MacBook Pro :: Seagate FreeAgent Go Mac/PC?

Jun 12, 2010

Hi, I bought a 160 gb Seagate FreeAgent Go 160gb a while back and it's formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). It's working great but lately a lot of my friends have been wanting the files I have on my Mac and when I go to plug it into a PC it doesn't read the drive. Is there a format where I can plug it in on my Mac and add files and use them and then also plug it into a PC later and take the files off? Some of these files are pretty big.

MacBook Pro :: Seagate FreeAgent XTreme 1TB That Bad For MBPs?

Jul 27, 2009

I just bought a Seagate FreeAgent XTreme 1TB.

After I went home, I checked online and found all these horrid stories about how this HDD crashed after just a month, or two months, or even 2 weeks (there are like 10+ stories about this problem).

What bugs me more is that on the box it is actually written "Designed for Windows Vista" (which I didn't read before buying, a lesson I learned for future reference) so I'm afraid that it won't work that well on Mac OS X.
I did find out that it works on Mac and I only need to format the drive, but I think, logically, if it works as well for Macs, why did they have to put a label that indicates it was designed for Windows?

I want to know this product IS that bad.
I haven't opened the seal or the plastic at all, just in case everyone says it is that bad and I should to return it to the shop.

I'm using a 15" MBP (not the NEW MBP), Mac OS X v10.5.7

MacBook :: External Hard Drive - Seagate FreeAgent Go 250GB USB 5400 RPM

Jul 31, 2008

[URL: ...] I'm taking a Digital Media class on my study abroad trip this semester and one of the requirements for the class is that "Students will also need a portable external drive for storing files, a 120 gigabyte drive will be perfect." I'm not computer savvy whatsoever but would this be ideal for my class? We will be working on video projects and such. Also, I have a MacBook would it still work/be ideal with a MacBook?

Hardware :: Reformatting Seagate FreeAgent Go?

Jan 11, 2009

I want to get an external hard drive for my ibook g4 (mac os x 10.4.11). I was leaning toward getting a WD My Passport Essential because it's compatible with macs and pcs. However a lot of the reviews I've read have said that WD external hard drives crash within a few months and that just sounds like a lot of stress to me. The Seagate FreeAgent Go has gotten better reviews so now I am thinking of getting it. However you have to reformat it in order for it to work on a mac. Anyone know how difficult this is to do or how to do it?

Hardware :: Seagate FreeAgent Go External HD?

Dec 30, 2008

i currently have a few year old 320gb WD external HD to backup my MBP's data plus RAW camera files. i wanted to replace it with something a little bit larger and something that doesn't require external power.
i stumbled upon seagate's FA Go series a while back and am thinking about buying the 500gb version. Amazon is currently running a special where you can get a free dock along with it. i have read multiple reviews that mention the dock and some say you need to use two USB cables with the dock, others say the ports just need to be powered.
the dock would be a nice accessory to have, but my MBP only has two USB ports and one is always being used for my keyboard. can the hard drive be used with only one USB while in the dock? or can it only be used with one USB when mounted by itself?

OS X :: Seagate FreeAgent Go Will No Longer Eject?

Jan 23, 2010

I have heard of a lot of issues with Seagate desktop drives so I would never buy one, but I had never heard of problems with their laptop drives so I took a chance a while back and got a FreeAgent Go 640GB external at Fry's. I have it partitioned into 3 partitions, 2 for backups (L 10.5 and SL 10.6) and one for data. Lately it has gotten to where the SL partition will not automatically mount when I plug it into my aluminum iMac running either 10.5 or 10.6, and will only mount the SL partition when I bring up Disk Utility. When I try to eject the disk it just hangs after graying out the partitions in Finder. I have tried this with both 10.5 and 10.6, and with both keyboard ports and with rear panel ports with no difference. I am about to reformat the FreeAgent and start over again, but I thought I would ask first if anybody else has experienced anything like this.

Hardware :: Seagate Freeagent Pro Not Recognized By OS 10.4.2?

Aug 18, 2008

After reading all the helpful hints i knew that when i had an issue i would come here. The day has come.

I'm running a home studio and I have a Freeagent Pro 500G model that streams my audio and midi to my Macbook Pro. (penryn 2008) Just the other day when i fired the equipment up, my external drive wasn't recognized by OSX. I don't understand why, because it seems to be spinning up and everything. I have tons of important sessions on this drive, and can't believe it might be dead. I've gone straight to the computer via firewire, into my interface via firewire and out again, tried absolutely everything. the drive just won't come up on my desktop! I tried flashing the PRAM, and i'm at my wits end now to come up with a solution, even if it's as temporary as backing up the data on the drive! Too much money is at stake to be messing around with it right now. I can say that I'm totally buying a Glyph as soon as i get this figured out.

I am Running a 2.8Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 24" iMac running Mac OS X 10.7.3. I run time machine to backup to an external Seagate 3TB, FreeAgent GoFlex Desk, FireWire Drive. When the Mac goes into sleep mode, the Seagate drive un-mounts. When the Mac wakes up, I get an error that the drive was not properly disconnected and the drive is no longer mounted. The only way I can get the drive to remount, is to remove power from the drive for several seconds and then reconnect it.

Hardware :: Getting IMac To Recognize Seagate FreeAgent Go?

Jan 2, 2010

I have a Seagate Freeagent Go 750GB that my Mac won't recognise. I can't afford to lose the contents. The drive was recognised until recently and is still seen by Disk Utility, but won't display a desktop icon to access the contents. I've run Disk Utility many times and it won't fix the problem.

Hardware :: Seagate FreeAgent Go Portable HD For PC Work On A Mac?

Jun 5, 2010

I have this drive: [URL]

I don't have my mac yet, it's on it's way. I wanted to know if I can just use my current 'for pc' drive in my mac if I connect it up and format it? I can't tell if the difference between the pc and mac versions is just to do with how they are pre formatted and the software that comes with them, or if i can just format the pc version with my mac and use that.

Basically, I just want my music and videos on a portable drive that I can move between my mac and pc. Is there a better way?

PowerPC :: Powermac G5 - Seagate Freeagent - Can't Connect With ESata?

Sep 19, 2007

I just bought a

Seagate 750GB Freeagent External HD, w/USB, Firewire, and most importantly eSata connections. (Model # ST307504FPA1E3-RK)

I wanted to get it going immediately, and living in NYC I also bought the only PCI-X card I could find from Tekserve, a

Lacie Sata II 3Gb/s PCI-X Card 4E

I installed the card and driver on my Powermac G5 Dual 2.0, (10.4.10), and although System Profiler recognizes the card on the PCI bus, it will not recognize the drive through the Esata connection. I tried all four of the ports, and nothing. Disk utility shows nothing there.

The G5 does recognize the drive through the USB 2.0 connection.

I don't know whether this card is compatible or not, and I can't find any information on what would be online.

Does anyone know how I can get the eSata to work?

Hardware :: Seagate FreeAgent Desk For Mac - 1 TB: Good Choice?

Feb 18, 2009


Seems like pretty good deal, although only 2 reviews it seems to be very good. I heard a lot of good things about Seagate, especially their warranty.

I was leaning towards WD but I've heard a lot of reliabilities issues with their MyBook's actually.

Anyone have this drive? I would go 1.5 TB but I hear current HDD technology isn't up to snuff yet to make another more than 1 TB reliable .. though that could be false.

MacBook Pro :: Its Shutting Off The Home Wireless Network?

Mar 31, 2012

I've been reading through some of the other MBP wi-fi issues but couldn't find anyone discussing what I'm dealing with so I wanted to put this out there.   

I got a MBP earlier this week and, it seems like after powering down or shutting the MBP and reopening it, my wi-fi network at home shuts down or isn't recognized.  When this happens, I have to unplug my airport extreme and turn the internet on and off on my cable router so the wi-fi signal can be recognized on my wireless devices.  It's not just the MBP (running Lion 10.7.3) that can't find the wi-fi when this happens; my MacBook (running OSX 10.5.8), my TV with wi-fi and my wife's iPhone lose their signals also.  The airport extreme and my cable router still are showing that they're running when this happens (green light on airport). 

It only seems to happen when the MBP has been powered down or closed.  Not sure if it has something to do with the airport extreme router that's in the MBP.  It doesn't seem that anything is actually turning off the airport extreme but none of the devices can recognize the wi-fi signal after this happens.  Turning off and on the airport from either of the computers doesn't seem to do anything.  It requires a reboot to the airport.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Connect To Home Wireless Internet

Jun 24, 2012

So here is the issue.. when i first got my macbook, it connected to the wireless internet at my house perfectly and stayed connected. (I had an open wifi account) Then, we got a new router and we wanted to put a password on it so that no one could use our wireless connection without us knowing. 

Now my macbook will not connect to the wifi.. It just keeps telling me that the password is invalid. I have a TRENDnet router (TWE-632BRP) but my iphone connects to the wifi fine using the password.

Hardware :: Macbook Won't Connect To Wireless Home Network?

Jan 14, 2008

I have a Netgear wireless router that is about 4 years old and has the latest firmware installed. Until now, I have had only Windows computers connected wirelessly and it has worked fine. We just got a new Macbook. When I try to connect to our network, it finds the network name but goes nowhere once I have entered the passphrase. Not being familiar with Macbooks I'm not sure what I'm missing. I did see somewhere that older versions of Airport required either a '$' preceeding the password or that the password should be enclosed with "". None of these things helped. What am I missing?

By the way, according to the Netgear docs, this router should work with Macs.
