    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!!!

    Where did you find the part number 100453518? Also, You may be able to simply pull out the broken piece if it didn't damage any parts.

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!

I have a problem with my seagate agent go 500 gb. when plugged in to my laptop it doesn't detect it and it freezes my laptop until i unplug it. how can i get to my files in the external hard drive?


try to connect it to other computer, if it doesn't help, hdd is probably broken. If you disassemble, you will find internal hard drive, which you can try to connect to desktop PC to save your data, or look up for some data recovery company

The connector of my seagate free agent 160gb is broken, can i bypass the connection with an other adaptor in the internal hard drive


Solution No1:
You'll need to take it apart desolder existing cable and solder a new one (standart you can get in any sho).
Note: If you'll mix up wires than you can damage your motherboard or hard drive itself.

Solution No2:
Take it apart, remove hard drive, buy a new 2.5" SATA Caddy and fit you hard drive to it.

I plug my seagate into the computer. it turns on but then nothing


Hi,

Plug one usb into your computer and the other end into the drive.
If the light comes on, all is good. The computer should install the device for you automatically. To access the drive, go to My Computer and double click on the Removable Drive. Now you can transfer files.

Hope this helps

Installation issue - Not recognizing


hmm, no problem plugging in either side, just be sure to do the power cable first. What's doing the beep, beep?

Found a guy who had similar prob, here was his solution:
Go to Control Panel. Click on Device Manager.
Check to see if FreeAgent is shown as a disk drive.
If not, check the device list for any Free Agent device, double click and check driver. No driver installed? Update does not work? On the driver tab….click uninstall device.
Shut down computer. Unplug Free agent USB and power at the drive.
Reboot computer. As it is rebooting, plug in the power cord. Wait a minute or two….then plug in USB cord.

Windows will “found new device” ….. Just let the computer complete the reboot.
Then go to the device manager. Chances are you will find Free Agent in the drives….and in the USB list of devices. Open windows explorer….and you should see you Free Agent as a drive.
Windows will ask you to install manufacturer disk. You have no disk…non needed. Windows has installed the device. Just click on close. I you keep getting windows wants to install device…..ignore it. You can click on “don’t ask again”. (That is if your Free Agent drive is showing in the device manager as a disk…and in windows explorer….along with your other drive or drives.)
If at some later time….your Free Agent drive does not appear….repeat the steps as listed above.
(You may think it is not working….or that it has gone bad. Try this before you try to return.)
Seagate Tools…the new version….does not recognize to diagnose the Free Agent….
I have not tried Seagate Tools after getting the computer to recognize the drive.
I am surprised Seagate does not provide a Tool to recognize their own drives…and install and/or test Free Agent.

This does work for me with Vista. Thought I had lost the drive…. Seagate should provide a patch or a drive that Windows will recognize when you get the “found new hardware” and Windows asks you to insert manufacturer’s installation disk. I do not understand why that is not already there….a driver file for Free Agent...that Windows would install.

I did not buy Pro….because I did not need the backup software. I wonder if those who bought Pro are having these problems.
