For the MAC to see a PC formatted hard drive, format the hard drive using the PC but format the hard drive in FAT32 not NTFS.
You will then able to transfer files between the PC and the MAC.
The MAC will copy file to the hard drive in PC file format.

Seagate free agent pro 500 gig external hard drive NOT RECOGNIZED


You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

I plugged my seagate into my mac OS and backed it up first, then went to my pc running windows xp and tried to locate the seagate drive and couldn't. Can I only use the Seagate on one machine or another?


Hi,

If you are planning to use the Seagate Hard Drive on a PC and MAC better format it on your MAC Computer thru disc Utility and choose MS-DOS. This should solve the problem.

Mac has the ability to recognize a FAT, NTFS and MAC File System for the hard drive but the PC Computer cannot recognize MAC File System.

Check on your mac the File system of your hard drive.
MAC OS Extended
MAC OS Extended (Journaled)

If this is the file system then you now know that it will not be read by PC.

Also formating it with the use of PC will only result in an NTFS File System, and it can be read by Mac but it is only in a Read Only mode. You cannot copy paste or even erase on the drive having an NTFS on a MAC.

Im trying to copy from mac to pc using seagate removable hard drive and its not working? When i plug the Seagate into my PC nothing happens


The hard drive volume format is only for MAC. Check the volume format if it is MAC OS Extended or MAC OS Extended (Journaled). If it is, then change it to MS DOS to make it readable and writable to a PC and MAC OS

My Freeagent external hard drive doesn't show up on My Computer


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.

So go to gparted.com and download the program. If you need more help, let me know.
