i also have a usb 500 free agent go i can't get my computer to see it. the computer does not make the sound that it has been connected. i hear the hard drive power up and then it sounds like it shuts down after about a min. i have changed computers and cords.

Does your drive also use a power adapter? If so, try a replacement one that uses 12V/2A. These can be purchased locally at electronics retailers, or from online vendors.
Have you tried moving the drive to another port or computer?
