Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
Go to your control panel and then administrative tools, select Computer Management.
Now select Disk Management and expand the window.
Your drive should be listed here, if not then you need to check your computer hardware has not got any issues before proceeding.
If your drive is listed and says healthy then right click on it an select Properties, click Tools and then Error Checking, Check now, tick the two boxes and then Start.
This will attempt to fix most minor / common errors on the drive. It may also ask you to restart which is fine. Allow it to finish its work or you could corrupt the drive. If all went well you should be able to use it normally again.
If you drive was listed but did NOT say healthy then right click and select Format. Choose NTFS as the file system and do not tick any boxes you do NOT want quick format. Again start and let it do its thing. When it is done restart your computer and you should be good to go.
If you still have problems with the drive you might want to look at other areas.
Quick checks of the drive itself can be done by removing it from its enclosure and connecting it directly
to a comuter that has the correct interface. If you can read and use the drive then you know it is not that.
If you cannot use the drive in any way and esp. if you hear clicking or pinging then the drive is almost certainly dead or dying.
