The LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini is an external hard drive that you can connect to your computer through an Ethernet connection.


Those who work on large projects that might require more memory than a computer has can use one of these devices to save information from the project.


Video editors often use hard drives such as these because videos often take up so much memory on their computers.


To keep information on the drives secure, change the administrator password from time to time.


Type "http://edmini" into your Web browser.


Logon to the page using your current login information. The default username and password is "Admin."


Click the "Users" tab.


Click "Change the Administrator Password."


Type and confirm the new password.


or if this fails

SOURCE: dead hdd

I am assuming that you have a Windows platform. Take the hard drive out out and try it on a Mac. Sometimes a Mac will pick up faster than Windows. I would try that first for sure. Finding a Mac computer is not hard if you have a computer retail store near bye. Some smaller outfits may test it for you for free and hook it up to a Mac. If my solution sounds off the wall: consider opening your hard drive knowing that any wrong tinkering can easily result in a totally useless drive. If you are ready to open it if a Mac doesn't work, go slow and don't bang it around. You can't get very far, but you could check for any loose wires and check the board with a tester when no power is attached. You should not try to open the area with the physical drives, any wrong move there will destroy any chance of recovery. If all seems to fail, then yes, give it a tap or so. The FBI will do it for a crazy cost that would make buying a car easy.Good luck

SOURCE: How can recover data from free agent desktop hdd

Well you should have gone in and marked the sectors that you think are bad, by formatting it odds are you wiped the data off it, you can try a low level recover but I dont think your going to find much. Sorry format means format.

SOURCE: Hi, My Seagate 80GB IDE HDD is not detected in

If data in your hard drive is really important to you, try to look for a similar model hard drive. Then swap the logic board of the good hard drive with the defective hard drive. If the cause of problem is the logic board, then your hard drive should work by now. If you are not that technical, you can ask a technician to do this for you. You can buy a second hand hard disk for a few bucks at ebay.
