IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

I formatted the hard drive connecting it directly to the computer (using Windows XP). Then when i reassemble the Ethernet Big Disk, it turned on but it doesn't do anything. My question is: Is the...


Hello,
the OS of the Ethernet Big disk is on the hard drives, so you did erase them. This unit should only be formatted using the administration page drive format option.
LaCie usually does not give away the OS, so your option would be to close some other Ethernet Big Disk or Ethernet Disk Mini drives unto your now formatted drives.
Regards,

When turned on LAcie hard disk is noisy, then asks formatting


Please try it on another computer. It seems to be a hardware issue with the drive in case you are hearing a noise coming from it. In case it is under warranty, please get it replaced ASAP.

Lacie 250GB Hard Disk is not being recognized by PC (Windows XP)


Some PC's cannot deliver enough power to the USB devices to function properly through the USB port.
Does your Lacie hard disk have a power input connector if so conect a power adapter to it before you put it into your USB port.

Another alternative, get a powered USB hub connect it into your computer then connect the Lacie hard drive to the powered USB hub.

Hello, I have a LaCie 250GB Hard Drive and it´s not being recognized by my PC. I have Windows XP SP3. What should I do?


All brand-new hard drives are sold unformatted and thus don't show up in Windows until they've gone through the formatting process. To get up and running, connect the drive, boot your PC, and at the Windows desktop right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage. Click Disk Management in the left-hand tree, and every drive connected to your system will show up. Simply right-click your new drive and select New Partition. Then follow the steps to get your drive up and running.

LaCie 2d 500GB isnt recognized


Has the drive been formatted? Before using a hdd it has to be formatted. In Windows XP you have choices of FAT 32 or NTFS format. Hope this helps.
