Question about LaCie d2 (300769) 200 GB Hard Drive
Hello. I have an old G4 One processor tower. It is used as the work horse for a closed printing system for art giclee's. The Mac has never been connected to the internet. The Operating system is OS9.2.2. I have had LaCie HD for ever and never had a problem with any of them, ever. I never even registered them for they were simply plug in and play and I was not connected to the internet. I have a 54,64,three 80, three 250,and two 580. I had only one of the 580 hooked up to the AC and computer, but now NON of them show up on the computer. I believe the problem began when I used a thumb drive connected to my new leopard to adjust a jpeg picture on my G4. I finally got my other peripherals working but non of the HD show up. I have reinstalled their software, still nothing. I called LaCie they are sending me a new AC adapter. This is strange since I had two LaCie's and was only using one, I was able to try the hardly used cord. All of my information is on these drives. My computer is recognizing everything else, cameras, printers, scanners, everything. I have ordered a new Adaptic 3 port just incase the ports are bad, but I have tried the HD with the USB connector in ports that work for other peripherals and still nothing! This is completely perplexing. Any ideas? Thanks for the thoughts. christy
My guess is that your thumb drive was somehow
infected with a virus!
( The thumb drive has probably been connected to internet)
It sound like a virus infection because all the drives
has been affected !

is the scratchy sound coming from inside your lacie or outside ??
it might be a power problem trying to connect to your lacie but unable to find the device or a dirty hard drive the reader arm skipping across the platters you could give your lacie a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm
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
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
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,
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 also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
