Your Seagate USB drive may be needing more power than the Mac's USB port can supply.

I would say get a USB powered hub and one of these cables:

This injects extra power into the port.

Also, on a Windows PC, download and run this utility to make sure there are no physical errors with the Seagate drive.  However, you do need to use that cable I suggested.  Plug both ends on the PC side in first, before plugging it in the Drive.
