External HDD are similar to the normal internal HDD, only difference is that The physical harddrive is only place into the casing with usb terminal port so you can remove the physical HDD. Your casing's usb terminal may be damaged. Borrow a casing for a external usb HDD from a friend that is working and use it to extract your data to a PC. Hope it helps.

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.

Seagate free agent pro 500 gig external hard drive NOT RECOGNIZED


You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

Hard Drive Dropped


Turn off your computer and then plug in the FreeAgent external drive. Then try turning your computer on, it should read.  If it doesn't I would go to the Seagate website for troubleshooting.

External Harddrive Ignorance...


I've seen this happen with hubs being connected to external hard drives before.

Do you have a free usb port on the back of your computer you can plug it into?

That should fix the problem.
