If your BIOS is set to "allow classic USB support" (or similar terminology), then you are restricted to the drivers available at the date of BIOS version (or your PCs date of manufacture). The reason is, 16gb flash dd not exist n 2006. Most PCs/BIOS before 2006 can only mount 4gb flash memory or less. Most 2007 through early 2009 is limited to 8gb (this is not a restriction for USB HDD enclosures, older PCs can mount hundreds of gigabytes with older BIOS drivers).

1. If your BIOS allows you to change this setting, deselecting it may allow the OS to load a driver (Vista and Win7 both have native 16gb drivers).

2. Updating BIOS, if a newer one is available for your PC is also a solution, as flash media driver updates are almost always included.

3. if neither options are available for your PC, then you can go get a specific driver for this device from LaCie.com

One caveat: LaCie is renowned for slicing flash memory into two partitions. One is usually a "fake" read-only CD partition. This will not work in many updated BIOS, and even some of the newest PCs. USB HDDs can have multiple partitions, but not flash memory. If this is the case with your PC, then again, your only solution will be getting a device-specific driver from LaCie.

I have the Lacie Rugged hard drive 320,undetectable


Since you have tried connecting the hard drive (HD) into two computers (Win7 and Vista) and both of them had the same problem, you may want to try replacing the cable of the HD.

Another thing, try connecting the HD into a Windows XP computer and see if same thing will happen. If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned ON, I'm sorry to say but the HD is no longer working. That clicking sound is also called the "Click of Death".

Thank you!

No access to the disk, same clicking sound + constant light


It may not be getting enough power. Is there an external power supply you can plug in or another USB connector that can be plugged in to another port?
