What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.

Some laptop manufacturers use the 4 pins to the side of the data connection to force Master / Slave. Do you have a jumper shorting 2 of these pins? If so, remove the jumper and try it again in your external caddy. Had this problem 2 weeks ago with a Toshiba notebook having the Blue Screen of Death. Removed the jumper and then the disk worked perfectly!! Strange but True.

SOURCE: My Seagate HArd Drive Part 9y7686 Dosen't turn on

I have suggested to a few people with Seagate drive issues that it could be a short with a diode between 12V and Gnd.

Put a meter across the power input of your drive enclosure. If it's reading about 1 Ohm, then you have a short and it would be worth opening the case and looking for a small black diiode marked BUX C??? (??? are numbers but vary). This is a known weakness in Seagate (especially Baraccuda) drives and killed one of mine without warning. Unfortunately, I don't know which drive is inside your case.

If it is the diode, then you will tell because a meter across it should read something like 10MegOhms. If it reads more like 1 Ohm then it's shorted. Cliping out the diode and reassembling should then let the drive run long enough to back up your data, or replace the diode (an SMD 1N4004 has been used for this) for a better fix.

If it's not the diode, I can't help.

SOURCE: Seagate Free Agent Problem

i have the exact same problem... not sure what caused it... there was a massive power spike here, and that could be it... of cource most of the electronics fried by that do not even turn on, while that turns on just fine and flashed the yellow light...

the drive sounds fine itself, so the problem is most likely in the Seagate FAP case itself, probably the internal circuitry, as when i turn it on the drive spins up normally and does not make and noises that are the tell-tale signs of a dead drive... my suggesgion would be to crack open the Seagate case (i know i know, i thought it looked nice to, but would you rather have all your data or a nice-looking doorstop) and take the hard drive out, then connect it either 1) directly into your computer or 2) into another external hardrive case. As this hard drive has eSATA, it is probibly a safe bet that it is a SATA drive, so that's probibly the connection you need. Again, i have not tried this, but i will attempt it soon... what's the worst that can happen? my drive will not work inside the case, my drive will not work outside the case... same thing really... but this is the last time i buy seagate...

According to the detailed specs on that model, it came with a 60GB ATA-5 EIDI hard drive. therefore, you can use any ATA compatible (ATA-5, ATA-6 or ATA-100) EIDE/IDE drive that has jumpers enabling you to configure the drive as "Master". Western Digital Blue Scorpio and Seagate Momentus lines both have models that will fit the bill. You can find those drives at your neighborhood BestBuy or Staples pretty easily. I don't know if the A25 BIOS supports 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA), in spite of what toshiba says, If it only supports 24-bit LBA the maximum drive size is 137GB. If it supports 48-bit LBA then you can go as high as you can find drives available; usually 500GB. I suspect that it supports 48-bit LBA because various online vendors list up to 250GB drives for that model. The most important thing about the drive, though, is that it MUST be jumperable as 'master'. A cable select only drive won't work. Both the Western Digital and Seagate EIDE models have jumpers. hope this helps but if you need anything else just ask:)
