Question about LaCie Big Disk Extreme (300797U) 1000 GB Hard Drive
We have just moved offices so we had to disconnect hard drives and what not and reconnect in the new office. Unfortuantely, I can not view our LaCie Ethernet Big Disk on my computer (Windows XP). There is a large yellow uestion mark on the device in the device manager panal. It is telling me it was installed incorrectly, but I was able to view it in our old office perfectly fine. Although, there was a large yellow explanation point on the device in the device manager panal when we were at our old office.
I have an option to reinstall, but I don't know if that would erase everything on the hard drive. Will it?? Any info on this would be great!
Wait.. If you have this hard drive it should be connected using network adapter right? you make it sound like it is connected through USB. Reinstalling the driver on your pc is not a bad idea and it will remove the hard drive files. I suggest go to another pc and search from there. Also, find out the network ip address of that hard drive. If it is plugged in to the network switch then it would be easy for you to access the files even without installing the drivers.
accessing the drives and shared folder:
start-> run and type in \\harddriveIP\sharedfolder
if you don't know the ip use the software lookatlan to search for it.
