I have a Segate Free Agent Desk 1TB External HDD. Today when I plugged it in the power supply, the LED light keeps on blinking. The Drive is not getting detected by my Laptop. I tried it on my Desktop, But...


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

My Seagate Free Agent GO is not working. My laptop does not detect my external hard drive and external hard drive does not power up. Before it used to work good.


Either the power outlet it is plugged into does not have power or the AC power adapter for the drive has failed. Try another outlet. If that doesn't work see if Radio Shack has a replacement AC adapter or contact Seagate to replace it.

I hope this helps.

Seagate 1TB Free Agent Quit Working


Hi,
It looks like its just the ac-adapter that is dead.
I would contact the store you bought the harddrive, and ask if they just can send you a new ac-adapter.
Btw backup means that you have saved your data 2 places.

I have a Seagate Free Agent M Series 750 GB external hard drive. In using it yesterday, I connected to my computer and it was fine. After about 20 minutes the unit shut itself off and now has no power to...


First step, check the power cord, if you have a multi meter, set it to the 20v range DC and test the AC adapter for voltage.

If it is dead you may be able to get a replacement but it's likely cheaper to move the drive into a new enclosure(see the next step)

Stop in at your local computer store, ask the techs to sell you a SATA HDD enclosure and either move the drive into it for you, or if your feeling handy take it home and give it a try yourself(this WILL void Seagates warranty)

Once the drive is in the new enclosure, hook it up to the computer and see if it works, if so you're done. If not, send it to a pro for data recovery. In North America I always recommend Armot-IT Data Recovery(in FixYa Database), if you're in another region add a comment here and I will make an appropriate recommendation.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
