Mac OS X 10.7.4 pretty much brand new MacBook Pro
Initial install worked. Copied a bunch of files to the drive. The a few days later drive was not recognized. Searched this forum and anywhere else I could think of. Finally was able to download an install "Paragon NTFS Install.dmg" from the Seagate site. Ran that without sucess. Then I ran it to Un-Install and the drive was back visible in Finder but couldn't write to it. Files from the original day when it worked were there. Once I could see the drive in Finder I reinstalled from the .dmg that is on it and after the reboot the drive just is not recognized. Lights do come on but then go out after about 5 min.
I did recently update from 10.7.3 to 10.7.4 but I can't remember if that was done inbetween when it worked and when it didn't but figured I would mention it.
Bottom line is that if I install the NTFS software, after reboot the drive is not visible. Uninstall it and it's back but can't write files to it.

When I run disk utilities I can see the drive. There are two listings one for the drive "1.5 TB Seagate FreeAgent" then a sub folder (that's what it looks like) under it called "FreeAgent GoFlex Drive". The first one appears to be mounted but when I try to mount the second one I get a message that it can't be mounted. I run the verify and all seem well. Still can't mount it. Tried to insert a screen shot but also attached a zip file with the screen shot.

Did you find a solution for this? I am facing the exact same problem. My Mac is 10.7.4 and paragon seagate driver at 9.5.2.
Any help will be appreciated. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Uninstall the driver from your system, the drive should reappear as a read only drive...
then download the version available from the seagate website and try the install again...that usually corrects the issue from what I've seen...can't guarantee 100% but it should be a step in the right direction.
