I bought today a lacie hard disk 500GB and instead of 500GB has only 9.99 MB space.What's the problem?


Sounds like your have a 9.99mb partition on your drive with the rest being free space.

If you are running windows goto the Computer Management program and check under storage> disk management to see if your 500gb drive is there. if it is delete the existing partitions and reformat the entire disk to NTFS

Not able to detect the disk


We're going to need more information to troubleshoot, but if it's a new drive that's never been set up follow the instructions below. If these instructions aren't helpful, then please post back with more info and I'll help you further.

Your external hard drive likely has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click "Administrative Tools."
4. Double-click "Computer Management."
5. Select "Disk Management" under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hard drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

How do I format my new Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex Hard Drive to Fat32 for use with Xbox 360? I am using Windows 7 and when I open up the formatting options only NTFS and exFAT are available.


Windows Disk Management can only format a hard drive less than 32 GB to FAT32. If you want to format your 500GB drive to Fat 32, you need to use third party program like AOMEI Partition Assistant. http://www.disk-partition.com/free-partition-manager.html

If your usb hard drive is upto 500gb thenit don't require external power but if it is more than 500gb then it require external power.
And try to format the whole drive and recreate the partition on the hard drive. This will solve your problem.

How can I format an external lacie drive to mount on both a PC and a MAC without partitioning


You can not use the drive on both systems. It has to be formatted for one or the other. To transfer your files, I would either backup your files to CD's/DVD's or try to network your Mac and PC, then just dump your files to a share folder of some sort.

I want to partition a 500gb on a format for speed


The speed is limited by the USB port rate transfer and hard drive specifications. You will not get a difference with a specific format or partition choice.

I can not see the other items on my hard drive and it only shows 83gb on my 500gb hard drive help


Hello,
It could be that the other 400gb is unformatted space. Use a utility such as Partition magic to extend the formatted partition, or create a partition in the unformatted space.

Hope it helps.

LaCie 500GB external will not show up on mac desktop. Blue light on, whirrs as if working but no icon on desktop (not mounted)


Did you format the drive using Disk Utility? Open "disk utility" from the dock icon or applications/utilities folder. Click the drive name on the left side of the disk utility window. click the "partition" tab in the window, next click the "options" tab and select GUID Partition scheme, or any Mac compatible scheme, read each explanation of the schemes. Name and resize your partitions, click apply. This is how it works running Leopard, not positive if the same applies to Tiger. I hope this helps you
