Plug the drive directly into the wall outlet...usually Code 43 means it's not getting enough power.

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.

Sounds like driver problem to me. Re install the driver by using installation disc, or if you have lost your CD, than use this Driver Update Software to update. I hope this helped.

Install seagate expansion


New drives have to be readied for use. Try Start > Run (aka Search in Win 7) type dskmgmt.msc. Look for your drive there. It should be without a drive letter. Right clicking will give you the options of initializing, creating disc partitions, and assigning logical drives. If this seems a little daunting. A wizard should load. If not there is refresh icon on the tool bar. You may want break down the 1TB down to a few partition because of the large size.
