Question about LaCie (300770) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Drive mysteriously went from 250GB to 55MB!?

Is there a way to reformat the drive and start from scratch? A friend gave this thing to me because he gave up trying to figure out why it freaked out. When I look at disc properties it says there is only 55MB disc space total. What the heck happened to the other 249.945GB?? Lacie is completely unresponsive to questions regarding this problem... Thanks.

Hi, It would seem that the LaCie(300770) 250 GB Hard Drive would need partitioning and not only formatting to be able to recover the missing space. This is better explained by Microsoft Support . Alternately, you can right click on "My Computer, click on Manage, click on Disk Management, right click on the Lacie drive and delete its current partition. Ok or Apply, Windows may ask you to reboot. Do the Disk Management again. If the Lacie's original/erroneous partition has been successfully deleted, it will now show as "Unknown Partition". To create your new partition, right click on the unallocated space (black stripe on top), click on "New Partition" on the menu. To format, simply right click on the Lacie and click on Format. As a matter of choice, I prefer to use Partition Magic and/or Seatools for Windows. If using any of the above method and the Lacie will not partition/format or errors keep on appearing, it may be that the Lacie is no longer usable as a whole. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

My Toshiba 250gb external hard drive model hddr250e03x is not recognized by my macbook pro but the light turns on. It works on my friend's macbook pro but not mine


I'm assuming you mean it doesn't appear in Finder. Open up disk utility and it should appear there if you say the MacBook is providing power to the hard drive light. You may have to reformat or reset your Mac if you want it in finder

Unlock a wd scorpio black 250gb


I would just delete any partitions and format. Hard drives are extremly hard to lock down, especaily after connecting on a differnt machine.

Insert the Window install disc and boot from to do a clean setup, instead of going through Windows.

Wants to reformat drive when trying to access.


Install the drive as a secondary drive on known working computer. Go into it via windows explorer, locate and backup the files you want on a usb stick or external hard drive. Format the drive, load your OS, and reinstall the files you saved from the drive before you formatted it.

Lacie 250GB External Hardive to be used between a PC and a MAC


Be carefull when moving data from Macs to Windows etc. Your best bet would be to start again. It should work if you get your friend to put the data on the drive & copy it directly to your Mac. From there, you can safely copy data to the PC, but may have trouble accessing that same data after the PC has had it.
