I recently bought a Seagate Freeagent Go external hard drive (320gb, green, NON-mac version) and I'm having a bit of trouble getting it to work with my Powerbook G4 1.5ghz 1gb RAM. When I bought it, I understood that it would need to be reformatted (to FAT32 or the native Mac format) to work properly with my computer which I figured wouldn't be very difficult. Upon plugging it in to the USB port on my powerbook, it started making funny noises, and never appeared in the Finder. I then opened Disk Utility, and it didn't appear there either. The only way I can get the drive to appear at all in OS X is to connect it to my Airport Basestation, which allows me access to the drive over the network, but as far as I can tell does not allow me to reformat the drive. I then tried plugging the drive in to a Windows XP based laptop, and it appeared no problem, in NSTF format. I got a program called fat32format and ran it per the instructions provided, and it seemed to work, but when I plug the drive in to my Powerbook, I still get the same weird noises and 0 functionality. Does anyone have any suggestions?
