Question about Seagate Free Agent Go Small 12 GB USB External HD ST600121GSA1E1-RK USB 2.0 Hard Drive

Open Question

Seagate FreeAgent Desk will not mount when MacPro boots up.

Mac pro with this Seagate FreeAgent Desk ST310005FJA105-RK 1 TB External USB/FireWire Hard Drive for Mac. when the MacPro boots up, it does not see the external HDD ... it is attached via FW 800. The only way I can get the HDD to mount is to unplug the power cord, pause, and plug it in. It then mounts. This should mount when the machine powers up. The drive lights up when the Mac starts up but will not automatically mount.
help?

SOURCE: Seagate External Hard Drive powers down after being idle.

If you load the Free Agent Software, there is a utility for setting the power saving. You can set it to a number of different times including never. The default is 15 minutes. I think this is what you are experiencing. The settings are in the Utilities tab.

SOURCE: I have just purchased a Seagate 500GB Desktop hard drive

There is software preloaded on the disk. If you have AutoPlay turned off in your system, it won't start automatically when you connect the drive. Just go to MyComputer and open the drive and you will find a setup file there to install the backup software (I think it's called Launch.exe).

SOURCE: my Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1 TB worked for several

There is about a 40% failure rate on these drives which is extremely high. The problem is a error in the onboard bios. If it is still working you can apply a update that will fix it. If it has "bricked" or locked up then you are out of luck. You can try to return it under warrenty. If you have important data on the drive then you may need the services of a data recovery company to get it off ie $$$ to do.

SOURCE: Formatting my Freeagent 1tb external hard drive for my Mac?

the problem is that your western digital operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple macs is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/NTFS-3G.shtml

download and install the software then restart your mac.

Why does my Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex, 1.5 TB, external hard drive USB 2.0 make a clicking sound and will not connect to my Satellite receiver?


Does the drive work with a computer? This is an important test to determine if the drive is bad, or if it is an interface problem. Check the satellite receiver instructions for using external USB devices. Many times, these types of devices do not have interfaces with drivers for external hard drives.

I just bought a Seagate 2 TB desktop drive for Mac and PC, it works on my PC but nothing happens on the MacBook


If the Seagate hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS then the MAC cannot read and write to this hard drive.
To exchange data between the PC and MAC then the Seagate hard drive needs to be formatted on a PC in FAT32 not NTFS.
