Question about LaCie Computers & Internet

LaCie icon won't show up on my mac desktop

I just backed up my MacBook onto my LaCie little disk for the first time then ejected the Lacie icon before removing the USB cable by clicking the eject icon at the left side of the screen just above where my desktop and document icons are for Tiger.
I reconnected the LaCie again to check something and the icon wouldn't show up on my desktop and then I heard a clicking in the Lacie.  I waited and the icon didn't show up, so I unplugged the USB power sharing cable from my USB cable rather than from the computer b/c there wasn't any way to eject it.
After reconnecting this, the blue light on the LaCie has gone off, the clicking has stopped, and I can hear it still humming.  
My questions are:
1) Did I damage something by disconnecting these cables? 2) Is there a way to get the LaCie to show up on my desktop now? 3)What is the best way to solve this dilemma without damaging anything?
Thanks, Meredith

I restored my computer's HD using LaCie. Now, my Macbook won't boot us using it's own HD, just LaCie


Hi SuzanneHow did you do the install? It's important that you do the correct procedure. First you should have installed the OS from the disc thaty came with your MacBook. It would have then asked you how you wanted to procede. One of the options is to restore from a back-up or from another drive.
You pick the Lacie and let it do iots stuff. As a rule, when that finishes the machine restarts from the new drive.
What you can do to check is shut the machine down. Hold down the Option key (alt key) and then press the power button to start it up again - don't let go of the option key. After one or two moments you will get a grey screen with a two icons. One will be your HD and the other will be the LaCie. You then choose which onwe to start from and that should be that. If you only get the Lacie showing up then it measn that you do not have a system on the internal HD and that it needs to be restored from the CD/DVD.
Let us know what happens.

It could be that your new mac has a newer operating system on it, so I think you should be using the new itego backup assistant from iomega see http://www.lacie.com/products/product.htm?id=10323 this tells you what it does and you can also download it from here as well

Hope this helps

Lacie icon not showing up on my desktop


Try disconnecting the usb cable from the drive and take the drive to a quiet place.

Power up the drive and put your ear next to it. Listen for the internal disk to speed up and then click (which means it's ready). At this point you should have a solid blue LED on the enclosure.

If not, either the disk is bad, the enclosure's controller is bad, or the external power brick is bad (put your ear next to the power brick and if you hear a faint clicking sound, the power brick is bad and you can order a new one from LaCie for about $16.00.

You rate will be much appreciated!

Hello! Had the same problem - go onto the Lacie official website. Select whatever type of drive that it is you have, and simply go onto the software update page. I literally downloaded the desktop manager (I own the Sam Hecht Little Disk) and it appeared! Good luck
