Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
Hi, after not being able to poer up my LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB anymore..i took off the case cover and connected the HDD to my motherboard via sata cable and sata power cable....turned on the PC and nuthin shows up. i can hear the External HDD powering up but the drive does not show up in " My Computer". Am i missing a step somewhere? or is my LaCie HDD fried ?...thanx Stan
Does it make any clicking/clunking sounds like any of these?
If yes - it's really bad and there's nothing you could by yourself..
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all then try to remove it from enclosure and connect directly to a PC.

You're not missing any step at all, because with SATA hard drive if its really working your computer should
automatically detect it and since this hard drive suddenly stop working there's a possibility that its already
fried but if you want you can try this hard drive again to a different computer and if still not detected by
second computer its already dead.........
