i have the seagate freeagent 1.5TB and yes i know it's very buggy and poor quality , it's the only external HDD i have right now so ... cant complain .anyway , i've been struggling these past 2 weeks on how to get it works but so far , not very possitive result . sometime it does , sometime it doesnt . the thing is like it has a mind on its own . it works whenever it feels like , freeze the the console whenever it doesnt feel like it .anyway , i read on the usb compatitbility list that it works under ios 222 . i just wonder how do i make this switch . i have 4.0 system menu with cios38 rev 13b right now and it's all installed under ios 249 . what do i need and where shoud i start . thx in advance .
Hope this helps.

Press at the bottom right of the post if this response was of any assistance.
I have a free agent, i also had this problem.
Whats happening is that the hard drive is going into sleep mode.
You can download a copy of "Seagate FreeAgent Tools" and disable the sleep timer.
I have a FreeAgent too and cant get it to work at all let alone let it go to sleep
What size? What cios?
I would normally ask if you changed which port it was plugged in to. With, if you're looking at it from behind, standing up, USB slots on top, would have the Power+data on the right, and Power USB on the left. But I know you've already seen the thousand threads where people say their hard drive doesnt work then post 30mins later saying "oh i switched the port and it works now." So i wont even bring that up.
Old news now - but I have my wii running 99% with Freeagent 1tb & uloader 2.1 by hermes.
