After adding my Go Flex Pro to my Mac the computer froze up and won't allow me to do anything. I can't get on anything. Was wondering what to do?????


Dear Vic, didyou try to reboot the Mac? Disconnect the drive and reboot. If that works tryto plug the drive again. If the Mac doesn't freeze try these next steps: There's a 3step solution for your problem: 1. Download this software from Seagate:http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=goflex-mac-install-software&vgnextoid=77002a... 2. If this software cannot create alink or communicate with the device, turn off your Mac and if you have anavailable pc try with it. If the drive works at the PC, Then is a compatibilty issue
3. Seagate report some compatibility problemswith this drive. If it is under warranty, ask for reimburse and choose anexternal HDD that has firewire 400, if your Mac is a recent model (2010-2011)you can buy an external drive with 800 firewire. If have doubt about the firewire option, lookfor about this Mac button and then press more info button, there you will findthat information.

If the Seagate has been re-formatted, then you will have to go through the re-install of the drive to your MAC, the drive should have come with it's own formatting tools and drivers. These external drives usually respond better with a small program that installs a set of driver tools. If you do not have the original freeagent disc, go to the Seagate support page, look up the model of the drive and download the program and drivers for that model and version.

Need a power cable


A user on the Seagate forums indicates that his uses a 12V 2A DC power supply. I would suggest, however, that you remove the hard drive from that enclosure and place the drive either inside your PC or inside another enclosure.

If all else fails, contact Seagate: 1-800-SEAGATE

Let me know if this helps!
