What worked for me:
HDDGuru Raw Copy Tool (google it, totally free, I am not allowed to post external links yet)
Seagate Backup Plus (shucked) USB to SATA connector (connected to the target drive)
Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex USB 2.0 SATA to US...
This is great! Thanks so much!
Try factory reset. Then run it down until it dies to recalibrate the battery. It worked for me. Hope this helps.
