After eight hours of trying to fix, I gave up, went to the Apple Store and replaced the Seagate with this 1TB G-Drive mini.

    The G-Drive is a very nice drive, as I easily and quickly patitioned for both a SuperDuper Bootable Backup and Time Machine. I think I'll stick with this brand and Firewire.

    I have been using the G-Drive Mini for several months on two different Macs, carrying it in a backpack to and from weekly classes I have been using the G-Drive Mini for several months on two different Macs, carrying it in a backpack to and from weekly classes in the Apple Store, to Starbucks, on vacation and to my office. I bought it to use as my drive to store my Final Cut Pro X event, project and output files. At home I connect it to my Mac Mini, while else where to my MBP 13". This drive, connected via FireWire 800, has worked like a charm.

Nicely designed aluminum case and no need for a power supply, it gets power through the Firewire cable. Also comes with a nice carry case and all the cable configurations you could possibly need.

    Too soon to tell how long it lasts but all is well so far.

What I found out is that the G-Drive has a noisy fan, the drive generates an excessive amount of heat, and now has finally FAILED. Thank goodness I had a backup of my data, because the G-Drive obviously cannot be trusted. My advice: Do NOT buy this drive.

It worked right away and is already formatted for Mac, popped up on my desktop and I was ready to go. Very fast, very sleek little machine. I have not encountered any problems mentioned with this device, but I have not had it very long. I am more than satisfied with my purchase.
