Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
Lacie External USB 2.0 500 GB 7200 RPM
Drive won't mount on Mac screen. the drive makes a slow clicking sound and with it the orange/green light flickers at the same time between orange and yellow.
there is still plenty of disc space and I noticed it was slowing the computers down recently so ran a Utility Disk Check and all was reported fine with ALL of my disks, including this one.
Now I cant mount it and it makes a click sound. Any clues as to what the prob is? I need to the data of it as this was my back-up disc!
A power supply failure can cause this; I've just been through it myself. If you have access to another LaCie drive, try its power supply on the "failed" one and see if it works.

Very good suggestion on switching power adapter. My hard drive is back on business! I wasn't panicking about my data cause I actually back it up onto two separate external hard drives. So, if one dies, the other still available. I'd highly recommend folks to do the same. Your data is worth every single penny you can spend on another hard drive.

Same problem with my LaCie. I unplugged the power from another LaCie, put it in the one I thought was bad and YAHOO, my drive is back. This was my backup drive, so I am ECSTATIC. Thank you for posting the suggestions!!!!!! Now I just need to figure out how to get both LaCies operational at the same time.
