Question about LaCie (300740) 160 GB Hard Drive
Hi the drive is about 2.5 years old. I use it in conjunction with a G4 powerbook. This evening, the hard drive stopped showing on my desktop. it contains all of my FCP projects and media backup etc. I have been into disc utilities and requested disk aid to repair the disk, but i am getting this message: Invalid sibling link Volume check failed. Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit 1 HFS volume checked 1 volume could not be repaired because of an error any suggestions? Mark Aldridge
Always start with the simple stuff so check the disks power supply is actually supplying power. If you're in the UK (and in some EU countries) the plug will have a fuse in it, this is also the case with some modern US electrical devises so check the fuse. If the disk is receiving power, unplug it and let it cool down for an hour before trying again. Have you tried both a disk repair and a permissions repair? Odd as it may sound you can sometimes fix a problem like this by running a permissions repair on your Macintosh HD. Next, if you have any third-party maintenance tools installed run complete maintenance on the system as well as the external disk. If non of this helps run the firmware updater for this drive, you can download it from www.lacie.com/uk/support/drivers/driver.htm?id=10053 even if it is unable to update the drive's firmware this will give you more detailed troubleshooting information, so post the result here.
