Hi

u can also try to see if u can find it in control panel--> administrative tools--> computer management--> storage--> disk management.....
if it is there it will be highlighted black and marked as unallocated right click on it and create a new partition after that it will automatically format itself

enjoy

New hard drives are "Raw" and have to be formated for any Operating system to recognize it. If the Hard drive is installed I would suggest, if you have a Win98 cd, boot from that, select with cd rom support, at the prompt type in fdisk, Fdisk will display all fixed disks present, select your new HD and configure it, with large disk support, etc.

If you don't have a win98cd download GParted live cd and burn on cd. and boot with that it will display all hard drives and you can select your new HD and format it to fat 32 or ntfs or linux ext partitions/swap files.

I bought today a lacie hard disk 500GB and instead of 500GB has only 9.99 MB space.What's the problem?


Sounds like your have a 9.99mb partition on your drive with the rest being free space.

If you are running windows goto the Computer Management program and check under storage> disk management to see if your 500gb drive is there. if it is delete the existing partitions and reformat the entire disk to NTFS

Hi if I connect my lacie on the laptop it doesn't


That's why it's called 'Plug and Pray.'
Try plugging in the drive while your laptop is off, then power it up.
Watch the lower right quadrant of the Desktop to see if Windows pops up a box that says 'found new hardware.' If it does, Win may have a driver in its library and install it.

Lacie do not start


If it still is under warranty, then exercise the warranty, and get it repaired/replaced.

If it's out-of-warranty, then disassemble the case, and disconnect the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if the disk-drive still works.

If it's dead, it's dead, unless you pay mega-dollars to a professional "Data Recovery Service" to rescue your files.

If it is dead, then buy another disk-drive that is compatible with that USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and reassemble the unit, and you'll have a brand-new external drive that you can use.

Lacie Desktop Hard Disk beeps when connected


No much help I can give, when an hard drive beeps it has motor error or head error, the disk hardwar is faulty, and you are not able to recover anything from the disk.

A safe data recovery can only be performed by specialized companies on a facility called clean room, where dust is completely removed from the room using a vacuum.

The data recovery using this kind of equipment does not cost less than $800.

LaCie HD won't show up on Mac desktop, quit showing up yesterday


Hello! Had the same problem - go onto the Lacie official website. Select whatever type of drive that it is you have, and simply go onto the software update page. I literally downloaded the desktop manager (I own the Sam Hecht Little Disk) and it appeared! Good luck
