Hello,

Connecting the connector is pretty easy. Each connection has pin numbers assigned to them. Normally, the red wire on your connector attaches to pin 1. This is usually the furthest to the right. Still, all connectors are keyed. That is to say they can only be connected one way and not upside down. If you find the connector does not want to easily attach DO NOT force it, flip it over and try again, it should attach easily now.

If you need an illustration, let me know and yes you can post a photo just to be safe, if you choose.

Regards, and ask for any further clarification you may need. I'm here to fix your problem.

Acer aspire ts 135 tray will not open. the LED is lit but pushing button does no good. any recommendations/


Turn your computer off. Unplug the computer. Do not turn it back on until you follow the next few steps and are able to open the front of the tray.

There is a tiny hole in the front of the drive. Bend a paper clip until it is almost completely straight and push the paperclip (long end) into the tiny hole until you feel resistance. Push a little harder and the door will open, and release the disk.

Your eject drive is probably broken. You can purchase a new one, or release it each time with the paperclip trick, as long as you shut off your computer each time you stick the metal paper clip into the tiny hole - so that you don't get electrocuted in the process.

I suggest replacing the drive, after you remove the disk from your current drive.

I have lost the external power supply for my 1TB laCie (300797U). I have another power supply that has physically the right connector, but I'm not sure if the voltages are right. The supply I have is a...


The voltages are right because hard drives use 12volts for the motor drive and 5volts for the digital logic circuits.
The only thing I don't know is the correct voltages for the various pins, there is a possibility it may not suit the LaCie.
This maybe a standard configuration for external USB hard drives, you need to check with LaCie.

Here is the PDF Users Manual for the LaCie DVD+RW 301230U
external optical drive,

http://www.lacie.com/download/manual/portable_dvd_sh_en.pdf

(Give it at least 10 seconds to download)
Should the direct link above not work for you, you can download the Users Manual from here,

http://www.generalmanual.com/Disc-Burners/LaCie-301230U-Portable-DVD-RW.htm

Go down to the bottom of the page, and under the green -> Download Now <- heading, click on -> User Manual
The reason I posted the link to the User Manual, is that you can use a USB to USB cable for power. You plug one end of the USB cable, into an available USB port on your computer, and the other end, into the LaCie DVD+RW external optical drive. (You need two available USB ports on your computer. One for power, and one to connect the LaCie external optical drive. This USB cable, is called an Interface cable)

The USB end, that goes into your computer, (Laptop or Desktop computer), is the USB A style end. (Male) This is what it looks like,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_TypeA_Plug.JPG

The USB end, that plugs into the Lacie optical burner drive, is a USB Mini-B style end. (Male) It looks like this,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg
It is the second one from the left side.

Where I'm at, we have Walmart stores. At Walmart they sell a USB adapter kit, made by Philips. This kit has a USB A to USB A cable, that both ends are Male. This cable is on a little retractable reel. The reel is about the size of a USA fifty cent piece. In the kit are five different styles of USB adapter ends. They just plug on that USB A to USB A style cable. (On the small reel) One of those adapter ends is a Mini-B USB male end. It has a Female USB A socket on one side, and a Male USB MIni-B end, on the other side. The kit sells for about $12 dollars.

Should you find that somehow, this USB power cable does not give enough power to your LaCie external optical burner drive, then here is LaCie.com, Products, Support & Downloads, and the Power Supply, for your LaCie DVD+RW 301230U external optical drive,
