    check if is recognized by the computer, got to the device manager and check there.
    If you don't hear if spin that mean the it is dead, you cannot repair it yourself, you have to send it to the service center.

Try a different USB jack. If it still doesn't appear you probably have to format it for Windows.
To do this, right-click on My Computer, go to Manage, then choose Disk Management.
The disk should appear there. You'll have to format it for Windows in order to use it.

My computer has stopped recognising the driver for a 500gb Lacie Premier Multimedia Hard disk. It appears as 'Unknown device". how do i locate and replace the driver.


Most USB accessories do not get recognized well when plugged in before startin the computer. The exception seems to be mice. USB hadr drives and flash drives specially seem to have this problem. I always use the disconnect icon in the system tray to disconnect before shutdown and plug them in after windows has stabilized. I even gets worse if you use a USB hub. Some devices will not be recognized when attached to a hub.

My lacie Big disk 500GB drive will not mount


If Lacie does a kind of tickling noise that is the disk head. It means the disk is faulty.

I will post this on main thread.
