Question about LaCie (300770) 250 GB Hard Drive
I've got important files on my hd (less than 2 months old) and all of a sudden the blue light is blinking and will not mount onto my powerbook g4 or imac 2.0ghz duo intel. Is there anyway I can save the files on the HD? What can I do to get this working again.
and does anyone know why this happened?
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.

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
if this fails to fix the problem
check usb leads for secure dust free seating
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps
