When trying to restore a FreeAgent XTreme 1.5TB from a Western Digital source, the following error message occurs: "Restore Failure Could not change the partition type for /dev/disk2s1 -error- 3554"

The Seagate was in NTFS format, has been erased, and partitioned for ExFat-- I have also tried Mac OS Extended. And I use Guild Partition, as directed. Once I select the Seagate for the destination, and press erase, I receive the error 3554 message. Google searches have not supplied an answer specific to my problem, as I have tried a few fixes--which are beyond my grasp of mac functions.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
