SOURCE: Seagate Free Agent Drive cannot be modified? Worked before...

Ok,

Sounds like it's one of three things then

Disk trouble from unplugging the usb while the unit is still "running" and not yet finalized. Running CHKDSK /? /F in the run box where ? = extrenal drives lettrer. Then restart the computer(done from windows PC with drive attached)

Shell trouble I have already advised a dozen or so people this week that if CHKDSK doesn't work, replace the shell with a new one and see if the hard drive works in the new shell.

Failed harddrive, of course this is always an option. If neither of the above suggestions works then it's possible the hdd has failed and you may need to send it to a pro if you have any files on it that need retreiving.

Hope this helps FixYa, if you need additional help just reply to this by adding a comment.

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.

Try to copy something else to it, if that does not work you have something wrong with the computer or drive. If so rip to your hard drive then move over to the external drive.

Try this:

1. Turn off the power supply to the hard drive.
2. Turn off your PC/laptop.
3. Connect the hard drive to the PC/laptop.
4. Turn on both devices.

It worked with mine.


You could also try installing Seagate Manager which can check for errors on the drive.

My Seagate Free Agent GO is not working. My laptop does not detect my external hard drive and external hard drive does not power up. Before it used to work good.

Either the power outlet it is plugged into does not have power or the AC power adapter for the drive has failed. Try another outlet. If that doesn't work see if Radio Shack has a replacement AC adapter or contact Seagate to replace it.

I hope this helps.

Seagate 250GB FreeAgent USB 2.0 Ext Hard Drive with laptop

Whether your computer is a laptop or desktop does not inherently decide if the drive will work or not. If it can't see the connection, there must be another problem with the drive. I would suggest reporting what you have done to try and make it work and anything you notice out of the ordinary (how lights on the drive are acting, noises the drive is making, alerts you see when you plug it into your laptop, etc). That will allow us to better help you find a solution to the problem.

Data Storage

Make sure you are storing them in both places. I have a hunch that even though you are storing them in the my documents folder it is the one on the external drive that is storing them & when you are trying to delete the computer is reading them as stored to the external & is deleting from there. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

In this case the MOST effective way is to try some data recovery program to see if it can help rescue your data on your Seagate external.
