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. Any help is greatly appreciated.
