Power Light comes on, no function what so ever


Check to make sure that the FireWire or USB cables are
correctly attached and firmly seated in both the drive and
computer's FireWire or USB ports. Disconnect them, wait 30
seconds, and reconnect them. If the drive is still not
recognized, restart your computer and try again. If they are
correctly connected and your drive still does not power on,
trying using the optional power sharing cable, described in
section 2.3 Connecting the Optional Power Supply of the LaCie Mobile Hard Drive User Manual.

I plug in my free agent go external hard drive to my pc but it wont even show that is connected in my drives... it works fine on my laptop all of the software is on the drive but I am unable to download it...


Sounds like either a Bios problem, or just needs drivers installed in the non working problem.

You may have a USB conflict.

Try to remove some items in your hardware manager under windows, then let windows re ad them, that may fix your problem.

My external hard drive wont conect to my computer.


Is this a new drive? has it worked before? the usual sequence is to connect the external drive to a power source first, and then connect the usb cables to the PC. IF you know the usb cables are good and have verified that they are connected properly, try connect to a different usb port on the PC, sometimes ports go bad. If that still doesn't work, the most likely the hard drive has gone bad.

Seagate external drive locked in "read only" ,was working fine...


This seems to happen when it's been connected to another computer. Are you running FreeAgent Sync? If so force a sync and the read only problem should go away.

External Hard drive wont show files or name


Even though you may hear the motor turning in your external drive the drive may not be able to read the information on the platter(s) because the arm isn't working. This cannot be fixed; you'll have to buy another external drive.
There are services that can retrieve the data on the broken drive. Google "data recovery services" and prepare to spend big bucks.

PC wont detect external hard drive


Does the drive have a socket for external power?  or do you have a USB cable with 2 usb and 1 mini usb?
Sounds like it needs external power.

Verbatim external 640gb harddrive is unreconised.CONSTANTLY.


ok.. here's a few ideas...

Before Connecting the external drive:

first close ALL RUNNING PROGRAMS
REINSTALL DRIVERS..REBOOT
make sure no programs are running once again...
make sure your usb cable is WORKING...

NOW...
Connect.....Wait for it (a minute or two MAX)....

If this doesn't work, then I suggest using a few google searches..
Try the following/similar: Searchwords

External Hard Disc Recovery Tool (or toolkit)

*Also, Never NEVER erase any default/hidded files that came preinstalled/included on that drive....(eg...system files)...

let me know if this helped...c-tekk@hotmail.com
