Question about Seagate Free Agent Go Small 12 GB USB External HD ST600121GSA1E1-RK USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I can't access my Freeagent hard drive. I recently had a mac, and am trying to transfer everything onto my new PC. The PC registers that it is there (I can safely remove it, for example), but it isn't showing up on any drives. I'm at a complete loss.
Your Mac would have formatted the Seagate drive as HFS+ (journaled) format. If you have access to a Mac, copy your data off the Seagate to any Mac, then use your PC to reformat the Seagate drive in FAT32 format. Macs recognize FAT32 format, and can store data in it, but can't create the format. The Mac holding your data can store it on the Seagate in the FAT32 format, and you can then copy the files to your PC. Hope this helps.

I have exactly the same problem. My freeAgent drive is formatted using NTFS.

The base format of the drive is not one that the PC will understand. Baseically, the format is the way in which information is stored on the physical disk. There are a number of "standard" formats that you may have heard about such as NTFS or FAT32. These define what the "blocks" of information look like. Mac machines use a particular format that the PC may not understand. Some use NTFS others do not. What format is the Mac disk in? Do you know?
