I recently purchased a 1TB Seagate Freeagent and not soon after I transferred several hundred gigs to it the top heavy case fell over, snapping the usb connection off of the board. I removed the SATA HD from the case and installed it into a Rosewell 3.5" HD enclosure with ease.
When I plugged it into my computer the icon on the bottom of my vista toolbar which is the seagate "device manager" flashed that 'no drive is connected.' I didn't get the typical usb with a green check icon where you can safely disable hardware until the unit had been plugged in for about 10 minutes. I thought I was home free, but 'My Computer' doesn't have the drive listed.
The device manager shows the drive as ST310003 40AS USB device. I attempted to update the driver, but it said the necessary driver was already installed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
