I have a 1TB LaCie 2Big Quadra. It has 2 500GB and runs on RAID 1. I replaced both 500 GB LaCie drives with 1.5 TB LaCie drives, but my computer only recognizes the original 500 GB. I formatted both...


I have the same problem too on my 2big form lacie . If I use 2x 1,5 tera disk in "fast mode" or in "big mode" my disk manager only shows 746 gigs available (it should be at least 2,5 terra).
If I use "safe mode" so my system can see 1,3 tera available, wich is normal for a raid mirror configuration.
I hope to find a solution quickly.

Dell latitude is very slow,any way to speed it up?


There are a couple ways that help quite a bit. The internet is full of hints as well. As a tech Ill tell you the main things that most people miss.
First delete all files and uninstall all programs you do not need. Of course you will want to clear all your internet caches and delete the cookies you don't want.
When you are all done with the general cleaning run the disk defragmenter. Many people forget to do that and as their hard drives get fuller and fuller files get more and more fragmented.
Purchasing a newer much bigger hard drive will make access a little faster especially if it is a faster drive.
Purchasing more ram for the machine will likely help if it is marginal. For instance if you got one of those early Vista machines with 500 megs of ram. Bump that up to two gig and you should see a pretty big difference in Vista. If you have a 64 bit machine try bumping it up to 4 gigs. I like it about 4 gigs these days. 4 gigs of ram is standard for all new HP DV7 laptops.
Another thing that slows Computers is Anti Virus Programs. Do a search online for speed comparisons of the various antivirus programs. Mcaffee and Nortons are serious system hogs. I mostly use the free version of AVG or the paid version of Kaspersky. But even kaspersky is starting to get bloated. Some people dont like Antivir but I find it works reasonably well and is pretty fast.
Of course a virus can really cripple a computer for speed as can spamware.

Trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue


Hello,

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.

Iomega 500 gb hard drive: large file transfers


The default format for the IOMega drive is FAT32. This format will work on all versions of Windows, as well as Mac OS9 and above. Unfortunately, FAT32 can't handle files larger than 4gigs. If you want to use larger files, you're going to have to remove all the files from your IOMega drive and use your computer to format it to NTFS (Windows 2000/XP/Vista) or HFS+ (Mac OS9/X).

Consult your owner's manual for specific details.

Brick connection is not registering


It sounds like that brick fell. All bets are off when a hard drive falls or receives shock. Put your ear to it and see if it is making any strange sounds.

Keep me posted.

Filesize query


It's probably not out of line. A one hour minDV holds about 13.5 gigs. AVI files need a LOT of space. Yes, it will be compressed before it goes to DVD, but compression (also called rendering) usually isn't done during the capture process. How much hard drive space do you have? You probably need more.

Archiving Digital Camcorder Video - Ideal Formats


Let's try to bottomline this. If you want said DVD to play in most players, you'll be encoding the video according to standards. The current DVD is MPEG2. At the current time, most people just have DV camcorders so you don't see the generational loss as you move the video from DV to DVD. At least I don't.
