Question about LaCie Rugged All-Terrain (301017) Hard Drive
When you get this message it usually means that the either hard disk is not formatted correctly, or hard disk/LaCie disk enclosure is defective.
First turn off and disconnect power from Mac and LaCie disk. This procedure may fix problems given by electrostatic charges by draining power completely.
Disconnect Mac adapter and remove main battery if you have a MacBook, disconnect power cord with Mac desktop. Also disconnect USB cable from Mac to Lace and disconnect LaCie power cord.
If the Mac still does not read the disk, test the esternal HDD using a different computer. If the disk works with a Windows PC, then the disk is not formatted for Mac. Use the Mac to format the hard drive. All data previously stored in the LaCie will be deleted.
If it is not possible to format the hard drive, and the disk is not accessed by any computer, then the disk inside the Lacie enclosure is probably faulty. Testing is done taking apart the enclosure and installing the HDD held inside the LaCie caddy into a different enclosure.
