Unhappy Solved: seagate goflex external hdd not recognized
(I have a windows 7 x64) I'm trying to boot from a usb and I followed an online video to make my goflex booteable. I basically fudged up but i managed to format it back to the original NTFS format with absolutely no files on it. When I go to Windows->Computer the drive isnt there! I went to Computer->(right click) manage and went to the disk management section and the drive is there! but i can't add any files to it from there . any help? Also, when i plug in the drive, i hear the usual sound when i plug any usb in, then i can choose to safely eject my seagate goflex! but i can't open the drive to put files in it!
