Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
When i plug my free agent desktop into a power supply it does not turn on.
I do not want to send it back as the warrenty is over but i have some important files i need.
Is there any way of giving it power or could i open it up and remove te data and put it into my computer
I had the same problem and assumed the drive must have been at fault. However, I noticed the power supply (wall wart) wasn't warm as it had been when everything functioned. I contacted Seagate support and they sent me a replacement power supply. It has since failed, but in the interim I found a heavy duty laptop-type powersupply with the same specs. It has worked fine since. Since your unit doesn't power up, I'd check that first. It's the easiest, least expensive thing to do.
