed.

You might have to go in Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager ... from the Control Panel - and then Format that disk before it will be recognized as a Letter drive like D or G or something like that.

I have a WD and another brand of external drives. And I had a similar issue with the 2nd one - I had to format it 1st.

A customer of mine formatted a drive for Mac OS X and thus cannot use it in WIndows. Mac can read NTFS from Windows I believe, but Windows cannot read the Mac OS X format.

How can recover data from free agent desktop hdd


Well you should have gone in and marked the sectors that you think are bad, by formatting it odds are you wiped the data off it, you can try a low level recover but I dont think your going to find much. Sorry format means format.
