Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
The beeping means that not enough power is being supplied to the device, and as a result, the disc will not spin up (not recognized). I suspect that the reason he was able to once make it work is perhaps he has more USB devices plugged in now...therefore, not enough power to go around. Or perhaps he has swapped cables?? I had this exact same issue when I bought a new cable for my Freeagent Go. I wanted a longer cable, but for whatever reason the cable itself didn't supply enough power; I got that ugly sounding beep (could have been a bad cable I suppose). When I plugged the drive in using my old cable, it worked flawlessly. I would first ask him if he has been plugging in more devices recently. Then I'd get a compatible USB cable that has an extra power connection (when he plugs it in, he'll have to plug into 2 USB ports).
Hope this helps.
