Question about LaCie 160GB Mobile Disk USB2.0 160 GB Hard Drive

2 Answers

I used my Lacie 160GB Mobile Disk from morning to evening on my Dell Latitude D610 Laptop, until evening when my younger brother came home from work, he demands to copy some movies from my Lacie 160GB Mobile Disk, I ejected the drive properly but on connecting it to his HP Laptop; firstly it started seeing it as Drive E: and not Lacie H: that it will normally be identified as, secondly it shows the total size as 3.77GB and free space as 102MB but shows the same drive as 149.05GB and healthy; thirdly if you open the drive I can't even see my files again. What's happening, please help me I need my files badly, I have 140gb files on that harddrive

This happened because your brother's computer is infected with a virus or otherwise corrupted. Take the drive and both computers to a local tech to further diagnose the problem and that tech can probably recover your files. I think your brother should pay for the repairs - his computer has some malware that may have overwritten your files. This is why you should do two things - first, always have two kinds of backups - copy vital files to a usb memory stick, and second, don't lend anyone any device you plug into your computer - that is how viruses are spread.

SOURCE: Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

SOURCE: Lacie 320gb external harddrive which was connected

The drive letter and USB port are not inherently tied together. you can give it a drive letter as long as nothing else is going to use that letter inherently, and be fine. Did giving it "F" work?

SOURCE: 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.

You need to get a Recovery CD for your model laptop from Dell. Boot up with this Recovery CD and follow the instructions.
You can get this Recovery CD from the Dell WEB site.
To get the correct model Recovery CD use the Service Tag number, it is on the label that is attached to the bottom of the laptop.

Dell Latitude D610 is over heating


Your best bet is to take it to a good local computer shop who can take it apart and clean out the fans in your laptop. maybe even repaste your cpu while they are at it. but if your familiar with doing it then do it, but if your not at all sure about anything inside your laptop, let someone who knows how to do it do it. let me know how you get on.
