I plugged in the wrong power cord to my p/n 9nk2ag-500. Is there a way to fix? or self extract files? I keep hearing about a SATA gadget that can convert any externat HD to a USB powered, will this bypass my issue? thx

If you've blown the DC/DC converter in the unit, the easiest way to get to the files is open up the unit and remove the hard disk inside and mount it into a PC - it's just a standard drive!

Yes if the hard drive is not damage
you can use a external sata case to read your hard drive.
remove the casing off the seagate freeagent to get to the hard drive.
you need to get a 3.5" external sata case.
you can get one from newegg.com or at your local fry's
this is what i have
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153066&cm_re=thermaltake_sata-_-17-153-066-_-Product
which supports both 3.5" and 2.5" sata hard drives.

If you are suppose to send it to the manufacturer to get it fixed, opening it will generally void the warrenty.
If the hard drive enclosure is bad you can buy a new enclosure for around $6-$15 online. Buy the right enclosure either a 2.5" or 3.5" just measure the shorter side and it shoukd be close inside to the drive. Open the old case slide the drive out and into the new enclosure and your done
Alternately if you want to just back it up and try and sendd it in to get fixed. --Open the enclosure and slide the drive out. (This only works with a desktop) for hooking it up to a laptop use will need a sata to usb adapter. Remove the side panel on a fairly new computer 3-4 years old or newer (you will need a extra sata data cable) plug into the drive into an open sata port in the desktop and connect the power. Turn on the desktop and it should discover the new drive.

How do i use SATA to recover my data from my WD 500 gb mybook? you see my power source is working at all.


You dismantle the case and extract the hard disk. Then you take that disk and you put it in a desktop pc (you will need a SATA dat cable, a SATA power cable and 4 small screws tu secure the disk inside. Once it's installed just start the pc and open My Computer - the disk will be there, copy from it whatever you want.

500 Gb sata hdd not detected on k8mm-v motherboard


Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.

Fried HD?


Yep, it's probably fried, a little too much juice went in.
While the drive itself might be ok, the external casing is another story.

Try opening the case and removing the HD and plugging that in on your PC directly as a slave drive.

Plug in 220 v power line, it burns and smokes. Can data be saved?


Is the power supply internal or external? If external, then just find a similiar or identical unit. If internal, then you could try removing the hard drive and installing it temporarily in a desktop system. Obviously, interfaces must match (SATA, IDE). You could then see if it is accessible, and get any files.
