Hi, I have not read the other advice you have tried but what I can tell you is that "vary many" people have the same problem with these Lacie 500g drives. The only solution that has been found to work is unfortunatly returning it to Lacie for repair. Most other options seems to either not fix the problem or it fixes the drive for a short while and then the problem returns. :(

LaCie 500GB external will not show up on mac desktop. Blue light on, whirrs as if working but no icon on desktop (not mounted)


Did you format the drive using Disk Utility? Open "disk utility" from the dock icon or applications/utilities folder. Click the drive name on the left side of the disk utility window. click the "partition" tab in the window, next click the "options" tab and select GUID Partition scheme, or any Mac compatible scheme, read each explanation of the schemes. Name and resize your partitions, click apply. This is how it works running Leopard, not positive if the same applies to Tiger. I hope this helps you

Mount.... sound like you got a Mac... Don't use the Mac sugested fix. The lacie Website has many revovery software options and Third party software is very good at that as well

I would try that first or try to contact a lacie tech and/or a mac tech.

If this is helpful please email and notify fixya. Thanks

LaCie 160 GB Hard Drive


Always start with the simple stuff so check the disks power supply is actually supplying power. If you're in the UK (and in some EU countries) the plug will have a fuse in it, this is also the case with some modern US electrical devises so check the fuse. If the disk is receiving power, unplug it and let it cool down for an hour before trying again. Have you tried both a disk repair and a permissions repair? Odd as it may sound you can sometimes fix a problem like this by running a permissions repair on your Macintosh HD. Next, if you have any third-party maintenance tools installed run complete maintenance on the system as well as the external disk. If non of this helps run the firmware updater for this drive, you can download it from www.lacie.com/uk/support/drivers/driver.htm?id=10053 even if it is unable to update the drive's firmware this will give you more detailed troubleshooting information, so post the result here.
