External Hard drive clicking sound and unable to view contents of


First check the LaCie power supply. I have a D2 HARD DISK EXTREME 250GB model 300770 that had this exact problem. I swapped out the power supply for the higher wattage unit from LaCie and presto, the drive functioned properly. Not saying this will fix your problem but I have personally had this exact problem. If not take the drive and mount it in a PC IDE/EIDE disk slot and see if you can mount the drive and recover your data (points to LaCie controller problem). Note opening the drive invalidates your LaCie warranty. Also note the warranty on my drive was one years and had long since passed. If that does not work, your last alternative it to use a disk data recovery service but that is big $$$$s. Bon Chance!

Lacie drive won't mount


I solved the problem. It was a power supply problem. It seems after searching boards on the net, this is a common problem with the lacie hard drives. Just replace the power if your hard drive is clicking and not mounting. I think many people must be throwing the drives away thinking they are lost when it is just the power supply. Try this first before trashing it or spending a lot of money on data recovery programs/

Lacie 1000gb external drive


I own a Lacie product that does the same thing. It uses firewire but it was clicking a few times and then would not display as a drive. I moved to another computer (with a different firewire card) and it worked. I decided that the firewire card was the issue at the time, but the card still read other devices like digital video camera. I know you are using the USB 2.0 cable. Can you try your drive on a different computer? That would narrow the possible solutions down.
