Anyone else having issues with Seagate GoFlex external drives when paired up with Macs? I recently picked up a 1TB (USB3 but backward compatible to USB2) unit so I could consolidate my photo archives. After initially working fine and formatting as HFS+ with no problem and starting to copy files from other drives, it started acting up, randomly disconnecting, hanging and not allowing access to files and then refusing to eject.
I ultimately tried to start over and repartition and format on the mac and it kept throwing up posix errors so I tried on a windows box which worked ok. Plugged it back into the mac and trouble started again and now it won't format on either machine. I'll probably take it back and replace with a Western Digital drive which have generally given me less trouble over the years.
