Question about LaCie 500GB d2 Quadra 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I have a Lacie 500gb quadra external drive. It will boot up using the firewire cable but will not boot anymore when using the USB cables. At first it would boot using a differnet USB port on my mac bur now will not boot on any USB port. This problem started after a power outage to the system. I believe it may have to do with the drive being improperly shut down. Is it a fragmentation problem or a driver problem?
Microsoft has had some issues in regard to external devices (especially after running some updates). There is a registry patch for this situation. Click below to install the patch. It should fix your external drive problem. All the best!

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps you
