I've purchased a seagate freeagent goflex usb drive, 1TB. Model number staa1000104. When i plug it in nothing appears on my desktop although the light flashes. My mac seems to have no trouble finding it. Any ideas on how to get this drive to be useable with my ubuntu machine?

Back it up, then feel free to play with it as you like. The 2 sections you're looking for are these:
After you make changes type in
Does the drive show up in your File Manager? I have a couple of these myself and they just worked as soon as I plugged them in. It is also possible that your file manager is set NOT to open when you plug in a new device. If you install ejecter from the repositories, an "eject button" icon will appear in the indicator applet when the drive is mounted. Then you should be able to find it in the sidebar/bookmarks of your file manager. Hope that helps.
