Does nanyone know what drive is inside?

Hi

Does anybody know what HDD is inside the Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1TB (ST#10005FDD2E1-RK), and could the drive be removed and installed in a normal SataII port?

Thanks

Dave

  1. While I don't know the exact answer, I would hazard that its a basic 1TB sata drive from seagate. If you can get the drive out, it should just plug into your SATA ports.
    I know from experience that a Western digital drive can be used this way as there is a USB to SATA adapter that needs to be removed before plugging it into the motherboard.

    Hope that is of some help
  2. Yes it can be removed. All it is is a 1TB Seagate SATA drive, probably Barracuda. Not sure if it is 7200 or 5400. Inside the enclosure is simply a PCB with a chipset on it to convert SATA to USB.

    A few days ago I took the 2.5" Seagate out of my FreeAgent Go and put it in my Macbook and it was a very smooth transfer. I even put my old Macbook drive back in the enclosure and it works fine and went back together without a hitch.
