Lacie 2big Triple 2T - Raid 1 LED's blinking

Hi,
Just purchased the above external drive, switched to SAFE mode (Raid 1), all was fine so I copied a file onto it to test. All good so far ... then I switched it off, removed one drive, switched it back again to test whether the Raid system was working before copying all my files over ... in theory the data should have been there with the one drive. It was, and I was able to open it. I then again ejected/switched off and replaced the 2nd drive but now the front and back LED's are continuously flashing red/blue which according to the Lacie manual indicates a drive failure. I reinserted it to make sure it was plugged in properly and it is still flashing ... any help would be much appreciated.
Regards,
Stefan.

Solved! After 17 hours of blinking, the status of the 3 leds is now to fixed blue. You just have to be patient...
Note that I had only put 1GB of data on the drive. I expect that the resynchronization time is not proportionnal to the amount of data on the disk!

    Better get your data off this disk while it is still alive

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.

The front LED flashes red & blue when I turn it on. What does this mean?


LED Indicators - LaCie 2big Network
The LED indicators above the drive bays and the front LED indicate drive status and activity.
During Startup
  • Front LED – blinks red/blue until both disks are powered on, then turns solid blue.
  • Rear LEDs – blinks red/blue until corresponding disk is powered on, then turns solid blue.
NOTE: If the device is not able to initiate the boot process following disk startup, the front is solid red.
During Bootup
  • Front LED – solid blue
  • Rear LEDs – solid blue
NOTE: If a disk is failing, both the disk’s corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid red.
During RAID Synchronization
  • Front LED – solid red
  • Rear LEDs – The LED corresponding to the original disk will be blinking blue and the one being synchronized is blinking red
  • Once both disks are synchronized, their corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid blue.

Deference Lacie d2 Quadra1TB/Lacie big disk ?


It's all about the interfaces.
The Quadra has four interfaces: • eSATA • FW 400 • FW 800 • USB 2.0
The triple has all but the eSATA interface listed above.
For doing video work you want a big drive with a fast interface. If you have eSATA available then that's the fastest. If you don't then you're just as well off to go with the triple interface. The FW 800 would be the next fastest, then the USB 2.0, then the FW 400.
Because of the way that data is transferred I believe that when doing video work you would be best served by the FW 400 instead of the USB 2.0 even though the USB is faster I don't believe it is a full duplex communication so the FW 400 is actually better for video.
