External hard disks can fail for a number of reasons, but check the device manager and disk management first to see if it is recognized (assuming you are using Windows).

My mobile hard drive lacie rugged crashed, doesn't show on laptop or iMac and i need to recover my data stored in it


You may need to send it out to a data recovery lab. Before that try a remote access data recovery service like http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They operate an online data recovery service via the internet and also offer do-it-yourself data recovery assistance.

Try swapping usb cables if possible. You can also try swapping enclosures but this will void your warranty.

See if it shows up in Windows Disk Management if so then you may have just lost the partition you can try to recover lost partitions with Testdisk its free http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

It may be your best bet is to contact Lacie support. http://www.lacie.com/support/support_manifest.htm?id=10177

The LaCie rugged 1TB keeps self ejecting...I have done disk repair and have reformatted. Is it a bad one?


1. yes and you will need to get a replacement.
2. there is a possible failing usb controller on the drive.
3. If you used the Window repair to fix this this has possibly made it worse.

My Lacie Rugged 500 US/400/800 drive ejects automaticaly. It show connected in system profiler, but not in disk utility. when i disconnect and reconnect, it shows on desktop only after doing so 3-4 times...


It may be the cable that you are using to connect it to your computer. Are you using a USB or Firewire cable to connect? To me it seems like the cable may be damaged, and that it why it disconnects after a few seconds, like it is not getting enough power to run the drive.
If you have one to hand, try another cable. or if you can try a different type of cable (if you are using USB at the moment, try a firewire)
Also, (I have the same drive) if you are using it with an USB cable you will need the power usb adapter plugged in as well as this drive does not get enough power from a single USB cable.
Hope this helps.

MacBook won't recognize my Lacie Rugged Hard Disk. Disk utility will see it but won't verify it nor will it repair it. says it needs to be reformatted yet it won't even let me initialize it. it is brand...


Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.

Sorry mate... too many limitations on

My lacie rugged 500gb triple interface normally worked but now doesn't load anymore. It makes a strange soft sound for 2 seconds and then nothing. help!!!!

Open the external hard drive cover, remove the hard disk inside, and fix it back. Try again and let's see what happens.

If it still does not work, insert the external drive into the computer, feel the hard drive if it spins/vibrate from inside or if it makes a cracking noise.

If it spins/vibrate, it means the hard disk is still working. In that case, you have to get another external drive case/cover.

But if it makes cracking noise, then it means the hard drive is damaged and you need to get another one.

I wish you all the best.

I have the Lacie Rugged hard drive 320,undetectable


Since you have tried connecting the hard drive (HD) into two computers (Win7 and Vista) and both of them had the same problem, you may want to try replacing the cable of the HD.

Another thing, try connecting the HD into a Windows XP computer and see if same thing will happen. If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned ON, I'm sorry to say but the HD is no longer working. That clicking sound is also called the "Click of Death".

Thank you!
