Solution No1:
You'll need to take it apart desolder existing cable and solder a new one (standart you can get in any sho).
Note: If you'll mix up wires than you can damage your motherboard or hard drive itself.

Solution No2:
Take it apart, remove hard drive, buy a new 2.5" SATA Caddy and fit you hard drive to it.

What are the parts called - Data connection plug broke off inside freeagent external drive


You can try installing the drive into a new enclosure as long as the internal circuitry of the free agent did not alter the formatting of the hard drive. IE in a buffalo external drive the internal circuitry creates a linux partition on the hard drive that cannot be read by windows directly.

Cannot read


It sounds almost like 2 things are happening,

1. The drive itself it going out or the board inside that is connected to the drive is bad.

2. or the drive is not getting enough power through the USB ports (or too much maybe?)

I have only encountered the beeping issue on my free agent 160GB when it was not getting enough power to spin up the platters.

If you still have warranty on it. I would HIGHLY recommend you call western digital about it.

I have a problem with my seagate agent go 500 gb. when plugged in to my laptop it doesn't detect it and it freezes my laptop until i unplug it. how can i get to my files in the external hard drive?


try to connect it to other computer, if it doesn't help, hdd is probably broken. If you disassemble, you will find internal hard drive, which you can try to connect to desktop PC to save your data, or look up for some data recovery company

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
