Seagate 250GB FreeAgent USB 2.0 Ext Hard Drive with laptop

 Currently I bought a Seagate 250GB FreeAgent USB 2.0 Ext Hard Drive on internet, and i didnt realize it is a external drive designed for desktop. But the thing is my computer is laptop, and my laptop cant see the connection with the external drive. So, I wonder is it supposed to not connect with laptop or because the external drive has problem? Please help!

Whether your computer is a laptop or desktop does not inherently decide if the drive will work or not. If it can't see the connection, there must be another problem with the drive. I would suggest reporting what you have done to try and make it work and anything you notice out of the ordinary (how lights on the drive are acting, noises the drive is making, alerts you see when you plug it into your laptop, etc). That will allow us to better help you find a solution to the problem.

My seagate freeAgent go 250GB is not working. it keeps on flashing when i connected it to my usb


If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

Drive not being recognised by any computer.


USB drives do pack it in. You have answered your own question, I think. Three computers cannot recognize it, must be the drive.
A fall can happen and not leave a mark. A fall to the floor is like a bomb going off for a hard drive. It sounds as if the motor is jammed.

Make freeagent deskot 250GB master hard drive


1) I greatly suggest against making ANY external HD your primary disk.

2) Not many computers support this.

3) The most likely method would involve reisntalling your OS (Windows/OS X) onto the drive.

4) I just noticed this thread is from three months ago... :P
