Question about LaCie BRICK (301063U) 300 GB Hard Drive
The power cable is all of a sudden giving me trouble. I was transferring some data on another computer and all of a sudden the power went out on the drive and I noticed that the green light on the transformer was flashing. Now whenever I plug it in, no matter where or on what computer, the green light flashes on the transformer and I can't turn the drive on.. or it will work for maybe 2 minutes then the light starts flashing and the power goes out on the drive. what does this mean? How could it have happened? I wasn't doing anything irregular. Normally I leave my drive plugged into the computer and the power all the time and I have never had this probolem. Only now. Any help would be greatly appreciated as there is alot of important data to me on that drive and I don't see any reason why it should have stopped working!
Power loss on a drive even if it is not transferring could be severe. Especially with Lacie gear. The bridgeboard ( which is the chip that transfers the content between the drive and the ports on the enclosure ) can fail instantainously if power varies or is cut. The major concern is if the internal drive is effected ( in the enclosure .)
Those things are cute, but not that reliable.
