One of the circuits in the back up drive failed. Your options are to send to to the manufacturer for possible repair or you can try removing the drive unit, that is actually what is inside that, and putting it in a portable case, available from Best Buy for about 39.99, and continue to use the device. or take it as a lose of data and get a new back up drive.

Can a lacie rugged external hard drive be connect to a macbook -not macbook pro?


Yes - If the unit is USB it will work with any computer that has a USB port - if hooked up to any Mac though it normally will be formatted for use only with other Mac's. You can usually specify what type of filesystem you want to use when you have it hooked up.

It's possible to clone to this drive, but over the USB interface, it will be very slow. Firewire would be faster. It's also possible to boot from it, but again, it will be slower than an internal. What you've described, however, IS possible.

the problem is that your lacie drive operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) under USB which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple mac is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac if you wish to use it via the USB connection.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-

download and install the software then restart your mac.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


I was able to dig this up.
Reference: http://4sysops.com/archives/tip-how-to-install-and-uninstall-a-program-in-safe-mode/

Run Windows in safe mode.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\
Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.

Sorry mate... too many limitations on

It seems the new macbook pro does not support the firewire connector. Is there a different wire available? It looks like the macbook pro has a firewire connection but it is much smaller than the original...


The problem lies in your cable!

The new macbook pro still uses firewire and will be compatable with your drive. It just uses a 4-pin instead of a 6-pin connector. You can get an adapter or new cable that goes from 6 to 4-pins.

They did take away firewire from the new line of plain macbooks though (shakes fist at steve jobs)
