Pin connecting the USB cable has been damaged. I want a service center in bangalore which can help me in reconnecting the pin.


There are lots of good service shops throughout Bangalore but if you're looking for one to do that repair I recommend using a facility that offers laptop repair as shops that don't may lack the proper tools to disassemble you FreeAgent Drive enclosure. Once at the shop ask the technicians to assess if it will be less expensive to repair the enclosure or to simply sell you a new one and transfer your drive into the new enclosure. Often buying a new one is cheaper.

Try Web Nirnaya, they are qualified to work on laptops and offer data recovery if necessary, link to their site is below.

Hope this helps FixYa,

My mac wont read my external

Connect it to another computer, to see if the Seagate device works at all.

If not, then disassemble the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Is the manufacturer's warranty still valid? If so, exercise the warranty, to get a replacement, at minimal cost to you.

I got a seagate external drive 500 GB all my documents and picture are inside , any computers recognize it ,please help.

The unit has two major points:
* the disk-drive
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter

So, disassemble the unit, and remove the disk-drive,
and connect it as a 'slave' drive in a desktop computer.
If it works, then that adapter has failed.
to buy a replacement enclosure for your disk-drive.

Seagate FreeAgent is flashing but not recognized by computer

Hello sir/ma'am hi, the flashing red means that the hard drive has problems, you usually cannot read any data making it no to appear on your computer. Suggestion: The logical thing to do is get a new one, NOW if you have data on that drive, you need to disassemble it and get the hard drive unit, place it on a computer, run seagate disk manager and pray that you may recover the drive data.

Freeagent Pro: undetectable

When a drive falls while in operation the G-Forces are unbelievable! This causes the read/write heads to crash into the platter which is rotating at 5400 to 7200 rpm in standard hard drives. This causes what is known as a head crash! It damages the read/write heads themselves, Thus your computer no longer recognizes it as a valid hard drive. I have on occasion swapped the platters into a new drive assembly and retrieved the majority of the data, excluding the data from the actual damaged portions of the disks themselves. This is a very costly, time consuming procedure and it is only done on irreplaceable data of high monetary value which warrants the cost of the process. Get back to me if this is your situation. If not all I can suggest is buy 2 external drives and keep a back up copy of all your data and mirror images of your primary hard drive so in the event of future failure you will be immune to data loss. I hope you find this helpful. Of you need further assistance feel free to contact me. I have all the special tools and software (20k worth) for data retrieval

Stand-alone networking

What you want is called a NAS, Networked Attached Storage, which is generally a relatively small device with its own hard drives, a network connection, and a dedicated computer to perform file serving tasks and network communications. Unfortunately, your FreeAgent is only a hard drive, with no file server or network connection, so it must be attached directly to a computer through its USB connection if it is a FreeAgent 500GB, or through its USB, firewire, or eSata connection if it is a FreeAgent Pro 500GB.

There are some NAS's which have USB ports, and if you were to purchase one (not cheap), you could connect your FreeAgent to it as additional storage.

Although probably an unsatisfactory answer, I hope this helps you plan your next step.
