My Seagate Freeagent external hard drive broke the other day. I accidentally pulled on the chord with my leg and it fell on my desk. It then started beeping and was no longer recognizable by my laptop. I tried using different power supplies and USB cables, but nothing worked. Finally I removed the hard drive from the case (it wasn't under warranty) and it still didn't work, but it doesn't beep now, instead a white light is glowing.
I'm trying to get a different hard drive inclosure, but I really know nothing about hardware. I measured it and it's 5.5". Are there even inclosures made for that size? I called up multiple Best Buy's and everyone seemed confused when I told them the size, saying they only sold 'standard sizes'. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?
Well it's still connected to the SATA board, and the exact model is Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1.5 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive ST315005FDA2E1-RK.
