Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
I have one of these wonderful Seagate units which craps out. There is no power, so I have pulled it apart and found that component L13 is burnt out. Can you tell me what L13 is so I can replace it? It appears that it somehow links the negative terminal and the earth path on the board.

The seagate freeagent should be reconigized by windows. The question is are you adding an additional partition or do you want to create a brand new partion. I'm assuming you want to add.
You can add more space to existing primary partitions and logical drives by extending them into adjacent, contiguous unallocated space on the same disk. To extend a basic volume, it must be formatted with the NTFS ile system. You can extend a logical drive within contiguous free space in the extended partition that contains it. If you extend a logical drive beyond the free space available in the extended partition, the extended partition grows to contain the logical drive as long as the extended partition is followed by contiguous unallocated space.
To extend a basic volume
Make note of the number of the basic volume you want to extend.
Selects the basic volume, n, you want to extend into contiguous, empty space on the same disk.
You cannot extend the current system or boot partitions.
size=n The amount of space, in megabytes (MB), to add to the current partition. If you do not specify a size, the disk is extended to take up all of the next contiguous unallocated space.
Hope this helps!

beck up your all files, then install a New Operating system, u install and un-install it, therefore it seems that some files are missing. and the fact is not installing and showing the device again.
so install a fresh O.S, and install it again,, and Enjoy..

it sounds like the disc (inside the hard drive casing) has become jammed or what is known as "stickation". the best way to unstick the disc is usually another sharp blow. the best way to do this is to remove the drive from the external casing and, while holding it by one side, strike the other side downward onto a hard surface like a wood desk. do not strike it on metal or cement as you may cause more damage. make sure the surface is softer than the drive casing. it sounds extreme but it has worked for me on several occasions.

There is about a 40% failure rate on these drives which is extremely high. The problem is a error in the onboard bios. If it is still working you can apply a update that will fix it. If it has "bricked" or locked up then you are out of luck. You can try to return it under warrenty. If you have important data on the drive then you may need the services of a data recovery company to get it off ie $$$ to do.
