Power Adaptor for 500GB LaCie P3 HD USB 2.0 7200RPM 8MB USA?

Hi,

My LaCie 500GB Porsche USB drive stopped being recognized by my Mac. After looking up all the suggested problem and troubleshooting suggestions, it turns out that it was the power adaptor that was the problem. Luckily, I was able to diagnose it using a friend's power adaptor (he has the same exact LaCie).

Now, I'm wondering what model power adaptor I need! There's one for LaCie Porsche but there's also one for Bigger Disk. My LaCie has a 4 pin connector, so it's been suggested that I need the Bigger Disk power adaptor rather than the ones labeled LaCie Porsche power adaptor.

Please advise.

Thanks!
Andrea

    I heard back from LaCie and they confirmed that the power supply I need for LaCie 500GB Porsche USB is the Bigger Disk power adaptor.

Both power adaptors are 4 pin, ITHINK that the Porsche that you have is the same as mine which has the smaller (4 pin DIN) plug 34W power supply.
But check on LaCie's site: http://www.lacie.com/asia/products/product.htm?pid=10857
Hope this helps.

If problem is with drive, this may not work. If problem is with enclosure, you have to open the enclosure, extract the drive and get a HDD dock (usually around $15-$30) and access the drive that way.

Put an extra hd , now cpu fan spins and stops after 1 sec


Disconnect the data-cable and power-cable from the extra hard-drive, and try again. If the problem is the same, then the extra hard-drive, by itself, is not the problem. Borrow a power-supply, and connect it to the motherboard, and see if the alternate power-supply solves the problem.

Im tryin to connect my USB in the computer to put my pictures on the computer but it wont let me ???/


Hello

A few questions that may confirm problem.
Does your computer seem to know that something is plugged in?
Or does it say that it does not recognize the device?

Well, if the computer actually knows that a device has been plugged in, but you just cannot see the device in my computer, here is how you fix that. Just follow these steps:
Control panel
Administrative tools
Computer management
Storage
Disc management

Now you should see your device presented in the schematic below.
Right click on the device and assign a new drive letter.

If your computer states that it does not recognize the device, try plugging it in one of the back USB ports of the computer. Please rate this.

Best regards

Exactly right. This has happened to me on two occasions, renew the power transformer and that will solve your problem.
