Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
HI, I come to use this 8 day old drive today and it doesnt work no more. The device cannot be found in windows xp, it does not work on any other usb port or any other computer. I have tried downloading easyuse drive recovery software but it still does not detect the device. I really need the data, the harddrive powers up but makes a clicking noise for about 1 min then stops with the light on. I really need the data from this drive for coursework. I appreciate any advice you may have although I have already gone into safe mode and computer admin settings and tried to detect the drive that way but it still doesnt show up on my pc. thank you for reading my question and i would be very very gratefull for even the smallest advice. many thanks
I have the same problem. I've been use the HD for about one month and now, after making all my backups and copying them in the HD, it crashed! I believe there is a way to open it and recover the data directly from the SATA port. However, if done incorrectly it will void the warranty. I'll be checking here for any other possible solutions.
