Re: LaCie Porsche 160GB

Firstly, you need to remove the drive from the bay, connect it via an adapter to your ide cable on your pc and check that it spins up and calibrates. If it spins and calibrates, then the bay has been blown and if the drive does not spin the drive has been blown. If this is the case, you need to send it for repair and data recovery. Establish where your problem lies.

I was copying an avi file from the 250GB lacie porsche hard drive (USB2) and the USB cable got removed while the copy was in progress. I tried restarting the computer but the hard drive isnt regonised. it...

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.

I have an old LaCie d2 160GB Hard Drive Extreme with Triple Interface (circa 2005)... I have lost my power cord and I can't seem to be able to find one online to purchase...Does anyone know where I can...

your drive can be used with any D2 or Big Disk power supply as well as some LaCie Porsche power supplies (you need to make sure the connector is the same).
Searching for LaCie Power supply on eBay will give you a few hits that match your needs.

Imac is not detecting my LaCie External Hard Drive

Do you have a CD disc software installer of your external hard drive (F.A. Porshe 160GB).? If you got it, you must reinstall it, so that your Imac can detect it. Otherwise, find it at the internet and download it.

I need a power cable for a lacie FA Porsche desktop drive

Hi John,

Replacements are generally harder to acquire than hens teeth. If you cannot find one, the much simpler solution is to take your drive to a PC shop and ask the technicians to put the drive in a new enclosure for you which will come with it's own AC adapter included.

Hope this helps FixYa,

When plugged in, icon doesn't appear on the desktop.

We have a few of these Lacie Design by F.A. Porsche 500GB drives in our office. Our editor's drive stop working this morning (was fine the day before) and had all her files backed up from the last three years on it and was making a very soft clicking sound. After taking the whole thing apart and trying drive in another F.A. Porsche caddy with no success, we tried a different power supply hey presto it started up no problems. My drive that suddenly stop working earlier in the year we tried a power supply from a external Lacie DVD Writer and again drive is working. Just to make sure tried the original power supply and would not mount. So if your hard drive stops working it maybe the power supply rather the the hard drive.
