Hi,

Seagate 1TB Goflex not detected, but shown in "Safely remove hardware" icon in system tray.
I have checked on DiskManagement and EaseUS and uploaded the screenshots as given below.
The HDD is working on my iMac.
I have changed my CDROM drive letter from M: to T: to accommodate any Letter assigning issue but it seems to be not working.

Please let me know any solution.

Cheers

Never mind the CD drive letter, have you tried assigning a letter to your GoFlex?
Or "Initialize" it?

Windows cannot natively mount a Mac file system. You need something like HFS Explorer (freeware) or MacDrive (commercial). HFS Explorer gives you read access only while MacDrive allows both read and write access.

HFS Explorer :

It won't help in your current situation, but just FYI Seagate provides a Paragon driver that enables a Mac to mount an NTFS file system:
