Question about LaCie (300770) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

When I plug in my Lacie external hard drive to my computer, it freezes up the Computer window when I am browsing my drives. Eventually it shows up, but shows that it has no files on it and doesn't say how much space it has, and won't allow me to explore the drive. Any idea on how to fix this? (Also it does have a few hundred gigs on it).

Try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
good luck with this

My lacie external hard drive doesn't show up on my desktop the light just flicker


When it eventually will, check the disk (all terms may vary, depending of your version of Windows) :
Right-click the icon of the disk, then click "properties".
In the "Properties" window, select the "Tools" tab, and click "Check now". Check both checkboxes, and run.
This should fix the access problems on your drive.

How do I view the files in my LaCie backup folder? The show hidden files/folders option is checked and I still can't see anything.


It appears you have an external hard drive. It should connect to your computer with a USB cable. Make sure the external hard drive is turned on and running before you connect the usb cable to the computer. Some external hard drives have an on/off switch and some do not. you can hear it running if you put your ear close to the case.

When you plug it in, wait a few minutes and the computer should indicate that it has recognized it. (sometimes this does not happen) In any case, after a few minutes, open My Computer (Computer, in Windows 7) (sometimes referred to as Explorer- NOT to be confused with Windows Explorer which is an internet browser). You should see a list of recognized drives including your external hard drive. Doubler click on it and you should be able to see your files.

If it doesn't show in Explorer, the computer might be trying to assign a drive letter to it that is already taken. To fix that, go to Control panel, Administrator Tools, Computer management, Disk Management. You should see your external drive listed and you can assign an unused drive designation to it there. You should then be able to go back to Explorer and see it. You might have to refresh the Explorer screen.

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.

Lacie HD power light flashing yellow and orange


Hi. Sometimes, there are compatibility issues on external drives. Most recent computers will read them while others may not. Either the external casing or the cable is causing this.

First time trying and i cannot access my data. This is the first time I tried to pull it up.


USB is very finnicky. Shut off your computer and external drive. Unplug the USB cord from one end (which ever is easiest). Turn on your computer. When windows is up, plug in USB cable. Turn on USB drive. Windows should recognize the USB ox and drive and attach the extra drives. But, you must have windows millenium or newer. Or you will need USB drivers for the external USB box.

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.
