Super Easy Fix... I couldnt get Disc Utilty to reformat...
I had to format it for Time Machine first and then use Disc Utility to reformat to Mac OS (extended journaled)
Here's the steps:
-Plug in drive...
-Unplug your current Time Machine Hard Drive (If you use Time Machine)
-Open System Prefs. and go to Time Machine
-Click on the "Change Disk" option
-Select your Seagate drive
-It will say that a reformat is required and tell you that all the data on the drive will be erased. Say OK
-When it starts backing up Time Machine click the X next to the progress bar to stop it. It has already formated the disc for Time Machine by that point.
-Then open the Disc Utility and select the Segate Disk (just formated for Time Machine) and go to the erase tab
-Choose the Mac OS (Extended Journaled) and name your disc
-Click erase... It will format the disc with no problems...
