Question about LaCie Rugged All-Terrain (301017) Hard Drive
Nobody's jumping on this one, because they don't know how to bid and ask you for money when they know it's a troubleshooting problem and not a quick fix. So I'll try to help but DON"T trash my rating...LOL.
1. Are you connecting to the same computer where everything worked "great" last week. If not, it can be the drive (LaCie) can't find the driver it uses to communicate, or the computer cna't extract the driver from the LaCie and it needs to be supplied from an outside source. (You get the driver from a CD supplied or online).
2. You're connected to the same computer but the drive, even though "rugged" was attacked by a band of armed Gorillas (yes, the hairy kind) who couldn't find enough forage and wanted to eat the drive because it smelled like Jacque Cousteau so they shot it with native weapons from the Stone Age.
3. You dropped or placed it in such a way as to dislodge the heads so that your computer can see the drive just enough that it's apparent but resuses to be written to, despite it's ruggedness.
4. Download "Hiren's Boot CD 11.0" from the below link. Burn the download to a CD. Use the powerful tools in that CD to check your LaCie. If you do not know how, get a nearby friend who does. This isn't for ratings and not for kids. It's your data and your drive.
It's free but hard to find the little link amidst the ads. Don't be irritated by that. Hiren's is a masterpiece of free tools.
