See my post here about the same drive:

More then likely you would have just fried the PCB.

    Actually it's a known problem:

    If it's under warranty call Seagate tech support.
    It looks like they will "unstick" the drive (with data intact) for free.

    If out of warranty you can possibly fix it your self:

I'm not sure I understand you correctly but this is what I think.
You tried to use the drive in an external case and the power supply was 19v. The drive really needs 12v. When you put it back inside a PC the bois does not detect it.

Id say it is destroyed. Do not wast you time with it.
If you think it is burned then it probably is.

If you have difficulty in finding a place of spare parts for your external hdd,
1) The most simple you go to your nearest computer store, they will manage it for you.
2) you can find parts and spares center for your hardware at ebay.com. (Rejister for your state, Australia)

and the last option

you can send your hard disk ecternal to me, because I have to do the repairs computer hardware, but costs a bit expensive because you have to send it to me in Malaysia.

thanks and regards

Tried to boot the computer in bios. Check if the harddrive is detected in bios. If not detected. Shut down the system,take out the power cable.open the tower and disconnected the hdd IDE cable and connect it to a differnet IDE port. Restart the system and boot in bios check if hdd detected. If still not detected possible issue with hdd. Try connecting on different computer if still issue persist replace Harddrive.

Mistakenly plugged maxtor one touch 2 into wrong power adapter


Well Most Likely The Circuit Board Burnet Out Since Its 12V And When Plugged Into A 19V Supply It Will Burn Out Instantly Because It Over Charges The Circuits. So Its Not Possible To Repair Such Damage But You Can Take Out The Hard Drive And Plug IT Into A Desktop Computer And Use It At Home Or As An Online Hard Drive To Store Files

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z. You should then see a prompt like this: F3 T> If not, swap TX & RX wires. Access Level 2 (type /2): F3 T>/2 (enter) F3 2> Then spin down the (disconnected) motor: F3 2>Z (enter) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs F3 2> Very carefully, remove the cardstock that you placed between the PCB and the drive head contacts. Carefully replace and tighten the 3 loose screws. I suggest using a small piece of masking tape to help you hold the screws while you put them back in place. Then start the motor: F3 2>U (enter) Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.093 secs F3 2> Next go to Level 1 (type /1): F3 2>/1 (enter) And do a S.M.A.R.T. erase (create S.M.A.R.T. sector): F3 1>N1 (enter) Cycle power to the drive, then do partition regeneration: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter) After 15-30 seconds, you should see something like: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 10% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs Do not turn off drive until you see this message. Once seen, drive can be turned off. Power down everything, place drive back into your computer, and confirm that it's working." Thanks.
