Try formatting it first. If it is not possible to format this way, try to format the drive from the command prompt
Start - Run - type 'cmd' . once inside the command prompt, type the command format drive: where drive is the drive letter

Lacie icon not showing up on my desktop

Try disconnecting the usb cable from the drive and take the drive to a quiet place.

Power up the drive and put your ear next to it. Listen for the internal disk to speed up and then click (which means it's ready). At this point you should have a solid blue LED on the enclosure.

If not, either the disk is bad, the enclosure's controller is bad, or the external power brick is bad (put your ear next to the power brick and if you hear a faint clicking sound, the power brick is bad and you can order a new one from LaCie for about $16.00.

You rate will be much appreciated!

My LaCie is not recognized by my computer, makes a clicking noise when it tries to start up. I've used this external hard drive for several years with no problems.

It has most probably just reached its "end of life". Several years for a hard drive reading and writing is a good track record.
You can probably take the casing apart and replace the hard drive. Just make sure that this is an USB 2.0 interface before spending the money.

It seems you figure out the issue. If its under warranty then have it the "power" replaced.

LaCie 500 GB hard Drive - does not register on my desktop

if it is a USB (or you have low disc space), it does take longer to show up on desktop and patience is required... on my iBook it takes over a minute for my Brick to show up... Whether it is USB or firewire, do try another cord (I had similar problem with my lacie firewire external... I used a different firewire cord and all was fine. If you have tried these already, I hope you find the answer... good luck
