    Thanks for the offer of assistance. I was running it on a Mac under OSX 10.4. It was formatted as a FAT 32 drive, and apparently this can cause problems with macs. 
    I tried several different Macs, and a PC to no avail; but then after leaving it switched off overnight it suddenly started to behave properly and my Mac could read it. I ran out and bought a new drive and backed it all up asap. It's still behaving properly now, having had it's little tantrum.
    Regards

I have an external freecom 400gb hard drive


The chances are that you would have burnt the Power IC's, so there might not be any damage to the Hard Disk itself. you culd try buying a cheap External Enclosure at the closest IT store or moun the Hard drive on to a desktop computer. you should be able to retrive the data.

Freecom Hardrive "Malfunction"


Not necessarily your information (data) was lost. The freecom hard drive might have some problems installing itself or some connection issues. I would take it to a data recovery technician. Of course there is always a 50 50 chance that you lost it or not. Wish you the best, Good luck

Freecom problem 60 gig porharddrive - wont recognise backup drive


Hi Walter,

Given you may have unplugged it hot, chances are good that you've buggered the file structure but most of your data should still be there for retrieval.

Are you up for some tricky steps and wagering a chance at causing a little more damage in the process to do it yourself for free or would you prefer I point you in the directions of a pro who can do it for you without causing any additional damage?

For option one just reply back here by adding a comment saying you want to try it, for option 2 just leave a comment saying you'd like a pro and what region(Country & State/Prov) you are in and I'll get you in good hands.

Freecom 400GB Hard drive not recognized.its a Freecom mobile drive xxs 400gb , my pc just cant recgnize the hard drive


I'll assume your using Windows.
I'll assume it's a USB drive.
I'll assume it is an external drive.
And I'll assume it's formatted as NTFS.

Try using the USB (or FireWire) port for anouther drive to see if that is the problem, if it is then reinstall the driver for the port, through the Computer Managment Concole (assuming yur using windows).

If you formatted the drive as FAT, re-format it as NTFS.

My 400gb freecom external hardrive won,t uncompress my files. i have recently reset my laptop back to factory settings. i dont know if this the cause of the prob but all i was ok b4. can you help please?


Hi,
Have you tried moving the files onto your laptop and uncompressing them there?

Did you have Winrar (or any other copressing software) installed on the laptop before you went back to factory settings? Are the compressed files on the external drive in the .zip or .rar (or another) file format?
