Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
Tested power supply, it tested 12.1 volts DC.
You have to be running NT, XP or Vista to access the drive. I take the power cable out, then plug it back in. Or try rebooting with the hard drive plugged in. Also purchase a USB Extension port so you can unplug the USB when not in use to stave off overheating. Go to Seagate and download Seatools. Also Download the source code for the drive while you are there.

One bad or faulty lead connection can cause a computer to continue restarting on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps
