Question about LaCie d2 (300507) 120 GB Hard Drive
First, I want to apoIogize if this probelm has already been addressed. I couldn't find though. Anyway I just used the HD for the first time in months, encountered the same problem on SIX different MAC laptops:
- the blue light comes on, does not flicker, just stays on.
- disk not spinning up/starting up.
- doesn't mount either.
- I checked the Firewire cable, even used a different one - no change.
- I then plugged in my iPod via Firewire, to see if that port on my computer was fualty. The iPod DID work.
- Apple System Profiler detects an "Unknown Device"
- Green Light on Power Supply box is on.
- There is an odd hum that wasn't present before coming from power supply.
I am really hoping it is just the power supply!!! I have been reading that some of these power boxes can die but still provide enough power to illuminate the blue light, but not the HD itself.
Thanks in advance for your help everyone.
What you have is a common hard drive in an enclosure, check eBay or OWC (google it) and get an enclosure for the drive (I would take the drive out first and make sure it is ata not a newer sata, other world computing will reply to an email and I have used them in the UK and Canada, they are in the USA) the enclosure should be cheap ($20 or so)
