USB Drive recognized but is inaccessible
Posted on 2009-04-15
I have a FreeAgent Go drive I am trying to get to work on a Windows XP computer with SP3 installed. This is the second drive i have tried. The first was 1TB Western Digital. Windows would recognize that a drive was plugged in but would not recognize the device.
With the Seagate Go 320GB it recognizes it. Installs the driver and the Device shows up under Hard Drives in device manager. When i try to populate the volume I get the Device Unknown and Status unreadable.
It does not show up in Disk Manger , or in Windows Explorer/My computer.
I have tried different ports/remove and reinstall etc.. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
