Question about Computers & Internet
Please offer advice if you can.my job is seriously on the line. My Lacie D2 external hard drive power failed today while in use on a Mac powerbook G4 using pro-tools music software.The drive has always made a slight quiet ticking noise while recording to and playing back from it, it was no different from normal when the problem occurred. I foolishly had not backed up some very important recordings before it died on me. The power cable has a Green LED on constantly when its not plugged into the drive, however when i plug it back in it dims in brightness and flashes on and off so i dont think it is the power supply. The drive will not switch back on.Is this easily and cheaply repaired or can I sowehow swap the drive into another identical model.Please please has anyone any expierrince with this.
If the hard drive still spins, then the data can be saved. If there is a near by computer store, explain your problem, and they can take apart the drive and probably but the data on a new drive for you. If you want to try this yourself, you will need to take apart the outer enclosure of the Lacie drive. Then unplug the hard drive, and either put it in another similar enclosure (requires taking that one apart too) or buying a new enclosure.
