An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.


There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files.
For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge guarantee".

Help is it possibol to upgrade lacie big disk extreme 500gb to 1tb or 2tb. thanks. FC


Maybe. If the current disk-drive has an IDE interface, then your 500GB disk-drive already is the largest IDE disk-drive ever produced. Or, if the current disk-drive has a SATA interface, then the sky (or the thickness of your wallet) is the limit.

It may sound unrelated but there are maybe two things to check first

1. If the drive or folder you are copying from is "shared" then this could quite conceivably cause the problem. Check and turn off the share or move COPY the file to a non shared location first.

2. Unwanted programs eg. virus / malware / spyware can also cause these types of issue. NOTE there is a great difference between virus and spyware and they both need special programs to deal with this area.

LaCie Big Disk Extreme 1TB Hard Drive - continuous beep, no power


Hi, Lacie isn't very forthcoming with beep codes but it definitely means one of the two. You can try moving the hard drive into a new enclosure, if it works it was the enclosure, if not the HDD. Hate to say it but warranty on these drives is a moot point the moment unique data is stored on them as you can't even diagnose the problem properly without voiding it and no drive manufacturer will waranty data. If you have no unique data and it's under warranty, send it back. If you have unique data on it that you value, take it to a local computer store and have them move the drive to a new external enclosure and test it. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't, you've confirmed that the HDD is faulty and you will need the help of a data recovery Pro. If the latter is the case, reply by commenting here with your location (country, state city) and I'll recommend a closeby facility for you. Chris

Trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue


Hello,

It sounds like the RAID controller in the LAcie drive may have failed. When this happens generally the data on the drive is left intact but you will require a new casing for the drives and the help of a data recovery pro to get the files off before you can re-initialize the set. Unfortunately all the good free/cheap utilities work only on single drives so you will need the help of a pro with high level software and additional equipment to retrieve the files.

If you are in North America I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery, they're listed in the FixYa service database for most US states. If you're outside North America, post your location and I will help you find an appropriate service.

Deference Lacie d2 Quadra1TB/Lacie big disk ?


It's all about the interfaces.
The Quadra has four interfaces: • eSATA • FW 400 • FW 800 • USB 2.0
The triple has all but the eSATA interface listed above.
For doing video work you want a big drive with a fast interface. If you have eSATA available then that's the fastest. If you don't then you're just as well off to go with the triple interface. The FW 800 would be the next fastest, then the USB 2.0, then the FW 400.
Because of the way that data is transferred I believe that when doing video work you would be best served by the FW 400 instead of the USB 2.0 even though the USB is faster I don't believe it is a full duplex communication so the FW 400 is actually better for video.
