SOURCE: Seagate FreeAgent External 500GB HDD - Data Recovery

well firstly if u wana recover ur data u have to make the external hdd power up but thats the major area of issue that its not powering up. the difference in plug doesnt make a difference cuz u can use the same plug,the voltage is same thorugh out in ur place from the substation. so it might be a possibility that when u connected ur hdd,the power ON/OFF switch was awredy ON IF hdd has one. so wat i feel is dat u can try opening the hdd and then connect the hdd to ur desktop with help of the BUS CABLE used to connect the HDDs in desktops. so in dat case i would suggest that u go through the manual of ur external hdd to see how to access the the casing in which the hdd is there.then if u happen to get thorugh n it turns on then u dont have to recover ur data. it would still be there. HOWEVER,its recommended that u dont try these things personaaly if u are'nt too tech savy. u shud consult a tech or a freind who knows abt this.

I think the product is no more available. So I suggest you to contact your e-bay vendor and demand him to provide suitable adapter.. other wise change the HDD to any Western Digital Product

My laptop suddenly will not recognise the seagate device,


Download "Testdisk & PhotoRec 6.10" from www.download.cnet.com
and follow the instructions. TestDisk is a powerful data recovery utility. It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally erasing your Partition Table).
Once you install the program, you can find step-by-step instructions in google. This program is really easy to use and will fix your hdd.
