Question about LaCie Design by F. A. Porsche 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Drive not recognised

I am trying to install the LaCie drive on my XP system laptop using a Belkin Firewire Notebook Adapter F5U513 IEE1334. The PCMCIA is also used by a wireless card( obviously not at the same time ) on inserting the Belkin card it seems to recognise and shows a 2nd IEE1334 device which it states to be working properly. Plugging the LaCie drive into the Belkin card it fails to recognise the drive. The drive is working properly as it has been used in another PC it just does not seem to work in conjunction with the Belkin adapter. Any thoughts appreciated.

Try re-mounting your drive after a fresh re-boot of your computer. If the drive came with the manufacture's software to allow it to communicate with your computer, then try removing this software from your system and re-installing it again. This will repair a corrupt driver or I/O program. Try using the drive with a new or different firewire cable. Other users have reported this drive working again after replacing the cable.

I have a LaCie Rugged Drive, with multiple interfaces (USB, Firewire 400/800). Firewire interface works fine. When I plug the drive in the USB port, it won't mount (MacBook Pro OS X), and a faint beeping...


the problem is that your lacie drive operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) under USB which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple mac is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac if you wish to use it via the USB connection.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-

download and install the software then restart your mac.

Unable to format


Try running a chkdsk on the device (from Instruments -> Check for Errors).

If no errors are founds, it's unlikely that a reformat might help (but you might try. If the device holds no data, you risk nothing).

It could be that the device isn't always getting enough power to go by: try plugging it into another computer, or use an externally powered firewire hub such as the Belkin F5U624eaAP.

Macintosh computer not recognizing the LaCie external hard drive


1. If you have another firewire device test this device with the same firewire cord you are currently useing for the LaCie. (if there is no reasponse form the other device then it is the cord it's self) If not then 2. Check the Leads on the back of the LaCie where the firewire plugs in if the copper looks tarnished use a ear swab dipped in Lime Away or CLR to clean it then wait for it to dry and try the cord again. 3. if these physical connections are in good connection with each other and the firewire in port on your computer and on the LaCie are good then. Run a "Permissions" verify and repair through the disk utility program on your Mac with the LaCie turned on and plugged in.
FINALLY if none of these options repair the LaCie you may have to open the LaCie up and check to make sure the soldering from the firewire to the chip set is still in tact. I hope this helps Happy Macing.

Having Problem with both LaCie hard drives being recognized on both macs


Try to connect to another computer, and see if it recognizes the drive. If Not, you can dismantle LaCie and take the disk out.

Connecto your disk to another external box (USB or Firewire) so you can have access to you data.

What system is the laptop? File differences is the ext-hard drive FAT32 or DOS? Therefore XP [NTFS] is not 'seeing' its content. On the XP machine go to start/Control Panel/Admin tools/computer management/storage/removable storage/and check the file type

LaCie FireWire drive


I would seek out the latest drivers for the card in addition to checking to see the firewire card is properly installed. I would test the cable with another or ports. The D2 has a various array and combination of Firewire ports on each model. Also, try bringing the drive to another computer, to eliminate all other variables. Always of course, properly eject external hardrives and wait for confirmation whenever disconnecting it from the computer, and allow the drive to spin down before turning it off.
