How to recover data from a LaCie Porsche 160 GB Hard Drive that's not working?

My La Cie hard drive decided to stop working. My Mac can't read it,even thought something is running inside. Led status light is out, but from underneath I can see some red light that is on near that area. The light on the charger is green. My whole life is in there. How can I recover it? Do you recommend any programs or tricks?
Thanks!!!

How do i transfer my data from my old la cie 80 gig 107443, to my new la cie 250 gig 300770? both boxes look the same, with the same connections [firewire, usb, 2 others].


Connect both drives to the computer at the same time. If you don't have enough USB ports, connect one to a USB port and the other to a Firewire port. Open a file management window (Explorer in Window, Finder in Mac OS) for each drive. Click and hold the left mouse button (only mouse button on most Mac models in the window for the 80 Gig drive and drag across several folders/files to select them. Release the mouse button, then click on and drag the selected group to the new drive window. When this copy operation is done, repeat with another group of files.

You could select (-A or -A) and drag everything on the old drive at one time, but sometimes the system will bog down on copying large amounts of data (greater than 4-8 GB at a time).

Hello,
your drive has failed at either the power supply level or internal hard drive level.
First, please verify your power supply. When plugged into the power outlet, it should be silent. A defective power supply will hiss or have a high pitch noise to it. If it is defective, replace it and check if the issue is resolved.
If the power supply is silent, one or both of the internal hard drive is failing. If no data is needed, you can either replace the defective one which you will have to isolate by connecting the internal hard drives to a computer or with another enclosure and running a block scan software like hdTune which is free to download. The other option would be to scavenge the healthy drive and use it in another enclosure or inside the computer directly.
If you need the data and the problem was not the power supply, you will need to contact a data recovery center.
Regards,

Can't find hard drive on computer anymore. Blue light constantly blinks on Lacie


My LaCie drive was not showing up on my Mac, and making a soft clicking sound ....I thought i was in for expensive data recovery and worse...But I met a guy who told me that La Cie have had a lot of trouble with their POWER SUPPLY and that i should try their customer service. I did, and after a round iof idiotic scripted replies I got to a smart CSR who sent me a NEW power supply. Hey Presto! The drive is back and working perfectly, no data lost!!!

Hard drive icon wont appear on desktop


Have a look in disk management for the drive.

Start > Run > type 'diskmgmt.msc'

If the drive is there and has a blue bar, try changing the drive letter.

If the drive is there, but has a black bar, you will need to recover your data with a recovery software (option - recuva recovery software) and then repartition the drive.

If the drive isn't there at all, you may need to try another USB port, another cable or even another computer.

If none of these options help, you may have to contact Lacie for your support options (possible replacement).

Your hdd circuitry has become faulty, even if the drive has not had any damage in any way, somtimes the componants just stop functioning.

Lacie external hd designed by f.a. porsch won't mount


I am sad to say that it's probable that this drive has failed. But if there is critical information on it, please unplug and discontinue use immediately.

You do stand a chance of recovering data if the drive has failed, but you lessen those chances as you continue to try to use it.

Definitely take this drive to a qualified repair outlet who can help with data recover if you need the information off of the drive.

Lacie 250 GB harddrive


Lacie Porsche drives in my experience or infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a small red or orange light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure. Hope this helps.
