Question about LaCie (300728U) 250 GB Hard Drive
Ext drive 3 years old not recognised by computer suddenly.
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.
