The connection will be the same (desktop or laptop, USB 2.0/3.0). Find an free USB Type A port on your computer. Connect the appropriate end of the USB cable to the Seagate hard drive and the other end to the computer's USB port. If you do not have any free USB ports, then you will need to get a USB hub or add a USB card to the desktop. You may need a powered USB 2.0 hub to ensure that the external drive works properly. (Warning: not all hubs are sold with the power adapter. Hard drives that loose power are often at risk of losing data.)

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Seagate Free Agent Desktop Drive Not Recognized

I took my enclosure apart completely (not recommended since it was difficult breaking the snapping points), and I hooked up the drive just like an internal HDD. The BIOS was able to detect the drive so nothing is wrong with the drive itself.

I've also read that the controller on some of the FreeAgent drives fail. Mine started making buzzing sounds and finally failed. So you can take the drive out and put it in your computer, get a new enclosure, or send it back to Seagate where they should replace it.

SOURCE: Seagate Free Agent Drive Cannot be Modified on Mac G5

First of all Hello John :)

The new seagate drive you got needs to be unpartitioned and its file format system needs to be deleted and changed.

NB: You will lose all your data so make sure that you copy everything useful off it before you do these steps.

1. Get hold of a windows PC and right click on my computer
2. Choose manage ... choose disk management right click on the drive and delete the partition type
3. delete again until it comes unpartitioned space
4. Then go to your mac and you should be able to format it as a regular Mac drive.
5. If the Windows PC is inaccessible. Get hold of a copy of Linux UBUNTU distro. Boot your MAC from CD choose to boot os from CD (don't worry it will install nothring on your MAC it will just use the CD but make sure you choose the right option)
6. Keep your hard drive attached so it gets detected during bootup. Once the UBUNTU OS boots choose GParted and from there do the same thing i explained above.

Hope that this was of help :)

Cheers
(please take some time to rate solution)
