By SuperDIsk you mean the removable cartridge drive, right?
The drive itself will not show up on your desktop unless there is an actual cartridge in it.
If it doesn't show up even with a cartridge in it, check Finder / Preferences / General / Show these items on the desktop, and make sure External Disks is checked.

The icon for my lacie exyernal hard does not show


Here's two suggestions. (If your using Mac OS X 10.x)
Make sure external hard drives are to be shown by clicking "Finder" in the menu bar then "Preferences" and under the "Sidebar" section selecting "External Disks".
Also check that the hard drive is mounting by opening "Disk Utility" by first opening the "Applications" folder then the "Utilities" folder and double clicking "Disk Utility" and in the left sidebar checking to see if your external hard drive is listed as one of the mounted drives. Hope this helps, don't forget to comment/vote if this helped. Thank you.

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!

Do a system restore. Go to control panel and open it. Once open, click on system maintenance(opens new window) and click on back up restore center (opens new window)and when that window opens, on the left side of the window will be an option to " Repair Windows using System Restore." Click on that. A window may open up asking to continue, click yes and do a system restore back to the date when the "C" drive was showing. Computer should do a restart afterwards.

The most likely solution to this problem is to go to the computer manufacturers website and find the drivers for your flash drive and install them.

Bios says no ide device found (hard frive missing?)


If the BIOS is not detecting your hard drive, then there are two possible suspects here. Could just be your hard drive or it also be your motherboard.

If you have already reseated your hard drive and memory and the symptoms are still the same, then go to the nearest local computer shop that sells HP. Have them try a known-good hard drive on your system. If it works, purchase a new hard drive. If it doesn't work, your mobo needs to be replaced.
