Does it make any clicking/clunking sounds like any of these?
If yes - it's really bad and there's nothing you could by yourself..
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all then try to remove it from enclosure and connect directly to a PC.

SOURCE: I'm looking for a Windows
You don't REALLY think that LaCie would pay a programmer to write a driver for a NEW piece of hardware to run on an OBSOLETE operating system, do you? Have you looked for a driver on the LaCie website? If you didn't find one there, I GUARANTEE you that you won't find one ANYWHERE, because drivers don't write themselves.
Of course, you can always call the company and complain, which is a waste of time, or pay a programmer to write a driver for it, or learn how to program and write your own driver. If you DO write a driver for it, you MIGHT be able to sell it to LaCie, if they're still in business by then, although the odds are excellent that nobody will want a Win98 driver by the time you learn how to write drivers.
My advice is, get a modern operating system, which will have all the drivers for your external hard drive embedded into it. Ubuntu is a good choice if you prefer Gnome, or Kubuntu if you prefer KDE.
You're running Windows 98, you probably have old hardware (similar to what I use), so in that case, you might prefer to use Xubuntu, which runs great on older hardware:
or Lubuntu, which is designed to save energy, which makes it great for older battery-powered equipment such as laptops or the new netbooks, or even for old desktop systems:
Pick a new OS and get rid of ALL the Windows ****: no more antivirus, antimalware, antispyware, or antiscareware programs running all the time, no more nasty ActiveX controls which allow your system to get infected when you open Internet Explorer, no more rootkit problems, no more need to defrag ANY hard drive EVER... Get rid of Windows, get rid of the headaches, and get FREE drivers that will work with your new external drive as soon as you plug it in.
Switch to Linux, and make your old hardware run faster than ever before.
