How can I format an external lacie drive to mount on both a PC and a MAC without partitioning


You can not use the drive on both systems. It has to be formatted for one or the other. To transfer your files, I would either backup your files to CD's/DVD's or try to network your Mac and PC, then just dump your files to a share folder of some sort.

The click comes from the reading head of the hdd, the beep comes from the pc when encounters an error. If the power source of the hdd hasn't been specifically designed to support both voltages, when you plugged it in for the first time it fried. It and all the data on it are gone.

Lacie 300790 that my Mac won't recognize


the Mac may not recognize it if it is formatted with NTFS. I believ most Macs can read FAT32 and other formats but not NTFS. You could hook the drive up to a modern PC, transfer the files there for a while, format the external drive to FAT32 and copy the files back to the drive. The Mac shold read them now,

Lacie extern. hard drive is recognized, but I can't access files


Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My lacie external drive cannot be located even though it is connected to my macbook. i can connect it to a PC with no problem but all tiff files are mac based so cannot open them in the PC. What should I...


Hook your drive back to your PC. Right click on it and check 'properties'. In the box that pops up if it says file system NFTS you are out of luck as that is a non mac compatable file system. If it says FAT32 it should be working on your Mac. If it says NFTS you'll need to transfer the files onto the PC reformat the drive using the LaCie software to FAT32 (the only file system that both Mac and PC can use) then transfer the files back to the external drive. Reformatting erases everything on the drive so don't forget to transfer the files first! I can place Tiff files into Adobe products on my PC so I'm not sure what you mean by Mac format tiff???

Drive Shredded


Open Administrative tools, Computer management applet; under storage, disk management. You will probably need to partition and reformat. If this drive is used only on XP machines, then format NTFS, otherwise FAT32.
