Posted Oct 13, 2006 - It's not the drives that fail, it's the power supplies... They fry after about 3 months-1.5 years. LaCie sells replacements for about $16-$20, dpeneding on the model. We have over 20 of these drives, and here's how you know: the drive spins up, then down - it tries to mount, data transfer will freeze, etc. Just put another power supply on it, and 9 times out of 10, it's fine. Of course, any drive can fry on you, but these have proven to be extremely reliable under some of the hardest use imaginable.

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.

I have a lacie big disk extreme + 2.0 TB. I am using Win XP Home. Recently, I have been having problems getting the drive to boot. According to windows, I have about 850 GB of drive space left, so I don't...


> is this a problem with ... my PC?

Try connecting the drive to a different PC.
If you have the same (intermittent?) problem, then it is NOT your PC which is at fault.

I suspect that your unit is about to _permanently_ fail.
Make a backup copy of all your files, before it does.

Then, exercise LaCie's warranty to get it replaced.

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.

Lacie 1000gb external drive


I own a Lacie product that does the same thing. It uses firewire but it was clicking a few times and then would not display as a drive. I moved to another computer (with a different firewire card) and it worked. I decided that the firewire card was the issue at the time, but the card still read other devices like digital video camera. I know you are using the USB 2.0 cable. Can you try your drive on a different computer? That would narrow the possible solutions down.
