Backup slow


Hi,
You don't specify whether previously on your USB it was the same lacie external or whether it was a different external drive. It sounds like you were using a different external drive, most likely a single drive.
You've specified that you've got your lacie setup in raid 5. Raid 5 gives a very good read spead and a good redundancy for incase a drive fails, however it's write speed is very very slow.
It will be much slower than a single drive on USB for writing to it (i.e. backups), but you should see a huge performance boost in reading from the drive than your previous usb.
If you need it to be faster, you would be better suited looking at configuring it for one of the following raid setups:
Raid 0: striping (not recommended for backups) - data is split over all drives, however if 1 drive fails you lose all data.
Raid 10: striping + mirror . half the drives are striped (like above), but the other half mirror the striping half so if one drive fails there's a backup of it. You only get half the disk space though, so if you have 4 x 1Tb drives, then you'll only get 2Tb of space.

Laptop cant find external drive


Is it just a new plug in USB drive? If so try assigning it a different drive letter on another computer Control panel - Administrative tools - Computer management - Disk Management (in left hand panel on XP) - Then change the drive letter. ( it will say that some programs may stop working - this is if there are programs or shortcuts on a computer that already point to data on the drive as they will still be looking for the old drive letter. Don't change the drive letter if the external drive is full of stuff.) This process has worked for me

Check if the disk is NTFS or FAT32 or some other format. Because if it is in raw format you are dead! Also another tip is call the merchant you bought the USB from. Because if you buy things online, sometimes the product is bad quality. Another solution that saves time is to change to another USB.

Hard Drive not detected


If you are sure that the disk is okay, then I do suspect it is a power problem. Laptop USB ports often can not provide as much power as desktop USB ports. If possible try using an external power adapter with the disk and see if that works.
You can try some other external hard disk troubleshooting ideas, but probably it is the power.

Format problem


Do not format the card, try photo recovery software to rescue the lost photos, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the SD card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Bios reports 4 Gb of Memory, OS/ XP Pro sp2 only reports 3 GB, just installed 2 x1 Gb today


This is a limitation of Windows XP. There is no fix. You would have to install Vista to be able to address all 4GB. I would not necessarily recommend this "upgrade" as Vista OS will consume more memory anyway, leaving you less free memory for your applications. The end result may not give you any better performance but there will be much pain in getting everything setup as you had it on XP. On the other hand, if it is a relatively new install and you dont have many customisations, then perhaps the more stable OS would be worth it. Your choice.

How to recover data from lacie etherdisk when it does not keep a network conntection.


I'll have to look into it a little more but off the top of my head I would say that the nic may be going bad or some other component of the etherdisk. You can try opening it up and putting the hard drive into an enclosure and connecting it to a pc via usb to get the data, you can also then share the usb drive and use it over the network, however removing the hard drive may void any warranty you may have. If the hard drive is in fact bad then you should be able to replace it and then continue to use the device. I'll get back to you when I get more info about the device.
