Parhaps currupted cannot open it window says formet it


If you purchased a retail version of this hard drive from seagate they included a CD. On that cd are tools you can run diagnostics from and it can also tell you if it can make the necessary repairs. If you don't have one, ask around- any seagate hard drive product included this CD. Perhaps one of your friend has one.
hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you

Reformat seagate 120gb portable harddisk - freeagent


Hi johnsil,

If the drive shows up in MY COMPUTER then the easy way to format the drive is right-clicking on it then choosing FORMAT. This will erase everything in the drive, so make sure to back up everything in the drive before formatting it.

Now if the drive doesn't show up in MY COMPUTER you may have to goto the Control Panel click on Administrative Tools then select Computer Management then click on the category of "STORAGE", you should see there Disk Management. Carefully look there for your Seagate 120GB Freeagent drive, right-click then choose format, and that should format the drive.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Reinstall software to use my 160GB freeAgent Go USB


Hi, I am assuming that you are referring to a USB based external hard drive called Free Agent, by Seagate I think.

Which operating system are you using ?

Windows XP has native support for USB, and it should automatically detect the hard drive when you plug it in.
It should NOT require any other software to access the drive.

if not:
1) Check that the HD is powered up
2) Try a different USB cable
3) Try a different USB socket

4) Make sure that the HARD drive is correctly formatted:
i.e. Assuming you are running Windows XP
(Vista should have similar facilities)

Goto to the Control Panel -->
Double click on Administrative Tools
Double click on Computer Management
Look down, under storage,
Click on "Disk Management"
Give it a couple seconds to search for drives,
and to populate the list ...

Check to see if the external disk appears in the list:
It should be partitioned with an EXTENDED partition,
containing a LOGICAL drive, and formatted with NTFS.

If necessary, partition and format the drive, assuming
you have not already done so, and the drive does not
contain any data.

If the drive did previously contain your data, you can
either loose the data and re-format it, or you can hire
a data recovery company to repair the damaged drive.

Computer will not recognize the Seagate FreeAgent Pro 500 GB


If the hard drive is new and still unformatted, you will need to format it. Confirm that it is recognized in disk management (start>control panel>administrative tools>computer management) Go to the list on the left and expand "storage." Then click disk management. You should see your drives listed. Find your seagate 500GB drive, right click on it and then click format. It will take awhile for a 500 GB drive but once it is done, the drive should be usable.

WARNING: this will delete any files on the drive, meaning that if it is not new and you have files on it already, then they will be deleted.

Download seagate tools and run the diagnostic utility...this will tell you what's wrong. you can download powermax from same page and this utility can recertify small errors on the hard drive without erasing data.
