Question about LaCie (300770) 250 GB Hard Drive
If you remove the drives from the cases then you can connect them via a USB /IDE / SATA adapter to your PC. This is self powering and will allow you full access to the drive so you can retrieve your files. The adpaters a freeely available at most PC stores or via eBay for a few $$ /££/ Euros. I have two fo these and rthey work without any problems.

There is hope for you.
Be careful as hard drives are just that ! They are not flash drives so should be treated with care, no bumps, knocks etc.
It is pretty common for this to happen
Your best bet is to remove the drive from its enclosure and connect it directly to a suitable PC. If the PC is new enough it should have both SATA and IDE connections.
You will need a suitable cable or as a temporary measure you could disconnect a CD ROM drive if it is an IDE connection and use that.
Only do the connections with the PC off !
It may take a little longer to boot the PC in most cases that is normal.
You may also have to check the BIOS to make sure it can see the drive but that is not always the case if you have a SATA card installed.
When you have finished connecting boot the PC.
If all goes well you will be able to see the drive and recover data.
In fact if you can see the drive and get at the information you may want to stop there for a moment.
The fact that you can get at it would indicate that just the enclosure is damaged !
That is a big plus as enclosures are pretty cheap and you can install the drive in a new one and carry on as if it never happened (Phewww)
If however you can see or use the drive at all then the news is not good i am afraid.
Hope its the first case and not the second.
