Sorry for the late reply, but it may help someone else with the same problem.

Are you using a USB2 port, perhaps it's may not be getting enough power. In the orginal Lacie box was a double USB dongle - it allows you to take the power from two USB ports and send them to the Silverscreen, if the SScreen was getting quite enough power.

Or buy a double USB power cable (like: http://www.n-c.fr/webshopncrevendeurs/catalog/images/Double_Cable_USB.jpg)

Otherwise remove the 2.5" disk (remove two screws, & gently pull out) and use a caddy to check the HD disk is still working.

The letters of www.adszens.com becomes so small that I can't hardly read the articles on it. What should I do?


You can simply adjust the zoom factor of your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) by holding down the Control key and press the plus sign (+) to zoom in and the minus sign (-) to zoom out.
Ctrl-0 (Number 0) brings it back to normal.

Just want to install this in a different computer, but computer won't reboot. wants to open in safe mode or last good config. Tried jumper in every location, although it is master


If this hard drive was moved from one computer to another, it is likely not booting because of a hardware discrepancy. If you're using Windows XP, this is common when moving from a machine with a single-core processor to one with a dual- or greater- core processor. It also happens when moving from an AMD processor to Intel or vice versa.

The short answer to your question is "Yes" however, all information on the drive would be lost. As a work-around, store/move more information to the D: volume. Perhaps install any new software programs to D: rather than C:

Deleted 4 folders for lacie silverscreen 500gb


Dead easy, simply attached the SScreen to your PC/Mac and create the four folders:
"Movies"
"Pictures"
"Firmware"
"Music"

It requires these four folders to boot the OS!

--No Quotes in folder names--

Cheers

LaCie silverscreen Utilities CD-ROM


The OS is hidden in memory, you can clear all files off the machine and it will still work.

The only requirements are the 4 folders:
Firmware
Movies
Music
Pictures

That's it!

New firmware can be found at www.lacie.com
