Hello,
it is a known issue that these particular drives sometimes don't get recognized by the Operating System, after coming out of Sleep, Stand By, or Hibernation.
Simply try to disconnect and reconnect the drive again in the USB port, if this doesn't work then, Disconnect it from the USB and connect it to the Firewire. if this doesn't work then, Restart the computer.
It should solve the problem.

hi.
maybe problem is caused by your Power supply.
so i recommend you to do these:
1- remove the main hard drive and only connect "250GB lacie porsche hard drive".
and see is it recognized or not.
2- go to the bios (with pressing "delete key" at start of turning on) and navigate to power center.
then enable power saving mode.

Blinking lights and not recognized by computer


Try to remove the internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to PC. Does it show up this way?
Does it make any new clicking/knocking/whirring/grinding sounds like any of these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?

Hi anaesaror.........


What version of windows are you using, XP with SP3 should see and recognize pretty much any USB drive out there, especially a cruzer, look in control panels | system | hardware | Device Manager for anything weird going on, there should be no yellow caution signs or red X's if you see the yellow caution sign, it means you will need t update your OS or find a driver, if the device has a red X over it, right click and try to enable it.
