Question about LaCie d2 Extreme 250GB External with Triple Interface USB 2.0/Firewire 400/800 - 300790U ... Hard Drive
Lacie External harddisc is not visible hi there I am using a Lacie Extreme Bigger disc 1TB. It is connected to a laptop running Windows xp Service pack 3. The disc appears in Disc Utility in the usb dropdown menue as "unknown device" The blue light is on and the disc appears to be spinning without any noise. I think it is either the power supply or the driver. I have tried installing the latest driver update from Lacie but there is no change. thanks for your help don

It's all about the interfaces.
The Quadra has four interfaces: • eSATA • FW 400 • FW 800 • USB 2.0
The triple has all but the eSATA interface listed above.
For doing video work you want a big drive with a fast interface. If you have eSATA available then that's the fastest. If you don't then you're just as well off to go with the triple interface. The FW 800 would be the next fastest, then the USB 2.0, then the FW 400.
Because of the way that data is transferred I believe that when doing video work you would be best served by the FW 400 instead of the USB 2.0 even though the USB is faster I don't believe it is a full duplex communication so the FW 400 is actually better for video.

Hi, Lacie isn't very forthcoming with beep codes but it definitely means one of the two. You can try moving the hard drive into a new enclosure, if it works it was the enclosure, if not the HDD. Hate to say it but warranty on these drives is a moot point the moment unique data is stored on them as you can't even diagnose the problem properly without voiding it and no drive manufacturer will waranty data. If you have no unique data and it's under warranty, send it back. If you have unique data on it that you value, take it to a local computer store and have them move the drive to a new external enclosure and test it. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't, you've confirmed that the HDD is faulty and you will need the help of a data recovery Pro. If the latter is the case, reply by commenting here with your location (country, state city) and I'll recommend a closeby facility for you. Chris

The power adapter must be faulty, replace it with a new one.
if you are on warranty please contact your dealer or lacie directly for warranty support / replacement.

Maybe. If the current disk-drive has an IDE interface, then your 500GB disk-drive already is the largest IDE disk-drive ever produced. Or, if the current disk-drive has a SATA interface, then the sky (or the thickness of your wallet) is the limit.

the first step will be to verify your power supply. When it is plugged to the wall power outlet, it should be silent (no hissing or high pitch noise) and the green light should be on on the power supply.. If it is not the case, replacing it might solve your problems.
Second step is to verify if it is an interface problem. Try using a different port on the drive.
If no success, start Disk Utility and look to the left if you have any mention of a drive of 1TB. If you do, the partition of your drive might be corrupted. You can try running First Aid from Disk utility if its available, else you will need to try a partition repair software or a Data recovery program.
There are a few available that you can get a free copy to see if the data is available before you buy.
