Here's two suggestions. (If your using Mac OS X 10.x)
Make sure external hard drives are to be shown by clicking "Finder" in the menu bar then "Preferences" and under the "Sidebar" section selecting "External Disks".
Also check that the hard drive is mounting by opening "Disk Utility" by first opening the "Applications" folder then the "Utilities" folder and double clicking "Disk Utility" and in the left sidebar checking to see if your external hard drive is listed as one of the mounted drives. Hope this helps, don't forget to comment/vote if this helped. Thank you.

Lacie External Drive won't turn on (blue Light doesn't go on)


Inside the LaCie D2 250GB (300770) external harddrive's case, is a 250GB IDE (PATA) harddrive that is 3.5 inches across in width.

A desktop computer sized harddrive. (May be a Western Digital WD25000JB)

The harddrive plugs into a small circuit board, (Bridge board), and the circuit board has a USB port on it.

Using this Western Digital Passport for an example,

http://www.xbitlabs.com/misc/picture/?src=/images/storage/wd-passport-250gb/p3.jpg&1=1

Scroll down to the second photo, and left-click on it. The case of the external harddrive is shown open.
Inside is a 2.5 inch laptop sized harddrive.
An aluminum tape strip covers the small circuit board, attached at the back of the harddrive.

The second photo down on this page, shows you the small interface circuit board, that the harddrive plugs into, with the aluminum tape removed.

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/storage/display/wd-passport-250gb_2.html

(Another design has wires coming from the small circuit board, to an interface the harddrive plugs into )

It is this small circuit board that goes bad in a LaCie. QUITE common.

Solution?

Simple.
1) Obtain a 3.5 inch IDE external enclosure
2) Remove the 3.5 IDE harddrive from the LaCie's case.
3) Install the harddrive out of the LaCie into the external 3.5 IDE enclosure.

An example of a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

I have mounted a new 40GB on my imac G3 and wanted to install OS ssw 9.0.4 on it, but at start up from the CD, it booth up to where it suposed to show the os type having this icon like a human faced pc at...


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

The "human face" icon is an indication that your hard drive is not being recognized by your iMac G3 because the hard drive is not formatted to read the Mac OS 9 software.

What you need to do is initialize your hard drive so you can
it can read the Mac OS 9.0.4 software.

Below, I have provided a link with simple steps to properly initialize (format) your 40GB hard drive

Initializing a hard disk, cartridge, or optical disk

Follow these steps and you will be able to successfully install Mac OS 9.0.4 to your Mac G3 hard drive.

I hope this helps.

Will erasing my LaCie ext HD impact any files on my Mac Book?


It will only effect thoes stores on the external harddrive. You will have to check the contents of the LaCie drive and see if it has any files you typically access from your Mac Book. Other then that no it will not effect files stored on your Mac Books drive.

LaCie 500 GB hard Drive - does not register on my desktop


if it is a USB (or you have low disc space), it does take longer to show up on desktop and patience is required... on my iBook it takes over a minute for my Brick to show up... Whether it is USB or firewire, do try another cord (I had similar problem with my lacie firewire external... I used a different firewire cord and all was fine. If you have tried these already, I hope you find the answer... good luck
