Question about LaCie Design by F. A. Porsche 160 GB Hard Drive
If the drive came with an installation disk I would recommend you install the disk first prior to connecting your hard drive to your desktop. It's normally plug and play, this means your drive should be recognized the moment you connect it. However, it's important to insert the disk first and carry out the installation. What version of windows are you using? You can also check out the minimum system requirements that shows on the box.
If the software in the disk is installed and you still have the problem , then go to control panel and click [Add Device] icon and just follow the steps .
If that didn't solve the problem , then on desktop go to my computer and click right mouse and go to properties , there click on system . on system click on [device management] , there you'll find all hardware devices that are already installed on your system . just check if your external hard drive existed or not . if not , then try again the above steps after you uninstall the software of your hard drive .
good luck .

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just 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,
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
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps you
