Question about LaCie Big Disk External USB 2.0 1TB Hard Drive

1 Answer

HD stops working after 45 seconds

I have two 1TB drives that I purchased about the same time 6 months ago. Until now,they have worked flawlessly. However, recently one of them will stop working just after the system boots. At the advice of a friend, I swapped power bricks and the problem moved to the second drive. Swapping the bricks back returns the problem to the original drive. 
So, what should I do now? It seems that the power brick is the source of the problem, so I would need a replacement, yes?

It seems you figure out the issue. If its under warranty then have it the "power" replaced.

A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.

Possibly yes, but you would have to send it back to it's manufacturer.

If you don't want to do that, but want to rescue your data, you could remove the casing. Inside it there is an actual HD that can be connected to any desktop.

But to be honest, i believe that you should send it to the manufacturer.

here is the manual

I dont think yours is a battery issiue, I would call the manufacture on the first page of the manual.
although if you dont replace the charge on the unit at least monthly the batteries wont be healthy. If you are going to store it make sure the alkaline batteries are out of the mic or transmitter unit. and you can unplug the rechargeable one as well. this will help the battery life.
