Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
The ''FireDog'' people at City said the Seagate FreeAgent 1TB external USB 2.0 drive I got would work with my MAC even though it said Windows Vista on the box.
They said ''USB is universal so just re-format it.''
I can't get it to mount in order to reformat it using ''Disk Utility'' on my MAC? It doesn't show up in the left hand pane showing disks?
Can someone walk me through how to do it? Is there another MAC utility I could use? My machine is an intel duo with latest OSX on it.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
BTW: Your product pane wouldn't let me enter the actual exact name of the product I have which is: Seagate FreeAgent | Desk - 1TB
Follow this guide on the seagate page
There is actually a MAC version of the drive, but I suppose you can get that to work with mac also.
Heres a 2nd page that may be helpful

You are going to find your answer at Seagate. Don't respond to any of these answers here and get a refund. The problem is the disk size not the drive interface.
