LaCie silverscreen Utilities CD-ROM

I have a LaCie silverscreen without CD-ROM & instructions. I unfortunately deleted the hidden operating files on the hard drive enabling it to play on my TV. I am unable to recover these files and cannot find anywhere to download the LaCie silverscreen Utilities CD-ROM. Can anyone recommend where I can find the appropriate drivers or give me a copy?

The OS is hidden in memory, you can clear all files off the machine and it will still work.

The only requirements are the 4 folders:

That's it!

New firmware can be found at

You'll need data recovery to fix this problem. If the hard drive makes broken sounds there is a hardware problem. You can try to do data recovery yourself, there is some good content on youtube. If you want somebody else to do it for you there is Data Recovery NYC. Also there is good informaation on logic board repairs on

Lacie Silverscreen 80Gb Drive not recognised by My Dual Processor PC

Sorry for the late reply, but it may help someone else with the same problem.

Are you using a USB2 port, perhaps it's may not be getting enough power. In the orginal Lacie box was a double USB dongle - it allows you to take the power from two USB ports and send them to the Silverscreen, if the SScreen was getting quite enough power.

Or buy a double USB power cable (like:

Otherwise remove the 2.5" disk (remove two screws, & gently pull out) and use a caddy to check the HD disk is still working.

Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

did these movies come from licensed sources, by chance? You may be running into a simple issue of licenses not transfering from your HD/computer to the storage unit.

If you can use software to encapsulate the VOB file(s) in an ISO, it will play them in order.

You can not see DVDs in "unpacked" mode (at least not satisfactory), you have to have them in iso format. The firmware is not a problem, the new firmware brings support for more HD drives only.

I reccomend connecting you computer directly to your tv, depending on which mac you have. DVI or vga. I'm sure the manufacterer does as well. The files maybe in a codec your tv does not compute.
