SOURCE: 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.

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. Code 43 This message pops up in when i plug in my SeaGate Free Agent GoFlex hard disk.


Try this as a possible fix.
This trick can quickly fix many mysterious hardware failures

The other thing I've heard of happening is a few of the USB 3.0 ports having problems with USB 2.0 equipment. I know it should be back compatible, but Windows can have problems. Try another USB port to see if that helps.

Does the SeaGate cable have 1 or 2 connections to the computer? Unfortunately, most external hard drives need to connect to 2 USB ports to get enough power.

I just looked up this problem on Seagate's website, and they pretty much come up with the same answers. Uninstall and re-install the USB drivers with the SeaGate connected. Or use other USB ports. The other suggestions they have don't make sense, if you can't talk to the thing, how do you run Seatools or checkdisk?

Fixya doesn't allow me to put in another link at this point, so you'll have to copy and drop this into your address bar.

Here's another write-up on fixing the code 43, I wouldn't do number 6.Update BIOS though, USB is working fine with everything else, it's NOT the BIOS that's having a problem.

When I plug it into my computer, it says 'access denied' and prevents me from transferring my pictures to the goflex harddrive.


Sounds like Microsofts nuts user file access system. Try connecting to a non-windows machine i.e Linux - if you see the files, that's your problem.

It sounds like the drive is failing. So you will need data recovery services.

My Seagate harddrive experienced a code 10 error, how do i fix it


code 10 error no driver

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or


if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

My Seagate Freeagent Goflex 1Tb external USB hard disk is not detected when connected. but the light on the diskdrive comes on. Pls advise.


Hello Gravi,

Please try one of the following options.

Try different USB ports.
If that didnt work, then try updating/reinstalling your USBdrivers.
Try after these options a reboot first.

Also take a look at this page where some driver problem for your specific harddrive are explained!

How do I get the saved files from my GoFlex on my new computer


You should be able to just plug it in to USB and read them since the harddrive has aleady been set up and used. The new machine should read it just like it will read a thumb drive you've saved files on. This is one of the big reasons why people like these external drives :) You can take them with you and use on another computer.
