SOURCE: Lacie Desktop Hard Disk beeps when connected

No much help I can give, when an hard drive beeps it has motor error or head error, the disk hardwar is faulty, and you are not able to recover anything from the disk.

A safe data recovery can only be performed by specialized companies on a facility called clean room, where dust is completely removed from the room using a vacuum.

The data recovery using this kind of equipment does not cost less than $800.

SOURCE: Hi My hard drive lacie minimus

If your computer or laptop has a problem detecting a USBhard drive or a USB device, and another computer can detect it, then theproblem could be a RF interference problem. Try using an USB cable that is a shielded USB cable (ie. AnUSB cable that has a clear plastic covering and you can see a metallic weavewhich covers the wires) OR a USB cable that has a Ferrite core attached to theUSB cable (the ferrite core is a cylindrical object approximately 30mm long X15mm diameter and it is attached to the USB cable near the connector).

SOURCE: 2 tb lacie minimus hard drive stopped working

They don't work forever. As you have a power light, it may be worth taking out of the case and trying in a different case. You may be lucky.

One thing you could try is take the drive out of the housing and place it inside your computer.

My cpu won't recognize my LACIE Minimus Drive. I have no Setup Assistant and I need the info locked on the drive. What do I do?


Go download EASEUS Partition Master 5.8.1 Home Edition (free). I've found it very useful to check and often repair drives that won't mount.

No longer recognised by laptop


that is a common noise when your HD just failed it can be internal or external drive most of them work the same way, there is 2 metal readers that hover on top of the actual disks to read the information. Those readers get stuck (beeping noise) or keep going back and forward trying to read (that is the clicking noise) a way to try to fix the problem (it works sometimes) is replacing the circuit board attached to the hard drive (inside the metal enclosure) and you have to find one with the same characteristics as the one you have now. sometimes when we really need to recover the information we try that and it may, may not work

if it works for you, don't forget to rate me


thx

Cannot find the lacie driver on my mac


Chances are the drive is bad. Try taking it to another computer- if it doesn't work there, then the prognosis is poor. Data recovery services are available, but pricey.

Lacie Drive making awful noise!


Lacie D2 drives in my experience are infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a blue light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure. If the drive is grinding like you say, most likely the disk is physically damaged. If this is something you experience often, maybe you should consider power conditioners. if the drive is being moved around alot, you should be gentle with it in transit. Drive enclosures, look rugged and have flashy lights and metal enclosures, but should be treated like babies. Drives are feircely sensitive. They should be padded, kept away from magnets, and treated like laptops. Hope this helps.
