Question about LaCie Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a lacie big disk extreme + 2.0 TB. I am using Win XP Home. Recently, I have been having problems getting the drive to boot. According to windows, I have about 850 GB of drive space left, so I don't think the drive is getting full. The problem seems to be intermittent. Also, when I do get the drive to boot, when I try to access it, the light starts to flash and I lose the boot. Is this a problem with the drive, or my PC?

> is this a problem with ... my PC?

Try connecting the drive to a different PC.
If you have the same (intermittent?) problem, then it is NOT your PC which is at fault.

I suspect that your unit is about to _permanently_ fail.
Make a backup copy of all your files, before it does.

Then, exercise LaCie's warranty to get it replaced.

I have a 1TB LaCie 2Big Quadra. It has 2 500GB and runs on RAID 1. I replaced both 500 GB LaCie drives with 1.5 TB LaCie drives, but my computer only recognizes the original 500 GB. I formatted both...


I have the same problem too on my 2big form lacie . If I use 2x 1,5 tera disk in "fast mode" or in "big mode" my disk manager only shows 746 gigs available (it should be at least 2,5 terra).
If I use "safe mode" so my system can see 1,3 tera available, wich is normal for a raid mirror configuration.
I hope to find a solution quickly.

I had 4 LaCie 2TB Big Disk Quadra, Item 301343U. They are connected to a Nitro 8-PORT FIREWIRE 800/1394B PROFESSIONAL (N8PFW8HR) hub. The hub is connected to a LaCie Firewire 800 PCI card. I am running...


Let's not take this as a solution so much as an intuition. I believe you may have run up against a limit of physical disk space that XP can administrate.

DO me a favor and don't give my rating a thrashing if I'm wrong.

Best Regards,

Lights on nobody home


Well if it is less than 2 or 3 years old you could contact them to attempt a sawp out of the drive. Over that - replace the unit. IF you do - you might want to consider a duel disk enclosure so if a drive dies, your data does not. you can build one yourself (1 TB duel drives, Raid 1) for a total of 252 bucks, with good drives (Seagate - Barracuda) Yes I swear by the Seagate Drive. For off teh shelf they have worked very well in every application I have deployed them.

I've been burned by too many single drive failures - even when I have the data backed up it is still a royal pain.

La cie hard drive mount issues


I had the same problem and surprisingly, after many attempts to get the drive to mount with different connections, etc., the problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.
