Go for it. There's a chance the internal drive will be PATA (IDE) but odds are good it's a SATA drive with standard connections.

Make sure your PC has connections for SATA drives, and you'll need to buy a SATA cable since the one in the LaCIE case won't connect from your drive to your motherboard.

Hard drive fell down and since then is not reckognized


Hi ,
Probably electronic parts or just a connection are damaged .
I' m afraid you will have to open box ( can' t be used back ) and test the hdd in another box or by connecting it inside a desktop.

Check your BIOS > StartUp sequence
Maybe the USB boot option has much higher priority that HDD boot. Try exchanging their priority and then reboot, with your external HD connected to pc.

LaCie 2d 500GB isnt recognized


Has the drive been formatted? Before using a hdd it has to be formatted. In Windows XP you have choices of FAT 32 or NTFS format. Hope this helps.

No external drive icon on desk top


This happened to me as well - i have been reading that it could be the power supply adaptor. If you can try another one - it might solve the problem. The adaptors seem to either be faulty or made to stop working. Great news for us the consumer!!
