Question about LaCie Big Disk Extreme with Triple Interface - hard drive - 1 TB
All systems have been operating smoothly for the last 2 years. then this morning 1 of my hard drives began having trouble. i have 7 d2 bigger disk extreme terabyte drives and 2 500 gig drives daisy chained together. when i fired up the computer this morning they all turned on and mounted fine excpet for 1 of the drives. it turned on and then went through its normal routine but at a certain point the blue light on the front which usually remains solidly lit began to flicker and the drive started making strange noises. i tried to plug it into other drives and also unmounted the other drives and tried to plug it into the computer by itself. the problem continued. i also tried to use both 400 and 800 cables to see if that would make a difference as well as trying power supplies for one of the other drives. any ideas what is going on? thanks. I have the same issue. I had three LaCie drives daisy-chained together. 2 are 1TB big disk exterme, one was a 250GB LaCie drive. One of the 1 TB drives is only a month old and is somewhat erratic for the past week. Last night it started making horrible noises and now won't mount at all, even when plugged directly to my macbook, my G4 or an XP machine. (I just tried it with every option!). LaCie support is closed until Monday and there is no trouble-shooting section in the manual. The light is flashing rapidly on the drive but the cliking has finally stopped.
I had the same problem and surprisingly, after many attempts to get the drive to mount with different connections, etc., the problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.
