Conect your harddisk to computer whch has windows xp.
Then go to start emnu then type in run 'cmd"

then you can see command propmt.
Then go to your external drive letter like f:
then type 'chkdsk /r"
then pres "y'
then it fix error on hardisk.
Aslo you can format it .
Just take backup of data which you need then right clik on drive licon and format it.then it works fine.

hi.
maybe problem is caused by your Power supply.
so i recommend you to do these:
1- remove the main hard drive and only connect "250GB lacie porsche hard drive".
and see is it recognized or not.
2- go to the bios (with pressing "delete key" at start of turning on) and navigate to power center.
then enable power saving mode.

Strange noises, disk won't fully spin or start up...


Your AC adapter is "dying", and must be replaced.
Is it still under "warranty", i.e., you contact LaCie,
get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) number,
they ship you a new adapter. If you ship them the old adapter,
within a week, they will _not_ charge your credit-card the $30.

LaCie 250Gb drive does not power up


It's the power supply connection in the HD case has failed. Try the HD in another case (if you have one handy) to check whether this is the problem. If so, find a replacement case.

Lacie hd problem


This is a pretty old thread, but I just figured out the work-around for my Lacie drive with the same symptoms. I took the Lacie case apart to find a pretty standard 3.5" Seagate Barracuda drive inside the case. If you pull the actual hard drive out of the box, you can either purchase a new external hard drive adapter box ($30-80) or install it into a tower computer. I installed it into an older G3 tower and it mounted right up. I decided it wasn't worth investing in a six year old hard drive, so I will be purchasing a new drive and pulling the data off the old one.

Lacie d2 HD Quadra 250gb


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.


Hope this helps.

Lacie lost evrything and is now clicking


Not without a clean sterile environment. Exposing the drive to room temperture and environment can damage the internal platters. i am willing to bet it the drive as well, but the clicking sounds like a bad drive arm, and continual attempts to use it may make the drive arm tear into the platters.
