The drive is malfunctioning or was not installed correctly. Could be a loose SATA connector or a damaged ribbon cable. Otherwise RMA.

It seems that it is related with bootcamp partition. I have deleted the partition and I haven't experienced any more flush messages.

I have news on my problem
- The problem didn't dissapear after removing bootcamp partition, although it certainly improved.
- I contacted Seagate and the acknoledge it is an incompatibility between the Momentus XT and the Mac
I would like to elaborate on the former, as the resolution offered by Seagate sounds to me like a joke (a bad one). On the first response they suggested I returned my 750GB Momentus XT and downgraded to a 500GB Momentus XT, which is older, has half as much SSD cache and has 1/3 less capacity. Then, after I refused they offer me to replace it with a standard momentus drive + an external 250GB GoFlex drive (didn't imagine they still make drives this small!). Bottom line: IF YOU HAVE A MAC DON'T BY A MOMENTUS XT 750GB drive

Confirmed: it is an incompatibility problem.
I reinstalled MacOS on my previous drive and no problems at all (yes, the drive is slower, but no errors)
Today I received a replacement unit of the 750GB momentus XT drive, installed MacOS and it is already malfunctioning, this is, console is showing the **** "jnl: unknown-dev: flushing fs disk buffer returned 0x5" error message!
It is very dissapointing to see a flagship product of a leading manufacturer no working, when the very same manufacturer explicitely advertises compatibility with Mac in the website.
