    Hi alexis andrews, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Specifically, is the disk 1TB or 2TB? It says 2000 GB at the top of your question. I need to check for sure, but I think you need at least Snow Leopard (10.6.8) to fully access a 2TB or larger disk

Don't know what operating system your using but in Windows 7 and up it's easy to partition any drive even while windows is running.
Go to --> Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Computer Management\Disk Management and right click - set the size.
You can change it any time as long as whats in it isn't bigger than the size you want to make it. I have a 1 TB in this computer and that's how I did it after discovering that my old drive tools didn't work on this.
For any info on this procedure (or darn near anything you can think off) you can always go to youtube for step by step instructions.
Just watch a few first because some people are better teachers than others.

My iMac does not recognize the Lacie 1tb big disk extreme external hard drive. No icon appears.


Hello,
the first step will be to verify your power supply. When it is plugged to the wall power outlet, it should be silent (no hissing or high pitch noise) and the green light should be on on the power supply.. If it is not the case, replacing it might solve your problems.
Second step is to verify if it is an interface problem. Try using a different port on the drive.
If no success, start Disk Utility and look to the left if you have any mention of a drive of 1TB. If you do, the partition of your drive might be corrupted. You can try running First Aid from Disk utility if its available, else you will need to try a partition repair software or a Data recovery program.
There are a few available that you can get a free copy to see if the data is available before you buy.
Regards,

Help is it possibol to upgrade lacie big disk extreme 500gb to 1tb or 2tb. thanks. FC


Maybe. If the current disk-drive has an IDE interface, then your 500GB disk-drive already is the largest IDE disk-drive ever produced. Or, if the current disk-drive has a SATA interface, then the sky (or the thickness of your wallet) is the limit.

Hi, blinking light may indicate activity to or from hard disk and computer, maybe the disk partition was damaged or lost due to incorrect ejection or a virus, you could use a free partition recovery software to try to fix it, for example EaseUs.

If you boot the computer from a windows CD/DVD in he first stages of installation it will look for all partitions on your hard disks. When it finds your lacie highlight the partition and use the option to delete partition. Repeat this for any other partitions you wish to remove. Now you can use the format option and install windows as normal. Cheers from Scott please dont forget to vote
