No external hdd has a cd or a manual, cause their is none required for it. It is as simple as using a flash drive. You need to go into My Computer (if using XP ) or Computer Window ( if using Vista or 7 ) and when you connect the Seagate to the computer you will be able to see an option poping up under removable storage devices. If it does not come up then return the product, its bad.

I have a Seagate Free Agent Desktop External Hard Drive. I cannot get any of my computers to access the drive. I fear the drive has crashed.


get linux puppy and boot the cd while your hard drive is plugged in, if you can mount under puppy linux and see your info choose the info you need and offload onto an external usb, copy the files over, dont move them as if disk is corrupt you could lose info, then reformatt the drive, just to let you know there seems to be alot of hard drive issues with seagate lately

How to partion seagate Free Agent Pro in Windows XP


First make sure that you have a bootable Windows Vista installation DVD, as you will be unable to use your computer if you don’t. Next, download the GParted Live CD and burn it to cd.
Boot off the GParted cd, and you will see your hard drives in the drop-down list. The first drive is typically your boot drive, but you can check the Flags column to make sure.


Next you’ll need to right-click on the partition and choose Resize/Move from the menu.


Now you can either use the New Size textbox, or just click and drag the partition to make it smaller (or bigger). When you are done, click the Resize/Move button.This doesn’t immediately apply the changes, though. You can make other changes to your partitions and then when you are finished click the Apply button.Depending on the amount of data and the speed of your computer, it can take quite a while to resize the partitions. On my computer it took more than 30 minutes.


Once it’s done, quit, remove the live cd and then reboot your computer. Unless you are very lucky, you’ll be greeted with this horrible error message saying “Windows Failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.”
Hope this helps!

You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

Try connecting it to another computer. If you can see your data then back it up etc.
After you have recovered your data connect it to your computer, from Disk Manager, remove the partition, recreate it again and then format the drive, hopefully your external drive will be operational again.
There is a possibility that the hard disk has died and you will have lost your data. If you are desparate, hard drive data recovery companies charge an arm and a leg to recover data from dead drives.
