Question about Seagate 1 TB SATA II Hard Drive

1 Answer

SATA hard drive not recongised.

I have a SATA hard drive taken out from a Seagate External hard drive. I bought a kit to connect it to a laptop and am trying to connect it to my MacBook with a USB, but it does not recognise it. Even windows does not recognise it. All the USBs and other ports and cables are working perfectly. Hard drive is even humming. It is connected on the same SATA cable as found in PCs. The hard drive is formatted in Fat 32 and another partition is of MAC OSX Extended Journal. It contains 750 GB of important data, which cannot be erased.

Hi, sorry but i have to ask the question , why did you take the drive out of a external drive then buy a kit so as you can use it as an external drive , if its because the Seagate casing is damaged then its highly likely the drive is damaged too .

I bought my seagate free agent go in april of 2011 and registered it as well. I have all my important work layouts on this and the usb connector on the external hard drive broke off and now i cant connect...


First, since you purchased the product in 4/11, you should contact the manufacturer for a replacement housing for the hard drive. If that's unsuccessful (or if you don't have that much time), you can purchase an external docking station. Then remove the hard drive from it's case and insert it into the docking station.

How do i fix an external hard drive (seagate freeagent) that makes a beeping sound and is not recognized by my system ?


Look inside your P.C. 1st to check SATA data connection type.
eSATA is a different connection from SATA so you might need an eSATA data lead if you follow the guide in the link, not sure if it just external connections only and plain SATA connection inside.
Google image 'eSATA' data lead/cable and you will see the difference between the eSATA and SATA connection if you don't already know.

How can i make my seagate hard disk an usb hard


It is quite easy, do not worry.
You only need to bought and USB enclosure, here is a link to many products on ebay
http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=p0.m37.l1313&satitle=hard+drive+enclosure+usb&category0=

then you have to connect your hard drive inside the enclosure and the enclosure to your computer using the usb cable and that's it.
Just be carefull about the enclosure, I guess it is a Hard drive from a desktop, is in it? because some enclosure are for laptop's hard drive.
Also you need to know if your hard drive is SATA or IDE, IDE is the normal gray bus cable with fourty some pins, and the SATA it is a really small cable (I do not use technicims to not confuse you even more).

Also, there are some adapters from IDE/SATA to USB that you can buy in your local computer store (do not go to bestbuy, compusa, ... they only sell external hd), or also get it from ebay.
The only diference between the enclosure and the adapter is that the enclosure looks better :D, and the adapter is just a bunch of cables.

hi..there....i think if you can get e sata cable to connect between external and pc at you country is very bad news..but maybe you can get it in another store...last time when i visit bangkok thailand i'm very happy because i can get all componnet for pc..i buy a internal card reader that include the e sata connection is around 400 baht and the cable connector for it (power and data cable) is around 100 baht. so if you have friend at tahiland (bangkok) you may ask them to buy it for you and send it to your place....

This device will switch off all devices connected to it (including your hard drive) at the same time as your pc is switched off.

There are other models available.
