Question about LaCie (301146U) 320 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Sharing Lacie with MacBook & PC

Backed up my MacBook @ GHz Intle, 1GB SDR to my LaCie 320 GB mini hub and then spouse backed up his PC on it. It forced him to partition the hub. Now I can't find my back up. Thankfully I haven't trashed any of those photos/docs I backed up. Is it possible for a PC & Macbook to share this LaCie? Once plugged in it showed two drives, mine & spouses'. How to I backup my Users file and photos?

Unless you use a specific software package to resize the existing partition (partition magic et al), the original partion and contents are effectivly erased... they can be recovered using disk recovery software in most cases though

If you still have the source files and both systems can see and write to their respective partition of the Ext HDD, then the easiest way to move forward is to just copy your files back onto the assigned partition.

You may have partitioned your hard drive. Have a look at your Computer Management Console by right clicking My Computer > Manage. Then under Storage, select Disk Management.

Lacie 250GB Hard Disk is not being recognized by PC (Windows XP)


Some PC's cannot deliver enough power to the USB devices to function properly through the USB port.
Does your Lacie hard disk have a power input connector if so conect a power adapter to it before you put it into your USB port.

Another alternative, get a powered USB hub connect it into your computer then connect the Lacie hard drive to the powered USB hub.

Mac drive not reading on pc


There is a software called macopener that let's you read mac formatted drives with a PC.
If that fails, and If the hdd is in device manager, than at least you can use carving tools like photorec to pull your files out, even if the filesystem is corrupt. If you want somebody else to do it for you you can check Data Recovery NYC. Otherwise http://hddguru.com/ is a great source for tools and knowledge on how to do it yoruself.

Hubs don't work on LaCie minin 250 GB Hard Drive


there is not enough power coming through ports each device re-quires 1-5 volts to run and if your mac has not got enough power to boot all devices then sadly all things pluged into will not reconise and with mac the os is not properly designed for it now if you got yourself an external usb 2.0 hub powered then yes all devices will be seen in mac windows firewire is unsafe at moment for this to happen ask them what system they had had configuration on. hope this has helped
