Question about LaCie Rikiki Computers & Internet
Hello, I have the above HD on windows 7 which worked until today. Now the device manager says that it "was impossible to install the drivers". Where can I download them? Thanks, Paolo

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Some PC's cannot deliver enough power to the USB devices to function properly through the USB port.
Does your Lacie hard disk have a power input connector if so conect a power adapter to it before you put it into your USB port.
Another alternative, get a powered USB hub connect it into your computer then connect the Lacie hard drive to the powered USB hub.

I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK

First lets try this. Shutdown your laptop and reboot. Once your up and running, plug in your portable hard drive. You might try a different USB port. If windows doesn't let you know its there then you need to look for it by going into your administration tools menu. Of course this depends on what version of windows your are running, if it is windows.
Maybe you can answer this? Have you been disconnecting that hard drive without telling windows you are going to disconnect it first? If the answer is yes you may have corrupted that drive which is why windows is not recognizing it.
Good Luck and just let me know if you need more help.
Sincerely, Peter N.
