Where can i buy a seagate external drive circuit board to replace one I "fried" by overvaulting my current one?

Spare PCBs aren't usually avaiable as such. Unless something simple like a polyfuse blew on the board, then the original is probably toast. Your next option would be to obtain an identical drive and perform a transplant. But it will have to be identical - possibly down to the software revision.: (You may still have problems as tables of bad blocks are maintained by the controller)

I burned out my external hard drives PCB board and I am unable to find a new one

The Printed Circuit Board ON THE Harddrive inside the Seagate FreeAgent, or the small PCB inside the Seagate FreeAgent's external enclosure? (Case)

If you are referring to the small PCB that the Harddrive connects to, and has the USB cable coming from it, just buy an external enclosure, and install the Harddrive into it.

If your Seagate is like the one in the link above, it has a laptop size Harddrive in it, and it is a SATA unit.

2.5 inches across in width. (2 and a half inches)

This is an example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

IF you are referring to the PCB on the Harddrive itself, good luck.

One method would be to buy another harddrive like the one in the Seagate FreeAgent, and use it's PCB so that you can retrieve your information.

Then reinstall the PCB on the new harddrive.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Where can i purchase a replacement board for my seagate barracuda 7200.12? the usb slot has snapped off the board.

This is an internal hard rive and therefore does not have a USB slot. I assume you are referring to the SATA connector.
The control board is not an item that can be bought separately. You may be able to buy a used drive on ebay.
Try and find someone who can solder the connector back on for you.

Hi I have a seagate raptor 3.5" V2R1 external hard drive and the socket on the board that you plug the cable ( USB on one end) into from your PC has come of the main board...can the board be...

Here's your solution, I had the same problem. Purchase Thermaltake Black Widow PC Gaming Hard Drive eSata + USB Docking Station (part number: ST0005U). I got mine at Best Buy for $55, but I'm sure you can find it online for much less. Good luck - trust me this works..... oh and by the way, dont buy a SATA-to-USB cable because your USB port on your PC does not provide enough power to the hard drive and you won't be able to access your drive.
