Question about LaCie Hard Disk 1TB Desktop with Hi-Speed USB2.0 USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

HD fan keeps coming on every 30 seconds and runs for 15.

There is no data transfer taking place when this happens. I am running it with my eMac under OS 10.5. I bought the unit primarily to use as a back-up & have backed-up my entire system already. However three times the computer screen turned black & I had to turn it off & on again to get back to where I was. The computer has never behaved like this before. I have another external drive connected with firewire that I have used for over two years & it has never given me a problem.

My HP 530 won't get out of dos mode Just blinks


I had this problem a ways back on a Dell. I finally found out the way to "clear" the on-board memory. First, turn off the computer/notebook. Next, remove the power cord. Now, remove the battery. Now here comes the critical part - Press down on the start button and hold it down for at least 30 seconds. What this does is drain any "power" that may be lurking in your machine. After the 30 seconds is up. re-insert the battery, then replace the power cord. Now click on the Start button and your machine should boot up properly. If not, find a reputable computer shop and take it in. Get an estimate and if it is too high think about buying a new machine and a "transfer" cable (sort of like the cable that goes into the back of your DSL modem), and you can transfer the data from the old machine to the new. MAKE SURE THAT YOU LET THE STORE KNOW THE CABLE IS TO BE USED BETWEEN COMPUTERS!
The only other way you can transfer the data from the old drive to the new computer is to get an HDD adapter for one of the slots on the new computer and mount the old HD into the adapter and place it in the expansion slot.
Good luck.

Need to transfer data from old computer to new computer


You have a bad situation. Only a mac repair pro can help you in this case as it's hard to arrange some tools to solve the problem. A pro can gain access to your emac hard drive and free up some space or transfer your data using special tools and knowledge. Thank you and good luck.

Black emac screen


Hi, this could be a number of things but the most likely cause is probably the leaking capaitor syndrome.At about the time these machines were made there was a flood of faulty capacitors throughout the electronics world and the factpriews that made the mother boards for the eMac were particularly badly hit.Did the screen exhibit any flashing or streaking or random freezing before the failure? Thses are typical precursors.
Unfortunately the only thing you can do is to take it to a (Apple) repair centre where they will be able to judge if it is repairable or not.The leaking capacitors quite often ruined the mother-board. If theyu were caught in time they were repairable but .......
If the eMac is still running, connect it to an external monitor and then clone your HD to a blank HD using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper.

Everex StepNote NC1510 Model VA250E. No video on LCD screen. No video with external LCD screen either. Power and WiFi lights come on and hard drive spins for about 3 seconds. Then nothing else happens. ...


If it is still under warantee, take it back.. It has too many (different) hardware problems to warrant paying for service. replacement hardware would cost more than a new machine. Save your hard drives for the data and purchase a newer model.

EMac stuck on loading screen


Well i don't know of a fix for the issue u have, but i do have a tip and you might be able to fix the issue you have this way as well. But if you plan on transfering files from one mac to another esp. if one is either an older mac or a portable. you would always want to make one or the other a target disk instead of two stand alone mac's.
Why, because your eMac's older and the data transfer might be failing or can't process the data fast enough to get broken down to bits to be put back on the other end thru the cat5 line. But to transfer files of over 1 GB i would recommend you start the iBook in target disk mode. But since your eMac is the one with some issues put the eMac as the target.
To connect two mac using TDM (Target Disk Mode) you will need to get either a 6-pin IEEE to 6-pin IEEE firewire 800 cable, a 6-pin IEEE to 9-pin IEEE firewire 800 cable, or a 9-pin IEEE to 9-pin IEEE (if your eMac has a 9-pin port) firewire 800 cable.
Then you connect the cable to one of the eMac's 6 or 9 pin ports and the other end to one of the iBooks firewire 800 ports. (the iBook has both the 6 pin a48d559.gif and the 9 pin. 24a3000.gif800 ports) To start up as the target disk you press and hold T immediately after pressing the power on button. once you see the firewire symbol bounce around the screen you can let go. Now its like connecting to a external hard drive.

it would probably be easier to have someone come out and take a look at it before you go buying parts you may not need to be spending money on. it may be a simple fix for a repairman and not so simple for you...

Network a G4 (OS 9) to a eMac (OS X)


OK - first, crossover cables let you network PCs together without a switch or router. I would strongly recommend returning the crossover cable and buying a router so that you can use both computers on the internet at the same time.

Second, the eMac monitor can not directly be used as a monitor for your G4 - it's not built that way. However, you can use Screen Sharing on OS X (if both have Leopard) or Apple Remote Desktop software (if you buy it) to remote control the G4 using the eMac.

You will DEFINITELY need a monitor on the G4 in order to set it up at all, so I hope you have that.

Keep in mind that you can buy, for less than $200, an LCD screen that is larger and better quality than the eMac, and it would leave the eMac useful as a second computer. Since the eMac is unlikely to work at all with Leopard, and you'd have to buy Apple Remote Desktop, you're going to spend less money by buying a separate screen for the G4.
