    I have the same problem.  When the 160gb mobile lacie drive is plugged in the light comes on, it spins but the laptop doesn't read it.  I have tried in three different laptop computers.  Same problem.  There are no clicking sounds so that is not a problem.  The icon just doesn't pop up.  What is there anyway possible that I can retrieve my files.....?

I'd power it on and gently put it against my ear to sense if it's even spinning. If it's spinning, powerdown the computer, disconnect the drive and try it in someone else's computer. Let me know what happens. If it is not spinning, could either be an electronic error within the enclosure or the drive has received a static shock. If it was me, I'd remove the drive from the enclosure and put it into a different enclosure for 2.5" drives. It's only a normal laptop drive inside. I'd be interested in what you find out.

I used my Lacie 160GB Mobile Disk from morning to evening on my Dell Latitude D610 Laptop, until evening when my younger brother came home from work, he demands to copy some movies from my Lacie 160GB...


This happened because your brother's computer is infected with a virus or otherwise corrupted. Take the drive and both computers to a local tech to further diagnose the problem and that tech can probably recover your files. I think your brother should pay for the repairs - his computer has some malware that may have overwritten your files. This is why you should do two things - first, always have two kinds of backups - copy vital files to a usb memory stick, and second, don't lend anyone any device you plug into your computer - that is how viruses are spread.

My LaCie was working great and suddenly I can't access the files. Windows Vista tells me the drive needs to be formatted. Did it crash? Can I recover the files using a recovery program?


I have recently completely recoverd two lost partitions using Paragon Partition Manager 10.0. I was very impressed with the program. The option find lost partitions is under Partitons - Advanced.

LaCie drive does not come on


Maybe the usb chip in the hard drive enclosure that converts ide into usb failed. You could replace the enclosure (they sell enclosures at best buy) but it could be quite a hassle.

Lacie Mobile Drive stopped working


The smallest impact can be tremendous. Take the drive and your computer into a quiet environment. After connecting the drived, out it to your ear. What do you hear? Does it vibrate slightly confimring that it has spun up and is mechanically functioning?
