Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have segate free agent desktop 250GB, that left working. it's not recognized anymore by the operating system. The os reads the drive and the usb icon is diplayed on taskbar, but the volume is not displayed on explorer, no unit letter for the hard drive device is assigned. I checked in device manager and in pc management and there's the drive but i cant access it. Hope understand Regards

First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine. try it in different usb ports. Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers. then check. Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check. Also locate the below key and make sure it's value is 3 not 4. HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\usbstor make sure start value is 3 not 4. Let me know if you need further assistance.

If your C drive take up all the 250GB, and the used data is not up to 250 GB( I means there are some free space on your c drive) you could use other partition software to release some free space ( resize partition) then create new partition, with the help of partition software, it could apply the operation without re install OS.

This is a common problem with external drives, I have had it happen to Segate, WD, and a few off brand drives. Usually when one of these drives gets flaky, you have 2 options:

1. do a google search on your particular model on how to remove the drive from the case, then install in a desktop computer
2. use disk recovery software to attempt retrieval of files

The first on will work if there is a problem with the driver interface to usb board that is built into your device. By installing in a desktop, you are bypassing this potentially bad part. This step will also make the 2nd option run faster if you have to resort to it.

A good rule of thumb on these devices is to never have only 1 copy of the data.

Good luck retrieving your data!

My WD 250GB passport portable hard drive is not recognized


If your system detects the connected device that is a good start. Was the drive formatted for another operating system? Certainly try the drive on another system and/or another drive on your system.

I have seagate free agent 500gb when i plugged it 1st time everything was fine, now windows vista is telling me that cannot recognize it


Power cycle the drive itself; once the interface is reset or the power restored to the external drive, Vista will be happy with it again (I rather expect.) Don't forget to put vibration isolation mounts under your drives if summer construction/excavation is coming.
