this is odd because this looks like a duplicate of the same question that was answered a few days ago. from what the last one said a user answered that you might be able to format it FAT32 and be able to use it. I looked up the Seagate FreeAgent 500GB drives. On Seagate’s website it specifically states that it only supports Windows Vista, XP Home or Professional Edition, or Windows 2000 and some MAC OS’s. It does not say that it works with ME.
