Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
If the hard drive is beeping, that means that it is damaged.
You can follow a general troubleshooting here, but it may not help:The computer does not see my drive anymore
Troubleshooting is for WD disk, but it is the same on your Lacie.
If the beeping is coming from the board at the bottom of the hard disk drive, inside the Lacie, then the disk is usually not repairable.
The internal hard drive must be replaced and the data will be lost.
The only definitive test is removing the hard drive, observing its behaviour , and eventually testing it on a different enclosure.
If when opening the case, the drive itself is clicking and beeping, then the hard drive heads are broken. If it is beeping with no sound, then it is a broken hard disk motor.
In both situation the data can only be recovered using a special facility (clean room). Recovery is expensive.
Try first following general troubleshooting. Also call Lacie at the number listed on the owners manual to see if they can cover part or all the repair.
If the hard drive is beeping, usually you have lost the data inside the hard drive.
