Value of the memory capacitor on the PCB of the LACIE EDmini v2


If the voltage and the farads are higher than the original it won't make any difference what you put in. They are not much greater than 47uf, if you think it's 10uf than put anything above that in. It will really depends on the physical size of the replacement. Get one they same size as the one that's gone and you can't really go wrong.

I owned one just like this and the power supply failed at about 1 year. It turns out it's a fairly common problem. Since you have the device open, does the controlboard/motherboard look burnt at all?
If it is not damaged, you may be able to buy a replacement power supply here: http://www.lacie.com/products/range.htm?id=10030
If it is damanged, then you may still be under manufacturer warranty, contact Lacie here: 503-844-4503 sales@lacie.com

Just contact www.lacie.com great support. there answer for my drive was to upgrade the drive version and to reboot the drive. Maybe the last thing is enough. For me it worked.

If necessary update driver http://www.lacie.com/nl/support/drivers/driver.htm?id=10156

Follow the procedure below to reset the Network Space to factory defaults:
  1. Move the power switch to the OFF position. Wait for the drive to shut down.
  2. Turn ON the drive.
  3. Within about 3 seconds, flip the switch OFF and On several times.
  4. Immediately turn it ON
If the light flashes quickly, the unit is resetting itself. Attempt to connect to the drive again after about 1 minute using the default username and password (by default, they are both admin.)

No access to the disk, same clicking sound + constant light


It may not be getting enough power. Is there an external power supply you can plug in or another USB connector that can be plugged in to another port?

Lacie 500gb external drive


The disks inside the HD are not spining. The creaking noise is the HD trying to start. Next time when it does start transfer all the files ASAP cause your drive is about to die.

Powering up my Lacie ethernet disk 250


When I had this problem it turned out to be the power supply unit. Lacie replaced it - if you are out of warranty you can buy them for about £25 - and this solved the problem.
