Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
This is pretty low tech but I tapered the edges of an esata cable at the connector which allowed it to be pushed deep enough into the Freeagent Pro to provide a good connection. I used an xacto knife to shave it down, it took 5 minutes, works really well. Ridiculous that Seagate allows this to be released en mass like this but still, a great hard drive other than that.

I am having the same exact problem with the 320GB version with e-Sata. The USB connection works, but I bought it strictly to use the e-Sata connection. I have the ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe which has the onboard e-Sata port. The drive only had the FreeAgent software already on the drive, I do not think my drive came with an install package, and their website does not have one either. Please let me know if anyone has had experience with ANY e-Sata external drive.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
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 the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
dont forget to vote
hope this helps
