    I have a Seagate GoFlex 3TB with the USB3 module attached. Formatted OSX Journaled. When I plug it into my mac running 10.8 Mountain Lion I get an error message saying it cant be repaired/verified and It is only going to run in READ mode. All of the data is there, but I cant write to the drive. My attempts to repair the drive fail in Disk Utility - its under warranty but I dont know if this is just a file system error which is not actually a damaged drive r if its a defective drive. Any Ideas or Opinion on how to proceed with a claim if I need to?

    BTW - all of my data is backed up, so I am not worried about losing files.

    Is there any sort of firmware update available for the drive?

    Just an idea :)
