LaCie Hard Drive, FA Porsche model

I want to check the data that has been backed up on my LaCie Hard Drive. It says that the disk is full. Is there a way that I can do this -- i.e. is is somewhere on my computer?
Do I have to take the hard drive apart?
Do I have to pay someone to retrieve the data?

Thank you for your help.

If the disk is FULL then you have used all the space, this is not uaually a fault but you may need to look at the data on there and delete any old stuff you dont need. IF you need it all then you should buy a larger capacity drive.

use "my computer" to see the drives connected to your PC. The lacie should be easily identified by it's name. Double click on the drive and you can explore the files/folders.

I have the Lacie F.A. Porsche hard drive/usb2 connection. It has not been used for some time. I connected it to my computer, I have power as I see orange light(not flashing). But my computer cannot detect...


The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

Do you have a CD disc software installer of your external hard drive (F.A. Porshe 160GB).? If you got it, you must reinstall it, so that your Imac can detect it. Otherwise, find it at the internet and download it.

Lacie extern. hard drive is recognized, but I can't access files


Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

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.

Recover data from a non responsive LaCie F.A. Porsche Hard Drive


Does your drive make any unusual sounds like any of these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
If yes then you got a problem - it's something mechanical with the heads and it's not something you can fix by yourself.
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all - try to connect it to another computer and if still no go - remove the internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to PC via SATA port.

LaCie F.A. Porsche Hard Drive is no longer recognized


I was able to acces the hard drive again, by replacing the cable that goes from the hard drive to the computer. Once I did that, there was no problem with the connection.

However, some of the data seems to be corrupted or lost. Still trying to sort that out, but I did retrieve most of it.
