    Same Prob. With Acomdata OnDaGo 120Gb USB2.0/FireWire Combo External. It seems to work fine when plugged into any Desktop. Recent problem. The 'Safty Remove Hardware' Icon even appears in my Taskbar, but I cannot access the dialog box by Double-Clicking or right-clicking on the icon. Drive does not appear in My Computer, cannot navigate to it by manually typing in it's (typical) drive letter. There are no drivers, Please Help!

I used my Lacie 160GB Mobile Disk from morning to evening on my Dell Latitude D610 Laptop, until evening when my younger brother came home from work, he demands to copy some movies from my Lacie 160GB...


This happened because your brother's computer is infected with a virus or otherwise corrupted. Take the drive and both computers to a local tech to further diagnose the problem and that tech can probably recover your files. I think your brother should pay for the repairs - his computer has some malware that may have overwritten your files. This is why you should do two things - first, always have two kinds of backups - copy vital files to a usb memory stick, and second, don't lend anyone any device you plug into your computer - that is how viruses are spread.

Lacie 300790 that my Mac won't recognize


the Mac may not recognize it if it is formatted with NTFS. I believ most Macs can read FAT32 and other formats but not NTFS. You could hook the drive up to a modern PC, transfer the files there for a while, format the external drive to FAT32 and copy the files back to the drive. The Mac shold read them now,
