Just take the hard drive out the caddy and use it in another caddy. It will be easier and cheaper than fixing the caddy.

Can't find hard drive on computer anymore. Blue light constantly blinks on Lacie


My LaCie drive was not showing up on my Mac, and making a soft clicking sound ....I thought i was in for expensive data recovery and worse...But I met a guy who told me that La Cie have had a lot of trouble with their POWER SUPPLY and that i should try their customer service. I did, and after a round iof idiotic scripted replies I got to a smart CSR who sent me a NEW power supply. Hey Presto! The drive is back and working perfectly, no data lost!!!

My Mac suddenly cannot find my Lacie external storage device. I have turned off, unplugged, restarted... etc. and it is still not finding it. The Lacie seems to be on, at least the blue light is...


A continuous flashing light on a Lacie drive is a notification of a problem. I do wonder if the light is flashing the same if the drive is plugged in to the Mac or unplugged.

Lacie external drives tend to have power-supplies which become weak/bad. Most users replace the supply and it will work again for awhile until the supply dies again. Try bringing the drive to a retail dealer with Lacie drives -ask them if you can just test your drive with another power-supply (if you do not have another). You can also try calling Lacie, it's always slightly possible they will be aware of this problem.

Alternately, IF the light is only flashing when the drive is plugged-in to the computer, try using a different USB or Firewire cable.

Blue light on Lacie Drive blinks.


Hello,

I have seen the power adapters go out on the Lacie external drives and that causes the light to flash. You can check the voltages coming out of the adapter with a multimeter if you have one available. The voltages should be 5 and 12 volts. If you don't get that then the adapter is bad, you can contact Lacie about a replacement adapter or get a generic case and swap your drive to it. If you need a replacement case I have a link to more information about the one we use inshop at www.ccl-la.com

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

LaCie drive won't turn on (blue light doesn't go on)


I doubt your hard drive is dead, even if your HD was dead the blue light would go one. It has to be the internal controller.. Your best bet is to get a HD enclosure and put your old drive in there. I've burned through 3 Lacie cases, all with similar problems..

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.
