Here's one case. They're not terribly scarce, but not found just everywhere, either.

Sounds like the enclosure has a problem. If this is one of those free agent go flex drives with the removable USB to Sata interface you might try getting another drive like it and borrow the interface from that drive when you need to use this one. That's something I have to do now because one of my interfaces died also.

Hello, I just bought a Seagate Free Agent Go 1


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Clicking from a hard drive means it is dead or dying. If you have critical data to recover from the drive stop using it at once and contact a data recovery service.

The only way to repair the drive is take it apart and rebuild the faulty component(s) at this point. Unless you are able to obtain schematics and parts from Seagate it will be cheaper to replace the drive.

Need a power cable


A user on the Seagate forums indicates that his uses a 12V 2A DC power supply. I would suggest, however, that you remove the hard drive from that enclosure and place the drive either inside your PC or inside another enclosure.

If all else fails, contact Seagate: 1-800-SEAGATE

Let me know if this helps!

Which USB enclosure for Seagate U6 Model ST360020A (60GB)


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Would suggest a multiple to 1 adapter that would accommodate most if not all types of connection. The price difference would be negligible and since its multiple would work on just about any IDE, SATA, 2.5 or 3.5. A good example is this model.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

An external USB drive consists of tow parts:

a hard drive (usually a standard IDE or SATA drive), and

an enclosure

The enclosure is the box containing the drive. It also includes an interface to convert the data from the IDE or SATA interface on the drive to a USB (2) signal. Some enclosures include and internal power supply. The Freeagent has the power supply externally.

Hope that's what you mean.
