Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

150 GB Seagate Free Agent external problem.

My external hard drive has been working perfectly with absolutely no incident. However, today I plugged it in to an outlet that sparked immediately as I plugged it in. Could this have shorted the AC adapter? (It has been plugged into the computer it was attached to multiple times before, and had worked not too long ago the previous day.)

Yes, this could have blown an internal thermal fuse.

My Seagate Free Agent GO is not working. My laptop does not detect my external hard drive and external hard drive does not power up. Before it used to work good.


Either the power outlet it is plugged into does not have power or the AC power adapter for the drive has failed. Try another outlet. If that doesn't work see if Radio Shack has a replacement AC adapter or contact Seagate to replace it.

I hope this helps.

I have a problem with my seagate agent go 500 gb. when plugged in to my laptop it doesn't detect it and it freezes my laptop until i unplug it. how can i get to my files in the external hard drive?


try to connect it to other computer, if it doesn't help, hdd is probably broken. If you disassemble, you will find internal hard drive, which you can try to connect to desktop PC to save your data, or look up for some data recovery company

Seagate 500gb Free Agent Ex Hard Drive - Class Action siut


DO NOT buy a Seagate freeagent drive under any condition if it comes as a gift return it or re-gift to some one you don't like. Like so many others my 500GB external drive just quit working. Has only been plugged in about 6 times and then back into a cabinet to keep safe. In 10 years between 2 workstations 3 laptops and 4 external drives. The only drives that have ever gone bad are the Seagates and newer Maxators. I still have 4 Western digital drives that still work and get used in an external case for back up. They have never failed. Seagate should be responsible for data time and mental anguish.
