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.

How do I open my Generic 1 terabyte 1tb usb 2.0 3.5 external hard drive black enclosure?

You'll probably need to use a spudger (bits of old credit card) to force the case open.

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.

External hard drive not openning

Good News, Your data is probably still safe. Go to best buy or online and buy a new cheap external usb case for your harddrive. you can find them for about 7-25 bucks. Make sure you get the right one for the hard drive in your lacie. Take the hard drive out of the lacie case and put it in the cheap case and you will have your data back. I had this happen to me before. If you need help just ask me... Hope this helps you

The fan from my LaCie 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

I'd look for tiny screws. I'm not familiar with this model, but external drives either slide into a tube-like case with a removable front and back plate, or have a removable top, similar to the case on a computer. I'd be surprised to find that there's something hitting the fan. The wires in there are packed pretty tight. I'm guessing that the fan is dieing. You'll likely need to replace the fan. If you're lucky, it's a plug-in. More likely, it's a solder-in. If this is under warranty, I'd call LaCie and have them fix it. Definitely don't use it if the fan is dying. When the fan goes, the drive could be close behind.
