Sharing Seagate GoFlex drive on wifi network?

I recently bought a 2 TB Seagate Goflex drive to use to backup my music and photos. I connected it to my mini, went to "Sharing," and added the GoFlex Drive as a shared folder. I got on my airbook, and I was able to get onto the GoFlex drive over my wifi network, but it was read only.

After some googling, I found that I needed to install the Paragon software so that a Mac could write to the drive. I can do that fine and dandy now from my mini. However, curiously, I can no longer access the drive at all (not even read only) from my airbook over my wifi network. I can get to all of my other shared folders - everything but the GoFlex drive.

Thoughts?? It seems as if I've taken one step forward, but then two steps back!!

QUOTE Thanks
