Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
*FIXED* remove the plastic case, remove the screw holding the visible board in place, remove the 4 side screws holding the drive into the metal housing. Pull the drive and board from the housing. The green board pulls out of the main drive - remove it carefully. You're left with a drive, in the slot plug in a red sata fire wire and insert into the sata port of a desktop computer. Attach the power to the second slot. Most desktops have spare power slots inside, so look for the the one that accepts the hard drive, not the pin type. That's it, power up the desktop and the drive will appear along with your computer's hard drive, giving you access to the data. It's not a perfect fix, your external is now an internal, but you'll be able to get all the data from the drive.

I believe you are looking for this: USB Mini-B (5-pin)
you are looking for the "socket"
Here is a list of products to choose from:
Please note; This will be extremely hard. most of those products have no pictures and you are not sure exactly what you are getting, luckily they are pretty cheap so i would recommend getting a couple that sound right.
Good luck, be careful.
Hope this Helps.
