SOURCE: Lacie ED mini v2 won't start up.

I had the same problem twice, but it was the power adapters each time that were causing the problem. It wasn't the unit itself. Lacie replaced the power adapters and it worked fine.

I suggest you contact Seagate support via www.seagate.com. It may take a few days for them to respond. If they haven't answered after say 3 days, repeat the request. Please have the model number and serial number of your disk to hand. You need to more specific about the description and name of your product than you have been here - I believe from my readings that Seagate's GoFlex range is huge. Also your computer's operating system and possibly the manufacturer and model of your computer. How are you connecting the drive to your computer (ie which interface are you using) ? On the form describe the issue in as detail as possible. (copy and paste what you have written here). You could also try browsing the Seagate website for ages or joining the Seagate community, and searching that, or posting your problem there.
If you have a GoFlex net, this might be informative:
http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/214495en
If relevant see section 7 of this
http://www.seagate.com/docs/pdf/en-US/whitepaper/ug-goflex-home-us.pdf

ALWAYS keep BACKUPs of data that you cannot afford to lose, in case of events like this.

I found some solutions already listed here on FixYa that really worked. Here's the link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t2950434-wd_elements_usb_drive_not_recognized

I also left a comment on exactly what I did to fix my problem using the instructions that were listed thanks to etcrCustomPC. I had tried everything for days including "Safely Removing" the USB Mass Storage Device, and restarting Windows; downloading updated drivers, scanning for changes, and updating drivers on "Device Manager". I went online but did not find anything helpful other than what I had already attempted. I saw "FixYa", and decided to try it out. I kept clicking on all the different sites on "FixYa" listed. Yes, I will go literally through the web until I find or figure out a solution. You could call me a "research investigator". I may not know how to solve the problem, but I will search diligently through lots of "Trial and Error" information until I find one that works. This one definitely worked for me. I hoped this helped. If it does not, I will post all the related links later so it makes searching for a solution a lot easier. Thanks FixYa. I have fallen in love with this website, and adding it to my "Favorites".

My HDD can detected by the BIOS, but it cannot be read in Windows Explorer. How to solve this problem?


Is this hard disk brand new? If yes, you have to format it before using it. If the hard disk is not new and has alredy data on it, there might be another problem since the format procedure will destroy all these data. If the hard disk is an external one (connected with USB, Firewire e.t.c.) it is already formated so the problem is elsewhere. Please clarify me the details in order to help you.

Waiting clarification, don't hesitate to post.

My Wedstern Digital MyBopok external hard drive is not recognized by my PC (XP Pro OS) and the green circle light at the fron of the drive is flashing. What doers this mean?


I suggest you to leave it at "power on" state and "connected" at the computer for some hours (maybe all over night) in order to rebuild the index at the hard disk.

Maxtor 3200 not working


Check for error code 10 in the Windows device manager. You likely have a power supply problem.
