It Seems to me like when you unpluged it without properly ejecting it, that it partly corrupted the part of the ext. hard drive that is recignised by the pc to then recignise it and make it ready for you to use.

If it uses a power adpter to power it plug that in first, then plug it into you computer, and see if that works.
I hope I helped.

    if my last soultion didnt work then, if all else fails... you could get the hard drive out of the external casing and put it in your pc. im sure someone wouldn't mind helping you thru the process

I have an old LaCie d2 160GB Hard Drive Extreme with Triple Interface (circa 2005)... I have lost my power cord and I can't seem to be able to find one online to purchase...Does anyone know where I can...


Hello,
your drive can be used with any D2 or Big Disk power supply as well as some LaCie Porsche power supplies (you need to make sure the connector is the same).
Searching for LaCie Power supply on eBay will give you a few hits that match your needs.

I have an old La Cie 160gb (maybe 5 years old?) - do you know the specs? rpm, for instance? I need something with 7200. This old one must be 5400, right?


Lacie drives have a 5400 RPM on there 160GB line nothing really changed until 500 GB to 1tB at 7200 RPM.

so the answer is 5400 RPM

Hope this helps please do rate and leave feedback.

I was copying a large amount of data - 65GB from the drive to a network drive and the USB cable was disconnected. After reconnecting some of the files sre on the network drive (~ 1/3) some are on the Lacie...


Your copy process was interrupted so you'll need to perform the entire operation again to ensure you have all of your data and to also make sure none of it is corrupted.

I think I fried my LACIE 500gb drive


Sadly if you fried the drive with that PSU cord it would be pretty hard for a home repair. If you know its definatly dead, I would just remove the drive from the external unit and try to connect it internally to a computer. If the adaptor is different you could buy a cheapy online somewhere.
