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
the beeps are post during
post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first
transferred to the hard disk,and remains active until turned off. make sure
that your RAM is securely seatedjust replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that
windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work
fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending
or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable, check the USB leads that
attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are
securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a
lot of unforeseen problems hope this helps
when the green light on the power supply goes off or starts flashing when you plug it into the LaCie drive, there is a failure at the level of the internal electronic components. Either only on the interface, or on both the interface and one/both of the hard drive.
Usually, replacing the interface would solve this, but before doing so make sure that the internal hard drives electronic boards do not have any failure else they will cook your new interface. It is advised to consult someone skilled in electronics to inspect the internal components.
1. the usb connector in the PC may have a broken board contact needs soldering or replacement. 2. there may be a broken USB cord to the external usb drive 3. the electronic controller in the USB case may not be working. 4. A new case may be needed with a new controller.
It sounds like the RAID controller in the LAcie drive may have failed. When this happens generally the data on the drive is left intact but you will require a new casing for the drives and the help of a data recovery pro to get the files off before you can re-initialize the set. Unfortunately all the good free/cheap utilities work only on single drives so you will need the help of a pro with high level software and additional equipment to retrieve the files.
If you are in North America I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery, they're listed in the FixYa service database for most US states. If you're outside North America, post your location and I will help you find an appropriate service.
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.
Not sure if this is the exact same issue, but I couldn't 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.
