Re: daisy chain my external hard-drives

I don't think these drives are designed to be daisy chained. This worked for SCSI drives, but not for USB drives.

Harddisk woun't mount

The hard disk inside it has probably died. Take it out of the case and put it in the pc directly - if even now it's not responsive then it's surely dead - junk it. if now you can see it then the electronics if the case are dead - junk it and buy a new external case.

I have 2 1TB G-Drives connected to an intel mac. They will mount independently, but frequently will not mount when daisy chained. Any thoughts?

Try using different cables. Also, try swapping the order of the drives. See if it's a specific drive or if either one in either order does not always work.

Lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised

I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK

La cie hard drive mount issues

I had the same problem and surprisingly, after many attempts to get the drive to mount with different connections, etc., the problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.

check wires connecting them together first, ok?

then, turn off the LaCie, connect to your MacPro, and then turn on the drive..

that should show as a mounted drive.

Don't get it

I notice that you had issues initially installing the drive. Is it possible hat your actions as noted in the link corrupted the HFS+ formatting that was shipped on the drive?

Review this link

If as you noted THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME YOU USED THE DRIVE, you have no data on the drive to loose or recover.

Especially if you believe your actions may have corrupted the formatting of the drive, reformatting may be the appropriate response and could yield a working drive eliminating many return headaches. However if this does not seam reasonable contact with LaCie as to why the drive did not work directly out of the box may be appropriate. (I did confirm in the drive specs that the drive should have been formatted correctly for an apple computer -- windows users need to reformat the drive before they can use it )

I hope this helps
