Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 320 GB USB 20 Hard Drive
I cannot access my seagate Freeagent drive. IT says "The parameter is incorrect". help?

If your PC is still running Win98 then it probably has a USB version 1.0 port. I don't think the Faster USB version 2.0 devices will work properly even if you have the correct driver - i.e. you have a hardware version conflict. Try Purchasing a USB version 2.0 Daughter board for the PC and plugging the Seagate drive into that iinstead.

Hi welcome to FixYa!
Fortunately I also owned a Seagate Freeagent Go 320GB just like you have. Can you be more specific detailing your error? I don't understand what do you mean by "parameter is in correct".
I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.
If you don't like the letter Windows has assigned to a new drive or you want to organize your drive letters in a certain way, you can change the drive letter.
You can assign the letters C through Z to each drive on your computer.
A and B are usually reserved for floppy disk drives, but if your computer does not have floppy disk drives, you can assign A and B to volumes.
You can see which drive letters are used on your computer by opening Computer.
Open Computer Management by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Computer
Management. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation
In the Navigation pane, click Disk Management
Right-click the partition or drive that you want to change, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
Do one of the following
To assign a drive letter if one has not already been assigned, click Add, click the letter that you want to use, and then click OK
To remove a drive letter, click Remove, and then click Yes to confirm that you want to remove it.
You might need to do some diagnostics to find out what is wrong.
If you have nothing to lose, format the machine.
You have to erase the entries from the Registry. Run RegEdit.
click start type regedit press enter
Use the registry editor and find the key:
F: as in whatever drive you want to change, and then just change F: to G:
If the installation is being run from a network location or if the installation is being run from a directory structure that is several levels deep
(resulting in having too many characters in the path name), this error may occur.
Follow these steps to fix this error:
Copy all the installation files (setup.exe and all other files in the same directory) from the network location or source media (such as the CD) by pressing Ctrl + A or Edit > Select All.
Create a folder on your local hard drive (e.g., Desktop) by right-clicking and selecting New > Folder.
Paste (Ctrl + V) the installation files into the folder.
Double-click setup.exe to run the installation locally.
If the scenarios above are not related to or did not resolve this issue, the error might be caused by something specific to your computer.
The following general troubleshooting tips might help resolve the issue:
Hope this helps.
