Tip

OMG! it worked! I have a 500 gb seagate and I dropped it very hard on the floor....


My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! 
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! 
Good luck to you too!

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.

The USB port on my seagate 500GB external drive has broken off, and is somewhere inside the case.


You should be able to pop open the enclosure to retrieve the hard drive. You may need to take out a few screws.

Once you've done that, you can purchase another external USB enclosure to replace the broken one.
