    I have had a similar problem. I am going to try my luck by connecting the Dual FireWire attachment that came with the drive (check you box). Hopefully I can abck up my data before sending the disk for replacement.

    The removable eSATA/ usb connector on the bottom of my free agent pro has broken. The usb connector has sucked up inside the piece and i can not retrieve it. I have a MAC and apparently there is now ay fro me to connect the eSATA cable to my computer. I called seagate who told me they  no longer manufacture this piece and that im basically **** out f luck....I have 400 gigs of really important **** on this drive!!! Does any one one of these swappable connections i could borrow? I know that sounds ridiculous but please! i'll pay you to let me use it real quick just so i can save my data! Seagate's data recovery service is outrageous! WHAT TO DO!!!

I have the part you're looking for, a "Seagate FreeAgent MSeries" module. It's a perfect-shape model unit, from one of the marketers in our company that did advertising for the unit. It's in perfect condition, I can take photos for you. Send me what you think a best-price is after I get an e-mail to send the photos to.

Unfortuantly, It seems to be you will have to send the drive out fr reapir. Can you backup the data on it another way? I thought before that you broke off the end of the usb cable off in the case, not the port. If you need any help finding where to send it, I am here to help!

Backup failed.Caused by Lost connection to drive


If you are sure that the USB cable is plugged in correctly, the cable is probably broken. Try replacing the USB cable with another or a new one.

How do i fix it?


Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Need USB cable


Does the one your looking for look like half a hexagon on one side like this: http://img.diytrade.com/cdimg/112060/4830565/0/1196751400/ETM-1302_usb_A_M_to_B_M_print_cable_1_8_m.jpg

Is so you need a printer usb, you can get them at any store that sell printers. Or does it look the same on both ends like this:
http://dl.maximumpc.com/galleries/usb3/usb3_02_full.jpg

You can also get these at your local retailer. they are regular USB cables.

If it is a much smaller connection on one end it is a mini USB and you can ask for regular usb to mini usb at the store.

Where do i get a replacement usb cable for my seagate 100 gb usb 2.0 portable hard drive


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.

Hi there, I have a Seagate 250Gb external Free Agent disk that I want to put in to my laptop computer. Any ideas how to get in to the case without breaking it?


Hi,

I am Satya.

Hope this helps.

You can connect the Seagate 250 Gb external Free Agent disk by using a Usb connector and connect it to the USB port of your Laptop. In this way you can connect the disk to your Laptop computer without breaking it.

Windows will automatically detect the the drive and can be browsed through Windows Explorer as a separate drive.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

I am trying to use a OneTouch 4 Mini to retrieve files from an old PC with Windows98 OS. The USB does not recognize the device.


windows 98 doesn't have support for usb drives, you need to install a driver for the onetouch.

looking at the support pages the requirements state windows xp or newer.

you can try contacting the support and ask for a driver for windows 98
https://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_ask.php

I feel its unlikely they have made a driver for it, but you got noting to lose by asking.

When i connect my seagate via usb nothing comes up on my pc, the light comes on on the external h/d but nothing pops up on the pc? help please i need precious photos on it. thanks


have you try connect your pen drive to the same usb port, is it working?
If Pendrive is working but not the Seagate hardisk. Most propably is your USB power is not enough to support the External Seagate hard disk, you need to supply more power to the Seagate hard disk by using USB Y cable(1 end connect to Seagate hardisk where the other end got 2 USB connector to connect to your PC).

More Hard Drive Space needed


well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

for the RAM, i personally recommend getting the exact same RAM that you have right now, that is because of stability and compatibility. some issues may occur when you use generic plus branded.

Reinstall software to use my 160GB freeAgent Go USB


Hi, I am assuming that you are referring to a USB based external hard drive called Free Agent, by Seagate I think.

Which operating system are you using ?

Windows XP has native support for USB, and it should automatically detect the hard drive when you plug it in.
It should NOT require any other software to access the drive.

if not:
1) Check that the HD is powered up
2) Try a different USB cable
3) Try a different USB socket

4) Make sure that the HARD drive is correctly formatted:
i.e. Assuming you are running Windows XP
(Vista should have similar facilities)

Goto to the Control Panel -->
Double click on Administrative Tools
Double click on Computer Management
Look down, under storage,
Click on "Disk Management"
Give it a couple seconds to search for drives,
and to populate the list ...

Check to see if the external disk appears in the list:
It should be partitioned with an EXTENDED partition,
containing a LOGICAL drive, and formatted with NTFS.

If necessary, partition and format the drive, assuming
you have not already done so, and the drive does not
contain any data.

If the drive did previously contain your data, you can
either loose the data and re-format it, or you can hire
a data recovery company to repair the damaged drive.
