Question about LaCie (300770) 250 GB Hard Drive
It seems that you have a problem with the disk-drive inside the case. If it still is under warranty, exercise the warranty to get it replaced.
If not, then disassemble the case, and remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive inside a desktop computer,
to see if it can be read. If not, then it is "dead".
You could buy an identical disk-drive, and put it inside the case,
to construct a "new" external disk-drive.

is the scratchy sound coming from inside your lacie or outside ??
it might be a power problem trying to connect to your lacie but unable to find the device or a dirty hard drive the reader arm skipping across the platters you could give your lacie a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
