Hello, I assume that this is a FireWire external drive. Do you have any other FireWire devices (another drive, older iPod, etc) that you can test the port with? If other devices work, then the port on the drive has malfunctioned, or the drive needs repair (try Disk Warrior or First Aid in Disw Utility within OS X Applications...Utilities). If those other devices don't work either, then the port on the computer may be the problem (meaning logic board). You can also try creating another user in OS X, and testing the ports and the drive under that user. If all is well as another user, then you may have a software issue in your own user account.

My mobile hard drive lacie rugged crashed, doesn't show on laptop or iMac and i need to recover my data stored in it


You may need to send it out to a data recovery lab. Before that try a remote access data recovery service like http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They operate an online data recovery service via the internet and also offer do-it-yourself data recovery assistance.

Lacie 1tb ext hd. drive does not show in disk


Your external drive has 2 parts, the hard drive, which is just a normal hard drive you would find in any computer, and the usb bridge, which connects the hard drive interface (either ide or usb) to the usb or firewire or esata or whatever. Sounds like one of these are bad. Does the computer see the bridge? it should show up as a mass storage device in device manager and the safely remove usb devices dialog. If not, then get a new enclosure for the drive. These range from 25-100 dollars. If the bridge does show up, take apart the enclosure and pull the drive out and try hooking it up as a second drive in your computer. If it works there, then you need a new enclosure. If not, then you need a new drive.

Macintosh computer not recognizing the LaCie external hard drive


1. If you have another firewire device test this device with the same firewire cord you are currently useing for the LaCie. (if there is no reasponse form the other device then it is the cord it's self) If not then 2. Check the Leads on the back of the LaCie where the firewire plugs in if the copper looks tarnished use a ear swab dipped in Lime Away or CLR to clean it then wait for it to dry and try the cord again. 3. if these physical connections are in good connection with each other and the firewire in port on your computer and on the LaCie are good then. Run a "Permissions" verify and repair through the disk utility program on your Mac with the LaCie turned on and plugged in.
FINALLY if none of these options repair the LaCie you may have to open the LaCie up and check to make sure the soldering from the firewire to the chip set is still in tact. I hope this helps Happy Macing.

Lacie hd problem


This is a pretty old thread, but I just figured out the work-around for my Lacie drive with the same symptoms. I took the Lacie case apart to find a pretty standard 3.5" Seagate Barracuda drive inside the case. If you pull the actual hard drive out of the box, you can either purchase a new external hard drive adapter box ($30-80) or install it into a tower computer. I installed it into an older G3 tower and it mounted right up. I decided it wasn't worth investing in a six year old hard drive, so I will be purchasing a new drive and pulling the data off the old one.

LaCie 1 TB Hard drive won't boot


I lave lots and lots of experience with LaCie Drives (I have 6 of the 2TB models). Every, every, every time a drive fails or runs slowly, it is the power supply. I have now replaced 5. They run very hot (so does the drive), and fail pretty often. It looks like the voltage drops just a smidge, and access times seem to increase, i.e., the drive "runs slow". Then it won't boot at all, and the blue light keeps blinking. Fortunately LaCie has replacement power supplies in the store. Buy a couple extra. I am married to the LaCie drives now, or I would probably switch brands. I kind of guess that they know about this because I contacted the help desk, and he wasn't surprised. Maxtor has a nice drive, and the Calvary drive is $150 cheaper. A drive is a drive I guess. By the way, if anyone is listening, how about building a QUIET, COOL drive with and INTERNAL POWER SUPPLY? GOT IT? All the cords and power supply bricks make me crazy. It might be nice to see a stackable drive where the top of one drive mates to the bottom of another, carrying network info as well as power to the drive above. Hint, hint. We all are building systems with ungodly amounts of storage. Too bad the manufacturers aren't building drives with the durability we need.
