Lacie 1TB External USB Drive tells me to format when I plug it in

Hi, I have been using my Lacie drive for a few days now and It's been working fine. Yesterday I may have pulled the plug out without Safely Removing it, and now when I plug it into the computer again it says "You need to format the disk" when I try going into the drive. I have all my important files on there, so is there any way for me to fix this? Thanks, and please answer me as soon as you can.

I finally found a solution. I used GetDataBack, it was easy to get, I used the usual torrent sites to get it, and it recovers your files from your hard drive if you have problems with it (i.e. can't access it, etc.). I think my problem was caused by pulling out the usb cord without Safely Removing the hardware,

Lacie 1tb only showing n 30g room


Hey there,
A hard drive, especially a new one, might need to be formatted before use to show the proper amount of data available for use. Sometimes a hard drive might malfunction and not show the proper amount of free space. formatting should also solve this problem, Before you go and format your hard drive understand that by formatting it you will lose all data that is stored on it, so if you have anything important, take it off first.
here is a detailed guide to reformatting your hard drive based on your operating system

I cant see my external lacie hard drive on my mac with the Lacie Network Assistant. The hard drive is visible with the finder though. With the dashboard and with the finder I am able to move or copy files...


Hello,
for the product that you selected for your question, it is impossible for the LaCie Network Assistant to see it because it is a Local drive (USB).
The LaCie Network Assistant only detects the Network LaCie drives.
Regards,

Hello i plug my lacie 1tb external hard drive into my ps3 and it does not get regconise but when i plug it into my pc it works perfectly


ps3 is designed to take certain drive formats. I'm no sure which ones but you could test. Just back up all the files and reformat it with FAT32, FAT...and if it doesn't work just restore the files because gaming consoles were never designed to take externals used by computers.

Lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised


I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK
