You can only hope that the drop has dislodged the drive from the internal connections in the case and has not damaged the drive. You'll have to figure out how to get the case apart.

Lacie by stark external hard drive is suddenly not recognised by my computer (always worked until now) and has a permanent red light. Tried all usb ports and restarting computer. Whats wrong?


have you dropped it? it could be any number of disc errors, two of the most common errors are caused by viruses and dropping. try putting the hard drive in the freezer for a day or so in a moisture and static resistant bag. just a possibly remedy, if that doesn't work, try removing the casing on the hd and setting it as a secondary drive after you plug it inside a desktop computer.

Hi there,

Despite the other colors you are getting, the fact that is flashed yellow indicates the yellow light of death. A critical piece of hardware inside your PS3 has failed and it needs to be serviced. I would suggest calling SCEA at 1-800-345-7669.

Whenever I plug the lacie hardrive into my computer nothing happens on the computer but a red light turns on and flashes on the lacie


If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

He may have "unplugged" it before it was ready to be unplug or moved it when the drive was still spinning down.
or -- he must have handled it roughly or dropped it, even a little drop.
I think you need a new one (bf) ... The hard drive may still work... try every different USB port on your computer. If none work, then take it back and plug it into your ex-bf's computer and see if it works. Take your receipt with you.

Let us know ....... what kind of movies....

Hi I am Vortash sorry to say it sounds like you have destroyed the HD , they are really quite delicate and have watch like precision spindles on the drive and the read arm .. An impact such as dropping them usually destroys these spindles and the hard rive is totally useless .
It is doubtful that you will ever be able to read from it again , regards Vortash

Broken USB connection Lacie FA Porsche


You may be able to resolder the USB port, maybe an electronics savy friend with a soldering iron will help you with this. Disassemble it and check if the traces and tabs of the usb port are still intact. If they are it can definitely be soldered. Or you can just put the HDD in a new enclosure, they are dirt cheap. If you want somebody else to do it for you there are services like Data Recovery NYC. Also there is good informaation on logic board repairs on hddguru.com.

Beeping sound


Sounds like the motor got stuck.
Is it melody-like beeping?

Lacie 120GB dropped


If you open it up you will see that the drive is a regular computer drive. You should be able to plug it into a computer as a secondary drive and try to get the data off. But if it's clicking and making noises there may be no hope. Sorry!
