Question about Freecom Computers & Internet
If you checked with alternative cables, and on another computer, then your left with one option only. Removing the HDD from the casing.
If the HDD is still working but the case is not. You need to remove it from the case and connect it to a computer directly.
If once removed it is still not working you can try to put it in a sealed plastic bag and in a freezer for a day, the quickly try to connect it to a computer.
If it is still not working you only other solution is to send it to a specialized company that will open it and read the data directly from the plates. This is done in a sealed environment (think high tech dust free rooms with people coverd in white)
Thus it is expensive and usefull only id the data has a real value to you.

Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
