I have just purchased a Seagate FreeAgent External Hard drive, 500GB USB2. Setting up was nothing, just had to connect the two Leads.
From my previous Seagate External Hard Drive which is not working any more I have BounceBack Launcher Software but it will not recognise the new Seargate. It goes throught the process of Sizing 'C'&'G' drives ok but then a window says 'Connect & Start up drive to backup to.' I've unplugged the USB2 lead & plugged it back again several times. On each ocassion it tells me that it has recognised the backup Drive & was Initialising Drivers. After a few moments the same Window appeared, 'Connect & Start up drive to backup to.'
The Seagate is there in My Computer.
I have done A New Driver install from Windows but it says no New Drivers, what it has is the latest. Something to that effect.
sorry dont have the answer.. could it be that the software was only licensed with the previous drive. Send an email to Bounceback click here free back up software powered by acronis from seagate click here
Hi Solartopi Im not sure ive read it correctly,but the drive appears in my computer but you cant back up to it using the Bounceback software is that correct? can you copy n paste to the drive or "send to"
Also have you tried different back up software such as the seagate disc wizard ro something like click here
'The Seagate is there in My Computer' - means that from START > My Computer. So It's installed. No Software came with it.
NO I can't Backup with BounceBack. Sizes everything but Stops at backup. Asking me to 'Connect & Start up drive to backup to.'
'can you copy n paste to the drive or "send to" - I have not tried that yet I took the easy backup choice first. I used to do that with my Old 120GB Archos External Hard Drive. Used to take ages to complete.
