Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Purchased the sytem about one month ago, set it up (easy as), downloaded files off main computer, loaded other stuff on it, recovered from it over the past couple of weeks, went to use it the other day, will not connect.
Tried all the usual tips and help as mentioned on several sites - nothing. Unit is making an audible crackle sound not heard before on startup and disk is rotating.
Through it away or send it back to dealer?
My solution was not software but the heads had collapsed the dealer replaced it with a 500GBbut unfortunately I lost any data I had on the disk.Cost to recover data was far greater than accepting loss and starting again. Thanks

Go to the seagate web site. They have a windows download tool that can fix most problems. Worked well for me. http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=seatools-win&vgnextoid=552bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD

Use the cable suplied with the disk -- connect to two USB ports to give it enough power
