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.

SOURCE: Hi there my Lacie 500GB
Try disconnecting the firewire/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.

Which model of G-DRIVE do you have? Does it unmount randomly or exhibit any other behavior? Have you tried rebuilding the directory with DiskWarrior? Sometimes a damaged directory can cause issues that you are seeing. Please let me know if you have any questions.
