The hard disk inside it has probably died. Take it out of the case and put it in the pc directly - if even now it's not responsive then it's surely dead - junk it. if now you can see it then the electronics if the case are dead - junk it and buy a new external case.

I dont see the drive in my computer


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive 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
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, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
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

Lacie 1tb ext hd. drive does not show in disk


Your external drive has 2 parts, the hard drive, which is just a normal hard drive you would find in any computer, and the usb bridge, which connects the hard drive interface (either ide or usb) to the usb or firewire or esata or whatever. Sounds like one of these are bad. Does the computer see the bridge? it should show up as a mass storage device in device manager and the safely remove usb devices dialog. If not, then get a new enclosure for the drive. These range from 25-100 dollars. If the bridge does show up, take apart the enclosure and pull the drive out and try hooking it up as a second drive in your computer. If it works there, then you need a new enclosure. If not, then you need a new drive.

Deference Lacie d2 Quadra1TB/Lacie big disk ?


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.
