I have a Macbook Pro, early 2012, and I have installed Mint on it with great success. I only have found problems with my Seagate 1T external harddrive. When it is connected, the system goes slow. When I try to copy something from it, the system goes very slow.
The drive have a light that turns off when ejected (it happens properly in both Mac OS X and Windows 7), but when I unmount it on Mint, the icon is still there on Devices* in Nemo, and the light is still on. When I touch it, I can feel it is on.
Thank you whoever can help me.
* My Mint is in Portuguese, I suppose the name of the list in English is Devices. Is the list that have all partitions, internal and external.
