I have a problem with a Freecom portable HDD. I will start from scratch with what happened.
I have my own Freecom Tough drive 320 GB. I borrowed my friends Freecom portable HDD XXS. I plugged his in to my pc at work and it recognised with no problems at all. I could use it as normal. I then plugged my portable tough drive into the other usb port and my HDD password software conflicted with my friends HDD. Every time I plug my friends HDD in I need to put in MY password. I then did the following.
1) Backed everything up
2) Formatted my friends portable HDD to FAT32 which was what it was on before.
After the whole process had been completed I then plugged it into another laptop (my Personal Laptop with no password software loaded on) and it will NOT show up in MY COMPUTER. It will however show up in safely remove hardware option at the bottom of the screen. I have read a few posts and have had a look at the disc management but nothing shows up.
Can anyone advice me on what I can do get life back into the HDD. Could there still be password software stored on it which is stopping me from running it.
Any help would be great.
