Question about LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini, 500 GB Hard Disk Drive with Gigabit Ethernet & USB 2.0 Interface, 7200 rpm... IDE Hard Drive
Same problem. Bought a new power supply at extortionate price from Lacie but still no joy. I'm hoping to find a way of converting to a dumb external USB HD.

Tips for a great answer:
Locate the power cable and USB cable that came with your hard drive.
Connect cables to the appropriate locations on the back of the hard drive.
Sometimes a USB cable doubles as the power source, so you might not need a wall outlet to power the device.
Turn on your computer and allow your operating system time to load before continuing.
Plug the hard drive into the power outlet if necessary, but wait on powering up the device.
Connect the USB cable to the computer while the hard drive is in the "Off" position.
If the USB cable doubles as the power source, the device might turn itself on once connected.
Turn on the hard drive and wait until the hardware has been detected by the operating system. A message should pop up that lets you know new hardware has been detected.
Click on the "Start" menu and go to "My Computer."
Notice all your disk drives are listed in this window. The external hard drive should be visible, and holding the mouse cursor over the location will help you locate the correct drive.
Right click on the location of the drive, and move the cursor to "Open" or "Explore" and click.
Hope this helps
