Your Device Manager screenshot in the first post shows the drive as "Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex USB device" which is a standard 2.5" drive in a box with an adapter cable.

Have you taken it out of its enclosure and connected it internally? I really do not understand what you are saying in the quoted post.

There is definitely something amiss here. How can your old laptop internal drive show as ""Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex USB device" ? !!!!!!!! I guess you are using the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex adapter cable to connect your old laptop hdd. That is wrong. That adapter cable should only be used with Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external HDD in its own enclosure/box/case ( by whichever name you call it.)..

OK, you tried to initialize it and it said "can't because of I/O error". And you ran Seatools and it failed. Sorry, your HDD is dead. You can't bring a dead man alive. Can you?

And why was it removed from your old laptop?- which fact you revealed only later on. May be because it was dead. Say Good bye to that HDD and go to sleep. I am also going to.:)
