Question about LaCie 2big Network (2-disk RAID) (301257U) 1000 GB Network Storage Server

2 Answers

Replaced with new drives but can't see the unit in my network (MAC) nor ping to it. But when I put in the old drives I can see the unit in my (MAC) network.

    I failed to mention that I had already performed this function with formatting and setting at least one partition on each drive via my MAC thru disk utility then, placing the drives into my LaCie 2 big Network controller. I also performed the reset function of this unit from a solution posted on this web site but, to no avail. Still, I am getting the Red light on the front of the case. In the meanwhile, I will continue to research this.... Any additional information is greatly appreciated.

I've just discovered this as well and you need to set the original drives to safe100, wait until the mirroring finishes and then replace one drive at a time. The factory drives hold the operating system for the unit. I unwittingly wiped both old drives before figuring this out.

New drives must be given a partition before they show up in your network.
Open Finder, in applications find the Utilities folder, there you will find the program Disk Utlilty where you will see the new drives on the left. Select the drive and on the top right is the option to Partition the drive.

Problem with cisco sg500


I'm not familiar with the device, but it might be something in the configuration. It could be DHCP, it could be something deeper.
I suggest contact Cisco support directly, they have support forums too.

I need the procedure to enter a new ip in a tallygenicom 9022. we can print out he old address but cannot get info on putting in a new one


If the printer already has an IP address and you know what it is by printing a config page, the simplest thing to do is connect a pc directly to the printer using a cross over network cable. Ensure the IP address in the PC is in the same range as the printer ie only the fourth octet is different. Ensure you can PING the printer Enter the current IP address of the 9022 in a web browser and it should take you to the printers internal web page whic will allow you to change network settings. An alternative option is to use the ARP command at the DOS prompt, for this you will need the MAC for the network card on the printer, this will be on the printed network config page and on a lable on the network card. For help on the ARP command type; ARP /? At the DOS command propt on a PC. A third option is to use a software utility called SYNCTHRU supplied on the installation CD that was with the network card when new.

I pluged in wrong power supply to external hardrive there is a light flashing so there is power but my laptop cannot find drive can i retrieve my data


The drives in these units are pretty standard SATA or PATA drives.
Personally, to retrieve data in these situations, since it's the USB converter board that is likely damaged, I open up the box and take out the drive, and put it into a PC that's running MACDrive (software that lets a PC use a MAC formatted drive)
You may however simply be able to get another external drive enclosure (about $20 USD such as THESE) and put the drive into it and be up and running again on the MAC with the old drive in the new enclosure.

Hi Sir,
I guess you chose a wrong option. This is not Chat but let me give you the instructions on how to get your prints working on both macs.

First of all check the ip address of the mac. Check it on both macs. To do that follow the instructions below.


Step 1. Click the Apple logo on the top left of the screen.
Step 2 Select "System Preferences".
Step 3. Select "Network" under the "Internet and Network" section.
Step 4 Select which connection you'd like to check in the "Show" drop-down menu. If you're hooked up via ethernet, select "Built In Ethernet". If you have a wireless network, select "AirPort".
Step 5 Select "TCP/IP" on the "Network" screen.
Step 6 View your computer's IP address on the subsequent screen displayed on your Mac.

Now you know the ip address of your mac.

Now we have to ping the ip address and have to check if there is connectivity between macs. Follow the instuction below to check that :



Step 1. On Finder in the dock.
Step 2 Click on Macintosh HD in the window.
Step 3 Click on Applications.
Step 4 Click on Utilities.
Step 5 Double-click on Network Utility.
Step 6 In the Network Utility window, click on the Ping tab.
Step 7 In the field under "Please enter the network address to ping"(enter the ip adress of other computer)
Step 8 Click the Ping button.

Try theses steps first and check if they have connection.

Wireless on laptop not active, switch not working


First, go to device manager and see if it was detected. Then, go to the properties and check out to see if it is working.

Next, go to command line by typing cmd in the run dialogue box and type ipconfig /all

If you get a mac address from the network card, then go ping 127.0.0.1 and see if TCP/IP is installed correctly.

If the device manager detects the card, and when you ping 127.0.0.1 and get a response, then the problem isn't the actual wireless card.

If this happens, do a windows system restore to when it was working. Then, if you have to, do a destructive system restore. If it still doesn't detect the card, then the problem is with the wireless card and it needs to be replaced.

Contact the laptop manufacturer to see where the closest repair depot is.

If you have done all of these and still can't get the wireless activemore than likely the ping the mac address of the Just go to command line and type ipconfig /all

Sound Audio card?


Macs don't generally use a replaceable sound card in a slot like PCs. Instead they usually have sound capability built into the main board.
Which model of Mac do have and what model of CD player did you put in it?
Can you hear sound from sources other than the CD player - such as iTunes, internet, system alerts, etc?
As I recall, one CD drive I upgraded on an older Mac did require a light wire harness for the audio output. None of the DVD drives I have replaced recently have needed this.
Did you, personally, remove the old drive? If needed for the new drive, I'm guessing the old drive would have had an audio cable too.

If it is a network drive. I believe it must have an IP address.

The best way to start troubleshotting is to know the ip address

Then you can ping the Ip address to know if your computer can see the drive.

If the ping time out...then the drive is not on the network.

If the ping reply then it is on the network. so you'll need to look at the share.

Cannot find print server at all


How this works: Restoring the PocketPrintServer to Factory Defaults In most cases, the best way to restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults is through "telnet". However, if you are unable to connect to the device because of a configuration error, use the following method which does not require a network connection. To restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults, complete the following steps: 1. Disconnect the PocketPrintServer from the network and power cycle it. When it powers up, the LED will rapidly blink orange for five seconds. 2. Power down the device during the rapid orange blink period. Power up the device and power it down during that orange blink period two more times. 3. Reconnect the network cable and power up the PocketPrintServer. It will have restored itself to factory defaults and will rapidly blink green as it searches for a RARP or BOOTP server to find an IP address. Gleaning If an IP address has not been permanently assigned when the PocketPrintServer is powered on or reset, it will look for a "ping" packet on the network. If the PocketPrintServer receives a "ping" packet within two minutes, it will accept the IP address in the "ping" packet as its own address. To use Gleaning, you must have super-user privileges on a UNIX system. Gleaning also works under Windows 95 and Windows NT. 1. Add an entry in the ARP table that assigns an IP address to the Ethernet address of the PocketPrintServer. To do this, use the "arp" command. arp -s temp Example: arp -s 192.168.42.24 00:02:16:00:00:01 temp 2. Start a continuous "ping" to the PocketPrintServer. ping Example: ping 192.168.42.24 On some systems, this may require an additional parameter. Some implementations of "ping" only send out one "ping" packet which could get lost in transit. Check your system documentation for more information. 3. Connect power to the PocketPrintServer. The PocketPrintServer will "glean" its IP address from the "ping" packet. This IP address will remain in effect until the PocketPrintServer is power cycled or reset. Therefore, a permanent IP address should be assigned by running the ExtendView TCP/IP utility or via "telnet".
