Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
I just purchased a Seagate 500GB XHD. When I try to drag and drop to it, It says "FreeAgent Drive cannot be Modified". I am running Mac OSX 10.4.9. What can I do to fix this problem? Thanks, john
The problem with the compatibility between your external drive and your mac is that freeagent drives are formatted in NTFS and the Mac uses FAT32. Mac's can read from NTFS drives but cannot write to them. I'm afraid that the only solution is to re-format the drive in FAT32 format if you want to be able to write to it.
