Unable to read Lacie external drive

I have an old Lacie 120Gb HD and I can not see the drive on my Vista laptop. I have not used the HD for about three years and it may have been used on a Mac system previous. The blue light does come on. The sn is 013334255. Was there some special software that I need to read this drive?

    Thanks for this! I have exactly the same problem. Tried checking in device manager - its there but listed as an "unknown device".

    In disk management the lacie drive doesn't show up.

    What other trouble shooting can i try?!

    Thanks so much in advance.

Hi!

Try right clicking Computer (in the start menu or shown on desktop as "My Computer") and clicking Manage. Then when that pops up, jump into Disk Management (left hand side). See if it shows up there. Often it can just be the fact that you need to right click the drive and click "Change drive letters". Post back if it doesn't show up there and we can try some other troubleshooting.

You could also try checking to see in Device Manager (also in that manage screen to the left bit) and then click Disk Drives and see if it shows up in there at all.

Driver for HD-PNTU3


This drive showing as not supported for Linux as you mentioned.
Usually this is due to the board inside the enclosure.
You could crack open the case and mount the drive internally which would resolve this issue.
Otherwise you are down to trying to find a driver (not made for this model) that will be recognized by your system.

Mike

Lacie disk mini full


Try Start > Run (aka Search in Win 7) type dskmgmt.msc. Look for your drive there. Right clicking will give you the options of initializing, creating disc partitions, assigning logical drives, and formatting.

I want to install windos 2003 server on dell poweredge 2600 but the server is very slow i want help


Hello,

I am not sure what you mean by "slow" so I will anwer in general terms. I would recommend 1st that you make sure the PowerEdge meets the recommended hardware specs for Windows Swerver 2003. (Memory, CPU speed, Hard drive capacity, etc.) 2nd- I would run two Xeon processors instead of one and add as much memory as you can put in your system.

I run MS Server 2003 on one of my servers and here is the configuration that I am using:
2 Xeon 2.8GHz processors
6GB ECC Memory
120GB hard drive for the server operating system (Nothing else is on this drive)
750GB hard drive for all other applications
External NAS storage for files, data, etc. (connected to my netword via Ethernet 5e)

With this setup, my server has been running very well for 6 years now. I do maintanance every week on it to keep it up to par. (Simple dusting, checking cables, etc.)

Good Luck.

My PS3 doesn't recognise the linkstation???


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. if your External drive is not detected by your Ps3 console you need to format it and select Fat32 File system. Ps3 will not recognize external harddrive using NTFS Format make sure you format the drive using Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows Vista dont have Fat32 but Exfat File format. After you format the drive to Fat32 make sure you create a folder like Music, Photo, Video and other forlders so that it will be detected by your console.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have got vga leads for my lapto to tv , they work with my 14" laptop but won`t work with my sons 7" laptop


Things to try:

1. make sure that the vga port is enabled on the laptop usually its
function key and an F key that has a (O) looking symbol above it you may need to toggle it more than once.

2. try a different screen resolution.

3. test the vga port with a standard old monitor to make sure that it works.

Unable to boot to anything external.


Save yourself some trouble. Pull a CD/DVD drive out of another computer or just buy one. They are very cheap. Connect the CD/DVD drive to the server and install the OS as usual.

If you are lucky WS2008 will already have a compatible SCSI/RAID driver. Otherwise, you will need to press F6 and install the driver from the floppy.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Dell server


1) it may just be a driver issue. look up the control panel / devices. if you see a yellow marker , then the drive is at fault . find the driver and install, then try again.

2) maybe the cdrom is dead , try change to another one.

3) if you dont have spare , plug in an external usb cdrom drive . this way , you can still do the update. many dell laptops use external usb cdrom.
