Question about LaCie (300770) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Lacie edmini 250 GB will not power up

I have had this unit for about 5years without bother, until now that is.. the power cord seems fine and iluminates the transformer light, but when switching on at the main unit ie. the blue button it flashes on for a brief second before going out. There is no activity from the fan or hard drive motor, other than this quick flash of light each time its pressed, it seems quite dead. I use this drive to back up all my music and photos and would be horrified to loose all this data which was the main reason for buying it. Is there anything you can suggest before I try to locate a lacie repair centre in the uk.

    I have just received a reply solution from coldsilver20 which I am greateful for as it gives hope that the data is not lost, but I omitted to mention that our househould only uses laptops hense why we use this ethernet hard drive as a shared backup drive.

Sounds like a faulty power circuit within the external housing. remove all screws and the drive from its housing. you now hold in your hand an internal hdd. remove all jumpers, if any are present, and install this drive on the same cable as your master hdd. now when u boot up to my computer window, you will see two hdd named C: and D:

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
Please leave feedback for this answer, thanks.

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.)

Dead hard drive


Try unplugging the usb connector and plugging it back in. Your pc shouls recognize the installed component automatically. Also, some external hard drives work like normal pc's do: hold the power button in longer until something happens. Hope this helps.

If the green light on your LaCie power supply does not light, you likely have a bad power supply. You can buy a new one from LaCie. If you are purchasing a new power supply from LaCie ask for the higher wattage unit. LaCie upgraded this a while back.
