Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
I had my computer formatted and backed everything up with the Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB. Now my computer does not recognize the new hardware. I must be missing the necessary drivers to this program. Do you know a safe place on the internet in which I can download the drivers? Yes! I lost the CD! Silly me! I had the same problem with the HP printer and after downloading those drivers it works. I think I am missing a lot of drivers on the windows XP program that were there before I sent it in to be formatted! Thanks, Dodie
Try doing flea power & the power cycle.
1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.
And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.
Restart the system & check.
2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.
Restart the system.
If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this :
Check this before you try to edit the registry values.
Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.
And delete all references to the external hard drive.
And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB
and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.
After restarting the system, the drive should be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Also if you still need driver:
This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.
You can download the Driver Magician from this link :
Download the reg key from this link :
then doule click & select ok.
Run the program and select update drivers, it will list the list of pdated drivers.
Select the drivers and select download drivers.
If it does not download just select the driver you need and at the bottom you would see a link,
Just copy that link and download from your browser or download manager, I use orbit downloader.
Live, Love, Laugh.
