1. It fails with your computer.
2. It works with your XBOX.
3. Find another computer, and connect it.

If it works, then YOUR computer is the problem.
If it does not work, then the problem probably is with the LACIE.

CameraWindow won't open or will suddenly close before loading


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Won't see hard drive


Try just removing both cables from the back of the hard drive for about 30 seconds then plug them back in.

Check inside your bios for Large Drive Support or AHCI. If you see AHCI try changing it's setting and see if the drive is recognized. I've seen many times where just changing the AHCI makes the drive suddenly appear.

Restore files


You can have the data removed by a file recovery business, it is costly. They remove the stoarge media and read it directly using special equipment. Unless the hard drive works (you can read it with your computer) that is your only choice

Is the PC you've used before is the operating system is windows Xp? If you've using windows Xp before then you've plug it in a windows 7 Operating system, it means your hard disc have no problem the operating system of your PC is different than before. Try to plug it in a windows Xp operating system then recover it in there then format it in a windows 7 operating system then, the windows Xp and windows 7 try to make a network place in the connection then share the hard disc files that you've recovered then copy and paste it in the newly format hard drive that formated in a windows 7 operating system.

1. Unplug it from the computer and from the power cord. Wait 5 minutes for the drive to cool up a bit.
2. Plug it again to the power and to the computer - using OTHER USB PORT, (a rear port - at the back of the computer is better. Make sure the computer is already powered up and logged on).

If the problem persists, it probably means that the hard drive is dead, sorry.
To make further testing/fixing, try using HDD Regenerator. You might need to take apart the hard drive's case to use the drive with this software, which is not that easy, to my own experience - but definitely doable!

Good luck!
