You should connect the FreeAgent drive directly to your computer. If connected to the Central Axis it should show up as a shared folder. The Axis runs its own O/S. The smaller drives you used in the past were probably formatted as FAT32. I've seen other post that say NTSF drives will be read only if connected to the USB port. (I would verify that if I had the time). If you used the Central Axis to format the 1TB drive it gets formatted as Ext3 which is not compatable when connected to a windows machine.
The freeagent software is not needed if you plan to use the drive as storage. If you are using 64bit Vista, download a new copy of the FreeAgent software.
