Question about LaCie Hard Disk 1TB Desktop with Hi-Speed USB2.0 USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

My Lacie driver is no longer acessable

I've got a external hard drive device, you can also connect to your tv, to watch movies, listen to music or look at pictures. (whatever you put on our drive) Yesterday after watching a movie I turned Lacie off, about an hour later I turned her back on to watch something else. It starts up and opens the menu (browser, movie, picture, music, ..) But when I pick one of these, it gives me a blanc screen. Not one folder that's in there is displayed! I decided to plug it into my computer again, but here it won't even show on my computer. It starts up, but no icon appears of Lacie. What do I do now, I've got a hard drive that I cant use.

You could send me it lol :)

When you say it gives you a blank window did you leave it for a while - I have to do that with my 500gb hard drive which has a lot of stuff on it and it takes a while to read what it needs to before it shows the files / folders

maybe a defrag if you can get it back up and running and also try it on a different usb port on the back of the same computer it was working on

    if you right click on my computer --> manage --> disk management

    is it showing up in there ?

    If not then there is either something wrong with the usb side on your computer so try it on another computer and check in the same place or there may be something wrong with the interface board inside of the hard drive.

    If you cant get it to mount or anything like that I would contact Lacie and see if they have any suggestions ( obviously you have data on there that you want to keep ) if its out of warranty you could take the hard drive out of the external enclosure and attach it to your computer directly using the interface it has ie IDE or SATA

    Does this lacie drive have any other interface types aside from USB, such as firewire , eSATA ?

How do i recover data from my old LaCie 320gb External Hard Drive?


You MAY POSSIBLY be able to take the raw hard drive out of the case and connect it directly inside a desktop computer; it may be a standard ATA or SATA drive. If you can do that, transfer all the data to another hard drive (internal or external or network) directly.

this will not work by it self you will either need to buy a computer with media software that will support your hard drive or a DVR that will support you hard drive.
the hard drive connected to the device you have tried to connect to are not smart devices they will not support a stand alone external drive even though there is a usb port.

I formatted my hard drive and now the dvd player doesn't read it


I agree with you, probably need to install at least the drivers. Google your dvd player's make and model number with driver at the end, and see what you can find. Some sites have free drivers, and some want you to pay to update your driver base. I would try for free drivers first, and see if you can get it working with them. Not sure why you formatted your hard drive, so I'm not sure if you have another issue or not, but trying the drivers would be the first step. Good luck, hope this helps.

Lacie extern. hard drive is recognized, but I can't access files


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.

PC no longer recognises LaCie drive


Hi Katya!
There are several possible causes for this. You didn't specify if you're running Windows or Mac so I apologize in advance if some of the information I provide does not apply.
  1. If you recently performed a Windows Update, there's a patch to fix your issue; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925196#fixit4me
  2. There is a firmware upgrade for your external hard drive. It is located here: http://www.lacie.com/ca/support/drivers/index.htm?id=10007
  3. If the above solutions don't solve your problem, you may try uninstalling the device and reinstalling it. This should clear any communications errors it may have
I do hope I was able to solve your issue. I wish you the best of luck.
