I am not sure what type of computer you have that your LaCie is connected to, but first and foremost, make sure the external hard drive has been properly formatted to work with the operating system your computer has. For Windows computers: the LaCie should be formatted in either FAT32 or NTFS (recommended- more secure).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------- If your LaCie is already formatted, then the best way to import your entire iTunes library from the internal hard drive of your computer into the LaCie, especially if you are unable to drag and drop the library into you LaCie, is to try a simple copy and pasting of the ENTIRE iTunes folder from its home on your computer to the LaCie hard drive.
You can also use the website I like to reference which provides some good alternatives to effectively migrating your iTunes Library from a PC or Mac to your external hard drive:
The webpage of LaCie support doesn't have the "LaCiee Setup Assitant" program. And LaCie Backup Assistant is another program. Can't you guys read? He asked for another program! So you did not help! I need it too, but it seems impossible to find, Cheers!
This way it should work... Connect your drive to the computer... Go to: Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer management. A new window will appear... Select Storage > Disk management on the left of the window. Now you will see the different drives that are connected or part of your system. One of the drives listed there is your LaCie, i think you'll recognize it by name... Right-click on it, and select 'format' In the new window, select the new volume label (as you like it), the file system (use NTFS), and set allocation unit size to default. Make sure 'Perform a quick format' is not checked...
Then click OK. Your drive will be formatted now... Don't interrupt the process
It would seem that the LaCie(300770) 250 GB Hard Drive would need partitioning and not only formatting to be able to recover the missing space.
This is better explained by Microsoft Support .
Alternately, you can right click on "My Computer, click on Manage, click on Disk Management, right click on the Lacie drive and delete its current partition. Ok or Apply, Windows may ask you to reboot. Do the Disk Management again. If the Lacie's original/erroneous partition has been successfully deleted, it will now show as "Unknown Partition".
To create your new partition, right click on the unallocated space (black stripe on top), click on "New Partition" on the menu. To format, simply right click on the Lacie and click on Format.
As a matter of choice, I prefer to use Partition Magic and/or Seatools for Windows.
If using any of the above method and the Lacie will not partition/format or errors keep on appearing, it may be that the Lacie is no longer usable as a whole.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
