I have a USB mass storage device that is 1TB of data, called the FreeAgent GoFlex. I have been using it as a back-up device for my Mac laptop. I need to transfer some files from the Mac to my PC laptop, and thought that would be the easiest way.
Since I use both Mac and PC I made sure before buying the device that it would be both Mac OS and Windows compatible. I'm not sure now if that's the case. The GoFlex is not showing up as a USB device that I can open and read any files on. The device shows up under 'Devices and Printers' but when I double click on it, it brings up the 'Properties' for the device, and not the files. I have been researching what I can do to fix the problem and during that research have discovered that the device is also showing up under 'Disk Drives' in the 'Device Manager' and not under the 'Universal Serial Bus controllers' section that I think it's supossed to be under.
I have double checked that all the drives are up to date on the USB mass storage device, as well, and they are. Any suggestions on how I can view the files from the device, or is this just a communication problem between Mac and PC since I've used it on the Mac first?
Or, possibly, just a compatiblility issue with the device I bought to Windows 7?

While MSC is the original abbreviation, UMS (Universal Mass Storage) has also come into common use. Operating system support [ ] Most mainstream include support for USB mass storage devices; support on older systems is usually available through patches. Microsoft Windows [ ] Microsoft Windows has supported MSC since Windows 2000.
There is no support for USB supplied by Microsoft in Windows before. OSR2.1, an update to the operating system, featured limited support for USB. During that time no generic USB mass-storage driver was produced by Microsoft (including for ), and a device-specific driver was needed for each type of USB storage device. Third-party, freeware drivers became available for Windows 98 and Windows 98SE, and third-party drivers are also available for Windows NT 4.0.
Has support (via a generic driver) for standard USB mass-storage devices; and all later Windows versions also include support. Supports accessing most USB mass-storage devices formatted with on devices with USB Host. However, portable devices typically cannot provide enough power for hard-drive (a 2.5-inch (64 mm) hard drive typically requires the maximum 2.5 in the USB specification) without a self-powered. A Windows Mobile device cannot display its file system as a mass-storage device unless the device implementer adds that functionality. However, third-party applications add MSC emulation to most WM devices (commercial Softick CardExport and free WM5torage). Only memory cards (not internal-storage memory) can generally be exported, due to file-systems issues; see, below.
The feature of Windows worked on all removable media, allowing USB storage devices to become a portal for. Beginning with, Microsoft limited AutoRun to CD and DVD drives, updating previous Windows versions. MS-DOS [ ] Neither nor most compatible operating systems included support for USB. Third-party generic drivers, such as Duse, USBASPI and DOSUSB, are available to support USB mass-storage devices.
Supports USB mass storage as an (ASPI) interface. Mac OS [ ] 's and support USB mass storage; Mac OS 8.5.1 supported USB mass storage through an optional driver. Linux [ ] The has supported USB mass-storage devices since its 2.4 series (2001), and a to kernel 2.2.18 has been made. In Linux, more features exist in addition to the generic drivers for USB mass-storage device class devices, including quirks, bug fixes and additional functionality for devices and controllers (vendor-enabled functions such as command pass-through for ATA-USB bridges, which is useful for or temperature monitoring, controlling the spin-up and spin-down of hard disk drives, and other options). This includes a certain portion of -based devices, through support, since Android uses the Linux kernel.
