Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
1. Is there a way to take it apart? I see no screws on it.
2. When it is plugged into a power source, there is this odd ticking noise, as if power is trying to reach it, but failing.
3. The power is transferring through the adapter at about 12.1 volts. It was tested by a FLUKE True RMS Multimeter. Is the adapter the problem?
These cases are normally friction fit or they have little slots for the air to get in. If you put a small flathead screwdriver into these air slots on the side sometimes there are clips in there you can push on that release the two plastic halves from eachother.
If the power source isn't putting out enough power it could be the motor trying to spin up or the reading arms trying to move on the drive. I would not try to use it anymore until you get the drive out. You don't want to do any damage to the drive.
If the adapter is putting out enough juice it could be something in the connection from the adapter to the drive. I would still get the drive out and check it to be on the safe side.
