Question about LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini, 500 GB Hard Disk Drive with Gigabit Ethernet & USB 2.0 Interface, 7200 rpm... IDE Hard Drive
A few months ago my lacie etherdisk's power unit died. when you press the power button, it comes on for a few seconds and then shuts off. now, the hd is still intact as far as i can tell and i placed it in another maxtor external inclosure. my problem is, i need to recover my data from the disk. I have yet to find a way to do this because of the filesys lacie uses when it formats the drive.
i definately do not want to loose the some 5gb of data on the drive. how do i recover it off the hd without buying a whole new etherdisk and swapping drives?
Thanks for the help but it isnt a PC

Your data on the HD is probably OK, If the PC powers up and then shuts off it usually is a heat problem. If it shuts down quickly it may be a sensor on the motherboard that detects heat and may be bad and the motherboard will need to be replaced.
If it runs for a minute or two then shuts down there is heat somewhere causing problems with the processor and the motherboard is protecting the system. Check the fans inside the PC, specifically the small one on top of the processor, then the case fans. Also check the power supply fan and see if it is working, if not the heat may be cutting the power supply's power to the PC causing the shutdown.
