Question about LaCie Big Disk Extreme with Triple Interface - hard drive - 1 TB
LACIE turns on & sounds like it boots up, but is not visible on my laptop. I've tried connecting to other computers, but the result is the same. It seems to run, but cannot be seen.
Unfortunatley this is the classic symptoms of a broken drive. You can try accessing the drive on DOS by using online software. (eg spinrite).
If you get your drive to work copy all the important info onto discs and format this drive.
As i repair PC's this is the most common problem. Hard drives are only guaranteed for 1 to 3 years.
To help you in future
*Defrag your hard drive every month
*Backup and format the drive every year
*And never fill up a drive over 60% ( eg never exceed 60 gig on a 100 gig drive.
These easy steps should stop a hard drive faliure and make it last around 5-10 years.
Hope this helps
