Question about Computers & Internet
Need to pull the case of a FreeAgent320 apart to take DH out and try to recover files from it/ How do i pull the case apart? The compouter does not recognise the drive at all now despite it defenetly spins, and the strip light is not solid, but goes slowly from full to half light intensity and back again
Before you rip that baby apart (I couldn't find a manual for you) Give this a try...it is as much as I could glean about your FreeAgent320:
With model #ST303204da1e1-rk running Vista, window says it is installing the drivers. It should bring up the Explorer window showing the drive was recognized. Sometime the software window for the device will not open. Disconnect, reconnect, reboot. The software is in the device and should install.
Note: IF you can not get the software to auto launch, then go the drive letter for the external drive and click there.
Please leave rating, don't kill the messenger
Thank you kindly

I had similar issues with a Seagate external and was able to access the data and recover it using Seagate File Recovery software without having to crack open the case (plus it had tamper proof screws). That link will let you download a trial version which should help you determine if the data is accessible and then you can decide whether the $129 (manuf. recommended price) for the full software package is worth it. In my case the drive had the exact symptoms yours does and I popped the data off of it in under 15 minutes...best of luck to you.
