SOURCE: LaCie 500 GB hard Drive - does not register on my desktop

if it is a USB (or you have low disc space), it does take longer to show up on desktop and patience is required... on my iBook it takes over a minute for my Brick to show up... Whether it is USB or firewire, do try another cord (I had similar problem with my lacie firewire external... I used a different firewire cord and all was fine. If you have tried these already, I hope you find the answer... good luck

SOURCE: Lacie drive won't mount

Ive solved the Whole Lacie wont mount problem.... Thanks to Lacie support center, Best Buy, The internet and several Tech shops I took my crashed lacie d2 quadra 500 GB hard drive to for help when it crashed. They didn;t help and none of the stuff I bought helped either. Here is the solution: Take any of your crashed lacie Hard drives (That are clicking and making a noise to a Windows OS) FOOTNOTE: NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS, YOUR LACIE HAS NOT CRASHED AND DOES NOT NEED DATA RECOVERY$$$$$$$$ Take it to a Windows (XP worked on mine) install your lacie one button disk, after its installed properly, Run the lacie one button recovery by clicking the blinking and clicking switch on the hard drive the program will come up and show the Lacie Hard drive. Go to windows control panel and run add hardware program and search once. (if it hasnt mounted it will not find it) just let the search go through once and after it says can-not find hardware leave it open. Go to My Computer and open it, keep the window open that shows all of your drives. Wait about 4-8 hours depending on what you have going on (go to the movies or go to sleep) and come back and your lacie drive will be mounted. (THIS IS NOT THE LAST STEP- DONT GET HAPPY YET) This is whats going to burn your attitude to a new level. The Lacie Hard drive is SUPER un responsive. I advise opening just the main window and taking a look at all the folders and files you have on them. ( i solved mine by simply erasing the Video files. Final cut pro cache folders etc.) if you use your hard drive for things like editing video and audio then more than likely your drive is slightly corrupted (don't get angry) this does not mean its trashed, it means that there is a problem with file structure and a single or several files confused the hard drive. Once again your lacie is not trash. I used mine for video editing in Final cut Pro, and Audio in Pro Tools, among other things like saving photos and software, etc... Just take the time to simply delete what you know you dont need.. or even better, format the entire drive and it will be like new. Another step you can take in mounting your Lacie is to download Mac Drive 7, install it on a PC- not MAC, this process WILL NOT work on a MAC (none of these steps will work on a mac- Trust me, not matter what these nerds say, dont believe that it will- its going to cost you.) Install the Mac Drive 7 on a pc, run the Error Check and repair function and it will take about an hour depending on what you have on your drive and how many errors are found. and It will fix the drive. As stated previously - these steps will ONLY MOUNT YOUR DRIVE. Access to the files and folders on your drive will be very unresponsive. Basically if you plan on copying a movie to your desktop forget about it. 30Mb would take about 2 hours. 6Kb took close to 4 mins to copy from the lacie. You wont be able to back it up so forget about that too. Just follow the begining steps and find out what has done this to your Lacie (you know what it is!). As stated previously- I used my LACIE D2 qudra 500 GB Hard drive (that is only 6 months used) for average things like downloading, uploading, saving, etc... the same things you do, Plus I ran Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Logic Pro, and a S**T load of other programs on this drive and what confused or "Corrupted" my lacie and made it BLINK, CLICK, and make STRANGE

SOURCE: power cord buzzes and MACPro does not recognize it

This is a fault in the power supply itself, I have just repaired one of these power supplies successfully.
The fault is caused by the failure of the filter capacitors on the 12V supply rail, and if the power supply is left connected to the mains supply (In our case 240V 50Hz) without the drive connected as a load, the unloaded output voltage will exceed the voltage rating of the capacitors, causing their failure. The failed capacitors had very obvious bulges at the top, and one was beginning to leak onto the PCB.

The filter capacitors on the 12V supply rail are rated at 16V, and the cpacitors on the 5V rail are rated at 10V, and when operated without a load, the 12V rail rises to approximately 19V, and the 5V rail rises to approximately 8V. All output filter capacitors are 1000uF, and 105deg C temperature rated.

I repaired my power supply by replacing all of the filter capacitors on the DC low voltage output rails with 1000uF 25V capacitors. Be careful to only fit the 105 deg C rated caps, as they operate at elevated temperatures in an enclosed environment with no ventillation to cool the power supply.
To ensure that the repair was reliable, I also replaced the filter capacitor on the 5V rail with the same 1000uF 25V, even though that capacitor showed no immediate signs of failure.

When reassembling the power supply, care must be taken to ensure that parts like the ferrite cored transformer are thermally bonded to the aluminium heatsink with a smear of heatsink compound.
When the power supply was first powered up following repair, everything was normal, the green power LED came on as usual, the supply outputs both came up OK, and the unit was not making any buzzing sounds, completely silent. The HDD now operated as normal when once again powered from this power supply.

This was the fix for my particular LaCie power supply model ACU057A-0512, and the supply once again works normally.

SOURCE: Hi I have a Lacie harddrive.

Check to see if your laptop has USB2 capability. It maybe that you are trying to hook a USB2 drive onto a usb 1 port. Also many postings over the internet indicate a lot of problems with Lacies. Try hooking up the drive to the usb port. Power down the laptop and then power it back on.

How Do I exactly make a 500gb sata hdd work with this p4m266a ndmx motherboard? It doesn't appear to have a sata port and using the sata compatible cable did not help. Thanks


Hello,

if your motherboard does not have SATA, purchase a SATA - PCI card, they cost something to the direction of 10 to 20 $ and give you 2 to 4 or more SATA ports.

Sounds as though the interface card, between the hard drive and connector panel at the rear has packed up. If it is out of warranty it is worth opening and connecting to a separate cable. You will most likely be lucky.

Deference Lacie d2 Quadra1TB/Lacie big disk ?


It's all about the interfaces.
The Quadra has four interfaces: • eSATA • FW 400 • FW 800 • USB 2.0
The triple has all but the eSATA interface listed above.
For doing video work you want a big drive with a fast interface. If you have eSATA available then that's the fastest. If you don't then you're just as well off to go with the triple interface. The FW 800 would be the next fastest, then the USB 2.0, then the FW 400.
Because of the way that data is transferred I believe that when doing video work you would be best served by the FW 400 instead of the USB 2.0 even though the USB is faster I don't believe it is a full duplex communication so the FW 400 is actually better for video.

Firelite HD 160GB won't mount on PC


Try this site: http://sewelldirect.com/USBManualShareSwitch2To1.asp. Although you must purchase this "splitter", you can use the Hard drive on two different computers. CAREFUL! Make sure that only ONE computer is reading or writing to the same file at a time! If you have a crossover, the hard drive could crash!

Can't accept Quadra 500 on my owerMac G5 Quad


Scrap LAcie!! Sounds like in this case, it may have been jostled around during shipping. None the less, Lacie drives are nothing more than bricks waiting to fail. Go Western Digital, but if oyu can, zip straight for Seagates!!!! Professional grade!! ALways check the cables, the ones that come with them are bottom bin cables, made by little singapore children with no fingers..... Invest in a good cables...a drive is only as good as the weakest datalink.

Cash on the warranty!!!

Keep me posted.
