Lacie 500g wont show up on desktop


Hi, I have not read the other advice you have tried but what I can tell you is that "vary many" people have the same problem with these Lacie 500g drives. The only solution that has been found to work is unfortunatly returning it to Lacie for repair. Most other options seems to either not fix the problem or it fixes the drive for a short while and then the problem returns. :(

Remove the hard drive from the lacie box and plug it in directly to your computer to see if the drive is now recognized. If it is the issue is with the lacie box electronics. If still not recognized with a direct connection to computer, see if the bios sees it. If not, the logic board on hard drive is fubar and you have a serious recovery problem.

My 500G Lacie external drive is no longer detected by windows. Sometimes it will say the USB port or device is mulfuction. Sometimes it does not detect it at all.


Does this happen in several computers? If it does, then the interface is probably damaged, in which case you could (at your own risk) disassemble the drive and install the hard drive inside a desktop computer to access your data., since theres a standard SATA hard drive inside.

Lacie 300790 that my Mac won't recognize


the Mac may not recognize it if it is formatted with NTFS. I believ most Macs can read FAT32 and other formats but not NTFS. You could hook the drive up to a modern PC, transfer the files there for a while, format the external drive to FAT32 and copy the files back to the drive. The Mac shold read them now,

Lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised


I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK

Try to connect to another computer, and see if it recognizes the drive. If Not, you can dismantle LaCie and take the disk out.

Connecto your disk to another external box (USB or Firewire) so you can have access to you data.

My Lacie 500GB drive shuts my laptop down when i connect it.


similar issue: my notebook hangs instead of restarting. i thought its the usb2.0 of my rather old(3yr) notebook. but i bought a cheap usb box for my old 120G hdd and it plug-n-play like a charm on the same old notebook/same usb port. quite frustrated with this Lacie 500G beast.

so i ended up backing up my notebook using the 1-click backup of Lacie but using my old 120G hdd instead of the new Lacie500G. but then, search as i would through the Lacie documentation, i see no mention of how to restore the data... still looking...

Can't access my lacie external hard drive


I would first plug it in to a different PC, this will tell you if the problem is the Lacie or Windows Vista.
if it works on a different PC then remove it from Device manager or go to the Lacie website for Vista updates.

If it does not work on a different PC then there are 3 possibilities
1. the drive got cleared data lost
2. the enclosure is bad (I would bet on this)
3. the drive is bad

purchase a USB enclosure, remove the drive and install it in the new enclosure plug in and test.

Hope this helps
thanks for rating
