Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
I purchased two 500GB LaCie Big Disk U2&F4&F8 EXTR 7200RPM 16MBUS external drives in November, 2006. I have connected them via Firewire 800 (daisy chain) to my PowerMac G5 tower running OSX 10.3.9. In February, 2007, one of them became defective and LaCie replaced it. I use them for external storage, with one mirroring the other. They power up when I start the computer and appear on the desktop. Recently, they both have had difficulty appearing on the desktop. Sometimes one or both will appear, and sometimes only one and sometimes neither appears. One drive seems to take longer than the other to spin up until the light stops flashing and that one seems the worst at appearing. I have tried checking all the connections, changing all the cables around, running Apple's Disk Utility as well as Disk Warrior, but nothing seems to make a difference. If I keep restarting one or both of them, eventually they will appear. The data on the drives is intact. Can you help me?

Please explain what you mean? When you plug in the drive it recognizes the drive but the size is showing to be extremely small?
Please let me know so I can help further.
