Question about LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini, 500 GB Hard Disk Drive with Gigabit Ethernet & USB 2.0 Interface, 7200 rpm... IDE Hard Drive

1 Answer

Lost Connection Hi. I am having some problems with my Lacie - Ethernet Disk mini - Home Edition. Everything worked perfect till I decided to change the name of my Wireless connection. I had it as 'linksys' and changed it to another name. When I changed it, I stoped seeing my HipServ hard drive and could not connect it anymore. I've tryied to do a ping test, and worked ok, but still couldn't connect. The HipServ Agent neither sees it. So, I thought it had to do with the name that couldn't been changed, and went back to the 'linksys' name. But nothing was solved. I've inserted the instalation CD and when I go to 'Reset Tools', my HipServ is not found. When I press the 'Step 1 - Setup' button, it asks me to format my disk so as to re-configure the disk, but I CAN'T FORMAT! I have too much information there that I can't lost. It is weird since the Format option detects it, but with the Reset Tool no. More over, I've tried connecting a direct ethernet cable between my computer and the disk, but I can't see it, but if I ping it, I have answer. So I please ask you for a very big help. Thanks in advanced, and if you need some other information just usk me, Best Regards, Andy.

Most problems I have had with Lacie NAS have been due to duff power supplies. Seems odd that it should make a difference but it does: the power supply seems to make hte connection hang which  you then can't reset just by turning off hte power.

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

Not turning on.... I turned it off to move its location and now i cant turn it on...Power cable and everything is in place and live, but no joy..


Same problem. Bought a new power supply at extortionate price from Lacie but still no joy. I'm hoping to find a way of converting to a dumb external USB HD.

Lacie ED mini v2 won't start up.


I had the same problem twice, but it was the power adapters each time that were causing the problem. It wasn't the unit itself. Lacie replaced the power adapters and it worked fine.

I have LaCie 500 GB Exernal Hard Drive. I was transferring some data from my computer into the hard drive. The hard drive fell off and stopped working. When i connect it to power, the power light doesn't...


Sounds like the power supply in the external case has gone bad (or going bad)...

If you have another external case, AND the drive itself is not damaged, you can move the drive to an external case.. Alternately, depending on the connection (IDE/SATA) you can move the drive internally to your computer.

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall


Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.

Lacie Ethernet disk mini 500 Gb


I had exactly the same problem, no access to the windows media server - the no space message - and all my users missing from the user tab.

Following up from gogogo123's comment, we simply cleared the log and it was fine. I can only assume that there is an internal file size limit on the log file, and if it can't write your actions to the log then it doesn't do them!
