What operating system are you using? Is it windows XP or Vista? Or is it a mac?
If its under Windows, try to assign a different letter name to the drive. Go to My Computer, right click and then hit Disk Management. Locate the Lacie drive and then right click, and then choose Assign a letter name.
Let me know how it goes after you have done the steps above.
I solved the problem. It was a power supply problem. It seems after searching boards on the net, this is a common problem with the lacie hard drives. Just replace the power if your hard drive is clicking and not mounting. I think many people must be throwing the drives away thinking they are lost when it is just the power supply. Try this first before trashing it or spending a lot of money on data recovery programs/
I support the comments of (fire sine) I have the d2 120gb Lacie and it was down for two years. I took it to my apple guys and they said that I needed to go to a data recovery service which would cost a gang of money. Come to find out, when I decided to update my internal hard drive on my Mac Pro, I had to buy a SATA, IDE, USB 2.0 adapter to back up the internal and transfer to the new internal. Long story short, something said, Hey try and open the Lacie and bypass the board in the enclosure and connect directly to the Western Digital drive inside. AND WHALA! I got my info, so all I need is a new enclosure.
