Yes - If the unit is USB it will work with any computer that has a USB port - if hooked up to any Mac though it normally will be formatted for use only with other Mac's. You can usually specify what type of filesystem you want to use when you have it hooked up.

My mobile hard drive lacie rugged crashed, doesn't show on laptop or iMac and i need to recover my data stored in it


You may need to send it out to a data recovery lab. Before that try a remote access data recovery service like http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They operate an online data recovery service via the internet and also offer do-it-yourself data recovery assistance.

I was going to suggest Recuva but if connecting the drive crashes your system that may not help.

You will probably need data recovery help. This guy does it remotely over the Internet and works off of donations.

Or if you need a data recovery lab this guy is the least expensive.

So, the problem is "local" to ONE of your computers.
Be sure that your computer is connected to AC power, not running solely on its battery.

Try some other USB device in the USB port, to confirm that the USB port is working.

the problem is that your lacie drive operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) under USB which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple mac is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac if you wish to use it via the USB connection.

an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-
http://mac.softpedia.com/get/System-Utilities/NTFS-3G.shtml

download and install the software then restart your mac.

Doesn't work


am not so sure if this is a similar issue with iomega2_bing.gif external drive in which the drive wont show up on My Computer but when the external drive was plugged into an ubuntu machine the drive was being detected and working just fine.

Please try to do the same. plug your external drive to an ubuntu machine and lets see if it can be detected. If it is then the hard disk has a similar issue with iomega drives. check this link for the solution.

Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.
