You remove the foot/stand unit, then the silver cover with the circular rubber ring can be carefully pried off. If you do this, you'll void the warranty, so if you want to do this because your unit is dead, then you should return it for a warranty repair. If you're doing this to put a larger capacity drive in the box, be aware that larger or faster hard drives might generate more heat which could adversely affect the new drive's ability to operate properly.

I have a Seagate 3.5 inch pushbutton backup external hard drive, M# ST3400601CB-RK that states that it needs to be formatted. I would like to remove the hard drive and put it as a slave on another PC. ...

Attaching it to another PC will just move the problem to the other PC. USB drives frequently have the problem you are seeing.

Please i need the power adapter rating for seagate

Have you got the original power adapter?
If so the voltage details are printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter.
If the external USB Seagate hard drive houses a 31/2" drive then it requires an power adapter that provides +12 volts and +5 volts both supplying approx 2000mA of current.
If the Seagate uses a 21/2" (laptop) hard drive then it only requires +5 volts power adapter.
The only problem is the power connector to the external drive, make sure it suits the external hard drive unit and the power pins are correctly wired for the Seagate. If the polarity of the plug is incorrect lt wired (ie reverse polarity) then it could damage the USB hard drive and adapter case.

The USB port on my seagate 500GB external drive has broken off, and is somewhere inside the case.

You should be able to pop open the enclosure to retrieve the hard drive. You may need to take out a few screws.

Once you've done that, you can purchase another external USB enclosure to replace the broken one.

Power supply for Seagate 400GB

Ebay or seagate.com may be a solution.
I've used those Seagate portables and 2 have caused problems.
Or disassemble the unit, remove the drive and buy a portable case or USB adapter.
