Question about LaCie 160GB Little Disk USB2/FW400 160 GB Hard Drive

Open Question

I have an older Lacie Little Disk 500GB USB2 only external hard drive an it no longer able to upload. The files I have on it are fine I just can't seem to add any new files and it's only have full. When I try to upload any new file no matter what size it will start to upload it and then just sit there and not progress more than a few mega bytes. I'm using a dual G5 Mac running OS 10.4.11. Any suggestions what the problem might be.

SOURCE: creating space on external hard drive

When you move files to the Trash on a Mac you are just marking the files to be deleted next time you empty the trash. You are not actually deleting them when you move them to the trash. They will continue to take up space on your drive until you empty the trash.

Emptying the trash will delete everything in the Trash folder regardless of which drive it is stored on. If you have files you are not certain you want to delete that are located on your internal drive, open the Trash folder and move them temporarily out (like to the desk top), then empty the trash to delete all the ones on the external drive that you do want to clear off.

You will see that the free space has increased on the external drive. Now put back in the trash the files from your internatl drive you were thinking of deleting but not certain you wnated to (if that is your reason for not wanting to empty the trash. I'm not clear on why you would not want to delete them.)

Has the drive been formatted? Before using a hdd it has to be formatted. In Windows XP you have choices of FAT 32 or NTFS format. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

Lacie do not start


If it still is under warranty, then exercise the warranty, and get it repaired/replaced.

If it's out-of-warranty, then disassemble the case, and disconnect the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if the disk-drive still works.

If it's dead, it's dead, unless you pay mega-dollars to a professional "Data Recovery Service" to rescue your files.

If it is dead, then buy another disk-drive that is compatible with that USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and reassemble the unit, and you'll have a brand-new external drive that you can use.

Doesn't work


am not so sure if this is a similar issue with iomega2_bing.gif external drive in which the drive wont show up on My Computer but when the external drive was plugged into an ubuntu machine the drive was being detected and working just fine.

Please try to do the same. plug your external drive to an ubuntu machine and lets see if it can be detected. If it is then the hard disk has a similar issue with iomega drives. check this link for the solution.

I have a LaCie 500 GB Exernal Hard Drive, everytime I plug it into my laptop it works fine for a few minutes (various lengths from 2 minutes to 20 minutes) then it causes my laptop to freeze. I no longer...


Are you sure it is not a power problem? If the drive has an external power supply then then will not be the case, but if not, the USB port might not provide enough power.

Can't accept Quadra 500 on my owerMac G5 Quad


Scrap LAcie!! Sounds like in this case, it may have been jostled around during shipping. None the less, Lacie drives are nothing more than bricks waiting to fail. Go Western Digital, but if oyu can, zip straight for Seagates!!!! Professional grade!! ALways check the cables, the ones that come with them are bottom bin cables, made by little singapore children with no fingers..... Invest in a good cables...a drive is only as good as the weakest datalink.

Cash on the warranty!!!

Keep me posted.
