The interface has gone out, these portable drive are horrible i have 2 go bad withing months of each other.

theres not much you can do beside taking out the drive and buying another enclosure and putting it in the drive in that enclosure.

so replacing the enclosure is the only option, since the device is out of warranty. just pry open the enclosure and remove the HD, and then buy another enclosure, add the HD to it. the problem is solved.

Seagate free agent pro 500 gig external hard drive NOT RECOGNIZED


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.

If it hooks up by USB it really isn't designed to boot up. If it is hooked by an external eSATA plug, and your set up will allow you to choose that as a boot up device it can be done. But life would be a lot easier just making a simple boot up disk on a DVD or CD.

Memory loss


It seems to me that when the drive was partitioned, the whole thing was not partitioned. If using Windows XP you can go under the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management and then Disk Management. You should be able to see the drive and if any unpartitioned space is available.
