    I have a Seagate Free Agent HDD that just quit on me. First I had several errors, going to the deadly I/O error and to the point that neither of my laptops recognize the drive. I've tried almost everything to get my files back (same'ol story: all my pics and music are stored there). As last resort I'm thinking of opening the case and plug it as a slave/secondary HDD straight into my Dell Inspiron Laptop but I don't know if that can even be done.
    PS. If you can believe my bad luck this happened just a WEEK after I bought another external HDD to back up all my data.:mad:
