SOURCE: Seagate Free Agent Drive Cannot be Modified on Mac G5

First of all Hello John :)

The new seagate drive you got needs to be unpartitioned and its file format system needs to be deleted and changed.

NB: You will lose all your data so make sure that you copy everything useful off it before you do these steps.

1. Get hold of a windows PC and right click on my computer
2. Choose manage ... choose disk management right click on the drive and delete the partition type
3. delete again until it comes unpartitioned space
4. Then go to your mac and you should be able to format it as a regular Mac drive.
5. If the Windows PC is inaccessible. Get hold of a copy of Linux UBUNTU distro. Boot your MAC from CD choose to boot os from CD (don't worry it will install nothring on your MAC it will just use the CD but make sure you choose the right option)
6. Keep your hard drive attached so it gets detected during bootup. Once the UBUNTU OS boots choose GParted and from there do the same thing i explained above.

Hope that this was of help :)

Cheers
(please take some time to rate solution)

SOURCE: Seagate 500gb Free Agent Ex Hard Drive - Class Action siut

DO NOT buy a Seagate freeagent drive under any condition if it comes as a gift return it or re-gift to some one you don't like. Like so many others my 500GB external drive just quit working. Has only been plugged in about 6 times and then back into a cabinet to keep safe. In 10 years between 2 workstations 3 laptops and 4 external drives. The only drives that have ever gone bad are the Seagates and newer Maxators. I still have 4 Western digital drives that still work and get used in an external case for back up. They have never failed. Seagate should be responsible for data time and mental anguish.

Try to remove internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to a computer.If it still makes any of these sounds then most likely it's too late and heads are bad now. If you need to recover files you will need to send the drive into data recovery lab. There's no way you can do it at home I'm afraid.

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

Remove any usb devices from your computer other than your Free agent then reboot the computer see if it is reconized and it is useable. Then plug in your other devices one at a time make sure you see the Your device is ready to use. If your Free Agent is not reconized got to Seagate.com search for your device driver. Remember when you want to pull out any usb device make sure you remove it throught windows first. Fastest way is to go in My Computer or Computer right click on the device and choose eject. After the name changes to removable device it is safe to pull our.

Hope this helps,

Terry

For a MAC to use an external Hard drive, the hard drive has to be formatted FAT32 file system. That is the only file system MAC sees.
