Question about Seagate FreeAgent 2TB GoFlex Desktop USB 3.0 USB 2.0 Hard Drive
If your computer or laptop has a problem detecting a USBhard drive or a USB device, and another computer can detect it, then theproblem could be a RF interference problem. Try using an USB cable that is a shielded USB cable (ie. AnUSB cable that has a clear plastic covering and you can see a metallic weavewhich covers the wires) OR a USB cable that has a Ferrite core attached to theUSB cable (the ferrite core is a cylindrical object approximately 30mm long X15mm diameter and it is attached to the USB cable near the connector).

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

Pros: Lots of space, very low price, doesn't require outside power
Cons: Sometimes stops working, no firewire (but still a quick transfer speed)
