Question about LaCie Big Disk Extreme (300797U) 1000 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have lost the external power supply for my 1TB laCie (300797U). I have another power supply that has physically the right connector, but I'm not sure if the voltages are right. The supply I have is a 4-pin (5V on pin1 and 12V on pin2) connector.

The voltages are right because hard drives use 12volts for the motor drive and 5volts for the digital logic circuits.
The only thing I don't know is the correct voltages for the various pins, there is a possibility it may not suit the LaCie.
This maybe a standard configuration for external USB hard drives, you need to check with LaCie.

Cannot detect the lacie 1tb exreme big disk


Hi there!
Same issue here
Running win XP on my laptop and I have my LaCie NAS on my network and was working fine 'til today.
Issue: unable to access my LaCie NAS
troubleshooting done:1- rebooting NAS 2-power cycling the whole network 3- also tried accessing NAS from a Mac Book (used to be able) 4- nable to ping it by name or by IP
I had one my NAS's shares mapped to Y:, Now I can see the share from my network places but when I go to map network drive the Y: is no more assigned to that share.
My next move would be to re-install the NAS but I want to know and make sure that this will not delete what I have on that NAS.
Thanks to anyone that would jump in and give a hand to a desperate novice in Networking

LaCie 1TB extreme do not start and make strange noise


This is an issue I have seen on more than one occasion. I have two of the BD extreme's and I have found that replacing the power supply seems to have been the issue. I have spoken to Lacie about this but they have not admitted having any issue with the external power supply.

Lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised


I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

May I offer a couple of general ideas you may want to explore:
  • are the lights/indicator lit (or even blinking) on the iomega and the LaCie? If yes, the power supply is ruled out; if blinking indicates possible electronics/hardware problem;
  • try a different cable;
  • try a different suitable port;
  • try one at a time;
  • interchange port connection (if possible);
  • were they unmounted before the physical removal;
  • you may want to reference troubleshooting methods here and/or here (if you haven't done yet).
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
