Accidentally reformatted now data inaccessable


I'm afraid you've lost all of your data. Next time use a separate External USB Hard Drive or a USB Flash Drive for that kind of process. But, go back with the drive to the original desktop and see, maybe everything is still there and the other PC did not see it/touch it, hope so. Good luck.

My laptop doesn't recognize Lacie Rikiki Go 1TB. I have USB 2.0; and I couldn't find the drive in the Computer folder. Please help.


Hello roblau99:
First lets try this. Shutdown your laptop and reboot. Once your up and running, plug in your portable hard drive. You might try a different USB port. If windows doesn't let you know its there then you need to look for it by going into your administration tools menu. Of course this depends on what version of windows your are running, if it is windows.
Maybe you can answer this? Have you been disconnecting that hard drive without telling windows you are going to disconnect it first? If the answer is yes you may have corrupted that drive which is why windows is not recognizing it.
Good Luck and just let me know if you need more help.
Sincerely, Peter N.

Lacie icon not showing up on my desktop


Try disconnecting the usb cable from the drive and take the drive to a quiet place.

Power up the drive and put your ear next to it. Listen for the internal disk to speed up and then click (which means it's ready). At this point you should have a solid blue LED on the enclosure.

If not, either the disk is bad, the enclosure's controller is bad, or the external power brick is bad (put your ear next to the power brick and if you hear a faint clicking sound, the power brick is bad and you can order a new one from LaCie for about $16.00.

You rate will be much appreciated!

My computer is not recognizing my LaCie external hardrive


First cehck whether your computer is able to recoznize other USB storage devices or not. If you see that it is not recoznizing other USB storage devices. Then you need go to your Boot Up screen, the screen that opens when you restart your PC.

Then go to the USB section and enable USB drive.

If this also does not resolve your problem, then try installing USB drivers on your PC, You can install them from the website : http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/usb2-driver.html

I hope this resolves your problem.

My computer has stopped recognising the driver for a 500gb Lacie Premier Multimedia Hard disk. It appears as 'Unknown device". how do i locate and replace the driver.


Most USB accessories do not get recognized well when plugged in before startin the computer. The exception seems to be mice. USB hadr drives and flash drives specially seem to have this problem. I always use the disconnect icon in the system tray to disconnect before shutdown and plug them in after windows has stabilized. I even gets worse if you use a USB hub. Some devices will not be recognized when attached to a hub.

Hello, I have a LaCie 250GB Hard Drive and it´s not being recognized by my PC. I have Windows XP SP3. What should I do?


All brand-new hard drives are sold unformatted and thus don't show up in Windows until they've gone through the formatting process. To get up and running, connect the drive, boot your PC, and at the Windows desktop right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage. Click Disk Management in the left-hand tree, and every drive connected to your system will show up. Simply right-click your new drive and select New Partition. Then follow the steps to get your drive up and running.

Lacie Hard drive not recognized


If your computer recognized the hard drive before you have installed your last operating sistem(s) that can be the problem. Your operating sistem or BIOS is not seeing your hard drive any more. Installing a new operating sistem is going to solve your problem but try another one, not the operating sistem you used until now.

Computer will not boot with Lacie Desktop Hard Disk connected.


You can enter the bios on bootup by pressing a special key to force your computer to go into BIOS mode. What key this is varies by computer, often it is F8, F10, sometines F11. Anyway, use the key for your computer, and change to boot modus to not first boot from USB.

Recognized - but no mount


Don't know about the MAC part, but an I/O error implies that the either the source file cannot be read or the destination drive will not write. This is usually an indicator of a bad HDD. To check, I would attempt to connect the external drive to another computer. If it still gives the same indication, contact the drive manufacturer about data recovery recommendations

Can't access my lacie external hard drive


I would first plug it in to a different PC, this will tell you if the problem is the Lacie or Windows Vista.
if it works on a different PC then remove it from Device manager or go to the Lacie website for Vista updates.

If it does not work on a different PC then there are 3 possibilities
1. the drive got cleared data lost
2. the enclosure is bad (I would bet on this)
3. the drive is bad

purchase a USB enclosure, remove the drive and install it in the new enclosure plug in and test.

Hope this helps
thanks for rating
