Question about LaCie 500GB d2 Quadra 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
My Lacie has recently started making a werring and clicking noise and not backing up. It also ejects itself off my power book . I have tried taking the lead out of my power book and re plugging it in but is now not recognising the lacie at all and when I try to back up maunally a note pops up to say there is no disk available to do this this. It is only 2 yrs old with a lot of spare disk space available. Any Ideas ???

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
if this fails to fix the problem
check usb leads for secure dust free seating
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps
