    Same here.. light is on but computer can't read it It says working properly but still computer still can't read the USD HDD

    I plug mine in, the light comes on.... and that's it. Nothing else. I know of at least one other person who has this same HD and they also have the same problem.



    It's not the biggest HD in the world but I'd still like to make use of the space.


    Cheers.

I have the same problem with Toshiba HTS541060G9SA00 60GB S-ATA drive.
This drive is working in Toshiba M100-164 laptop but not in external S-ATA usb enclosures (Cooler Master Xcraft 250 and Power EH-25BSII).
Device manager said that "This device is working properly", but it was not mounted.
I tried these encolosures with Western Digital (WDC WD2500BEVS) 250GB S-ATA drive and it was working in both external encolosures.

Help my hd just stop working


If the drive is external, you can try to remove it from its case and attempt to read in using another adapter. If the drive itself will not spin up a data recovery service may be your only option (usually expensive)

Recognized - but no mount


Don't know about the MAC part, but an I/O error implies that the either the source file cannot be read or the destination drive will not write. This is usually an indicator of a bad HDD. To check, I would attempt to connect the external drive to another computer. If it still gives the same indication, contact the drive manufacturer about data recovery recommendations

Turns on but nothing else


I have been using this hard disk for about 6 months now. It stopped working. The power and the usb cable are connected. I use Windows Xp and it doesnt read it. And for some reason most of the time when i open 'my computer' and the hard disk usb cable is plugged in 'my computer' stops responding !! However the 'safely remove disk' icon comes on the task bar and i can remove it from there. But i cant read it from explorer. The light on the HD keeps blinking. It reads my friends HD and flash drive. Please help me.

Whenever there is an HFS Volume could not be repaired issue, that means that your hard drive's existing volume has been damaged and may not be retrievable. In most cases like this, you would be advised to perform an Erase and Install to correct the damaged directory on your portable HD. However, as I understand that is not what you want to do, you may want to research Mac Utility software like these titles below:

Disc Warrior 4.1
font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica}
(for Macs from Alsoft)

Tech Tools Pro 5.0 (for Macs from Micromat)

Drive Genius 2 - Mac (for Macs from Prosoft Engineering)

These are three of the better hard drive diagnostics, repair and directory rebuilding software on the market for Mac Users. I have used them a number of times as a professional onsite Certified Mac technician and they have helped me to help the customers I assisted many times over.

These Mac Utility software all have a price point of under $100.00 and when you are able to experience just how well they work, you find it is worth the investment.

an HFS volume error is repairable with the right software and these utilities are your best option aside from outright erasing and installing your Lacie HD.

Seagate 120GB 2.5" with USB 2.0 HDD external Case


Did you try reinstalling the drivers and software for it? I have a Seagate FreeAgent drive and once it went to sleep, it did that exact same thing. I kept playing with it, and rebooting the PC and it finally woke up. On the FreeAgent I was able to then tell it never to sleep again.
