    i have a 1tb seagate goflex hdd too, and it also only goes to a black screen for me. i have it formatted perfectly correct, and nothing works, I think that as of now its just an incompatible drive, which totally sucks.

    Make sure it's FAT32 with 32kb clusters or smaller. Many people forget that.

    I had this problem, and it turns out it was because the partition table was GPT and not MBR. I don't know how to check that in Windows, but Google will be your friend, look up how to convert GPT into MBR. I use Linux so the way I used won't work if you use Windows, but after changing it, now it works just fine!

    EDIT: Oh here's a guide: http://www.sevenforu...k-mbr-disk.html
