Windows 7 do not recognise the Lacie 1T lc3u device

Hi Dan

Does this work on other windows systems such as XP?

This could be anything from a defective HDD, defective Lacie enclosure, Odd format on the Hard disk, bad or confused USB port on your PC etc.

Check it is seen in device manager
Check it is seen in disk management
Check it is formatted in either NTFS or FAT32 in disk management

This are the best suggestions i can think of with such little information.

Tape media eject

You might be using the wrong type of media in the drive. Make sure you are only using DDS4 or DDS3 tapes in the drive.

If you are using the right media type then try a cleaning tape and then a brand new data tape.

If you are still having issues the go to who have these in stock at very low prices. Since these units are so inexpensive now it seem false economy to waste too much time fixing them.

Cartridge is basically a hard disk, with several platters, contained in a hard, plastic case. The cartridge contains neither the heads nor the motor for spinning the disk; both of these items are in the drive unit.
