I bought today a lacie hard disk 500GB and instead of 500GB has only 9.99 MB space.What's the problem?


Sounds like your have a 9.99mb partition on your drive with the rest being free space.

If you are running windows goto the Computer Management program and check under storage> disk management to see if your 500gb drive is there. if it is delete the existing partitions and reformat the entire disk to NTFS

Lacie do not start


If it still is under warranty, then exercise the warranty, and get it repaired/replaced.

If it's out-of-warranty, then disassemble the case, and disconnect the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if the disk-drive still works.

If it's dead, it's dead, unless you pay mega-dollars to a professional "Data Recovery Service" to rescue your files.

If it is dead, then buy another disk-drive that is compatible with that USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and reassemble the unit, and you'll have a brand-new external drive that you can use.

LaCie 500GB external will not show up on mac desktop. Blue light on, whirrs as if working but no icon on desktop (not mounted)


Did you format the drive using Disk Utility? Open "disk utility" from the dock icon or applications/utilities folder. Click the drive name on the left side of the disk utility window. click the "partition" tab in the window, next click the "options" tab and select GUID Partition scheme, or any Mac compatible scheme, read each explanation of the schemes. Name and resize your partitions, click apply. This is how it works running Leopard, not positive if the same applies to Tiger. I hope this helps you
