Hi there,
My lacie is making a strange noise when it starts up and I cannot find it on my mac. Is there any way I can reach the data on the driver?

Chances are the drive is bad. Try taking it to another computer- if it doesn't work there, then the prognosis is poor. Data recovery services are available, but pricey.

hi.
maybe problem is caused by your Power supply.
so i recommend you to do these:
1- remove the main hard drive and only connect "250GB lacie porsche hard drive".
and see is it recognized or not.
2- go to the bios (with pressing "delete key" at start of turning on) and navigate to power center.
then enable power saving mode.

It does sound like there is a problem with the drive. I would recommend that you take the drive back to the store or contact LaCie's support about getting an RMA for the drive.

I can't see my mac lacie ext hd on windows pc! Any software available? Thanks in advance


you can always goto Lacie.com , there you can find
all available drivers for their products , ?mac both
windows and mac use the same types of HDD
either an Ultra ATA or a SATA and even the new solid state , I have never heard of just a mac HDD
a good rule of thumb is to trouble shoot from the beginning like when a light doesn't work the first
thing you check is the bulb . start from the power cord , then the USB cord & USB hub , I'll be here
waiting for your reply

Strange noises, disk won't fully spin or start up...


Your AC adapter is "dying", and must be replaced.
Is it still under "warranty", i.e., you contact LaCie,
get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) number,
they ship you a new adapter. If you ship them the old adapter,
within a week, they will _not_ charge your credit-card the $30.

Hi,

If it recognizes on the Macs but not the PC the first question to ask is, is the drive formatted for Mac or PC? If it is formatted for Mac the PC will need to add www.macdisk.com to provide a driver that will let it use the ac format.

If it's formatted for PC or if you already have Macdisk installed then the problem is with the PC but may require a bit more digging.

Let me know how you make out,

Chris

I had the same issue -- turned out that power supply was going bad so the drive wouldn't spin up all the way; this could explain the strange noises you're hearing. I put in a support ticket with LaCie at their website and they sent me a new power supply at no charge (I was within the warranty period, I think).

Hard drive making strange alarm/chiming noise and won't load onto desktop


Listen to your power supply and see if it is making a faint buzzing noise. Try your device with a new power supply. With a new power supply my drive now runs fine, and was not corrupted.
