Try Seagate.com or newegg.com if you can't find one at a local computer store. You can try using a regular USB cable, the second usb on the original cable is in case your computer does not power the drive on a single usb connection.

It is possible the usb port is not giving enough power for the device, theres a cable the allows you to connect the device to 2 usb ports to get more juice, maybe that could help.

I have a Seagate 800GB extenal USB hard drive. The port on this hard drive, to which the USB data cable connects, is damaged. Are there any vendors who can repair this port? If not, are there any other...


You can purchase an "empty" disk-drive enclosure, and then "transplant" your current disk-drive into the new case. That should recover 100% of your data.

Take the old enclosure to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a "compatible" new enclosure.

Probably $20 to $40.

Tryi8ng to install portable 120GB hard drive (seagate)


If your USB ports do not supply enough power (older computers) then the drive may fail to show up in My Computer.
The Seagate should have a special Y cable. There are two USB connectors on one end that must both plug into your computer - one for data and power - the other for power only. The other end of the cable has the mini USB which plugs into the Seagate.
