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.

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.

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?

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.
