LaCie Rikiki stops working. The led does not blink.


This kind of fault is usually the case to drive interface. You can remove the drive and try to plug it into you computer using the IDE or SATA cables your drive needs. You will then be able to tell if it is your drive or the case.

Can you open the case and remove the HDD? I looked at the specs on the device and I didn't see what interface the drive is, I would assume it's a SATA, I don't know for sure. Can you ID it?

Formatteren


New drives have to be readied for use. Try Start > Run (aka Search in Win 7) type dskmgmt.msc. Look for your drive there. It should be without a drive letter. Right clicking will give you the options of initializing, creating disc partitions, assigning logical drives, formatting. If this seems a little daunting. A wizard should load. If not there is refresh icon on the tool bar.

I joined another internet cafe in cambodia and hooked up my USB drive Lacie Rikiki 500Gb and the McAfee OAS on the host computer reported it found a virus in it and deleted it. It was probably a boot file...


The computer at the Internet Cafe' probably was virus-infected, and the computer-virus wrote a computer-virus onto your USB memory-stick.

Just click "cancel" to that "which program" prompt.

Then, open "My Computer", and right-mouse-click on the icon for the USB device, and click "Explore", to view the files/folders.
