Question about LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini, 500 GB Hard Disk Drive with Gigabit Ethernet & USB 2.0 Interface, 7200 rpm... IDE Hard Drive

1 Answer

Disk will not power down. Has vanished from my computer, but router IDs it.

My Etherdisk Mini (LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini Ser# DMUM-ZMNN-VKQQ-HDQK (8/2/08 @ Microcenter) SKU 301269U Ser# 1823851E9D) will not shut down. Hipserve Agent and Desktop Mirror cannot find it, and the icon cannnot be located on the network (Mac Os 10.4.11 or Os 10.3.9, in "Finder"), However, the IP address shows up on my Belkin router setup page as 192.168.2.4.

I had problems setting up the media player for iTunes and I left it alone for days. Suddenly the setup worked and iTunes connected. However, shortly after I closed iTunes, the drive started to malfunction.

    Hi,



    I have the same problem. Suddenly (though I wasn't with anything related to the disk) the fan started to rev higher and higher. Can't acces from the network or the USB-cable. Is there any way to reset it or flash the software..?

Well according to LaCie's support when the power button is failing to work and the fan becoming inconsistent it is due to the power supply failing.

This is because the OS controls the power button and if it cannot boot fully because of a power problem, then functions of the drive are turned off, including the power button.

They are going to send me a new one.

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

Blue light come on when plugged into laptop but does not show on laptop


Hello,
this drive is mainly a Network drive. To use it with the USB, if you have a PC, you will need drivers that can be downloaded from LaCie. If you have a MAC, there are no way to use the drive with USB.
If you have a Router at home, connect the drive to it with an Ethernet cable and then use the LaCie Network Assistant to access it. It is easier.
Regards,

Lacie ED mini v2 won't start up.


I had the same problem twice, but it was the power adapters each time that were causing the problem. It wasn't the unit itself. Lacie replaced the power adapters and it worked fine.

Data recovery from a bad power unit


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.

How to recover data from lacie etherdisk when it does not keep a network conntection.


I'll have to look into it a little more but off the top of my head I would say that the nic may be going bad or some other component of the etherdisk. You can try opening it up and putting the hard drive into an enclosure and connecting it to a pc via usb to get the data, you can also then share the usb drive and use it over the network, however removing the hard drive may void any warranty you may have. If the hard drive is in fact bad then you should be able to replace it and then continue to use the device. I'll get back to you when I get more info about the device.
