Question about LaCie Design by F. A. Porsche 160 GB Hard Drive

Lacie Mobile Drive stopped working

My Lacie Mobile Drive stopped working today. It doesn't show up on my laptop or PC when I plug it in, like it used to. All I can think of is that I dropped it about an inch or two, but it hardly even had much impact, so I didn't think it should have been affected. Any idea what the problem might be/what it would cost to repair this so I can retrieve my files? Thanks for your help!

    Kind of same problem, but I didn't drop it or anything. Just plugged it in a friends computer and after that, not showing up at any computer?

    I have the same problem.  The drive powers up, and I can see it on my PC, but it doesn't show up on my Mac.

The smallest impact can be tremendous. Take the drive and your computer into a quiet environment. After connecting the drived, out it to your ear. What do you hear? Does it vibrate slightly confimring that it has spun up and is mechanically functioning?

My drive was running ok but didn't show up on the computer. Sent it for warranty repairs. Very good door to door service, the only thing I needed was to print some forms, call a phone number, give it to the pick-up guy and wait for a week when my Lacie returned home again, as good as new.

Power Light comes on, no function what so ever


Check to make sure that the FireWire or USB cables are
correctly attached and firmly seated in both the drive and
computer's FireWire or USB ports. Disconnect them, wait 30
seconds, and reconnect them. If the drive is still not
recognized, restart your computer and try again. If they are
correctly connected and your drive still does not power on,
trying using the optional power sharing cable, described in
section 2.3 Connecting the Optional Power Supply of the LaCie Mobile Hard Drive User Manual.

My mobile hard drive lacie rugged crashed, doesn't show on laptop or iMac and i need to recover my data stored in it


You may need to send it out to a data recovery lab. Before that try a remote access data recovery service like http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They operate an online data recovery service via the internet and also offer do-it-yourself data recovery assistance.

Blue light come on when plugged into laptop but does not show on laptop


Hello,
this drive is mainly a Network drive. To use it with the USB, if you have a PC, you will need drivers that can be downloaded from LaCie. If you have a MAC, there are no way to use the drive with USB.
If you have a Router at home, connect the drive to it with an Ethernet cable and then use the LaCie Network Assistant to access it. It is easier.
Regards,

I used my Lacie 160GB Mobile Disk from morning to evening on my Dell Latitude D610 Laptop, until evening when my younger brother came home from work, he demands to copy some movies from my Lacie 160GB...


This happened because your brother's computer is infected with a virus or otherwise corrupted. Take the drive and both computers to a local tech to further diagnose the problem and that tech can probably recover your files. I think your brother should pay for the repairs - his computer has some malware that may have overwritten your files. This is why you should do two things - first, always have two kinds of backups - copy vital files to a usb memory stick, and second, don't lend anyone any device you plug into your computer - that is how viruses are spread.

Lacie mobile drive 120 gb


I'd power it on and gently put it against my ear to sense if it's even spinning. If it's spinning, powerdown the computer, disconnect the drive and try it in someone else's computer. Let me know what happens. If it is not spinning, could either be an electronic error within the enclosure or the drive has received a static shock. If it was me, I'd remove the drive from the enclosure and put it into a different enclosure for 2.5" drives. It's only a normal laptop drive inside. I'd be interested in what you find out.
