Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

Hard drive is "full" though I only have 186G on it

hereĀ“s a thought! You can try running chkdsk cause maybe your freespace is being reported incorrectly! Open command prompt: Go to Start->Run then type cmd and press enter Run the chkdsk utility: where x is the drive letter of the removable drive at the prompt type chkdsk x: /f and press enter now windows will scan for filesystem errors and fix any if found. Also on another note, items in your recycle bin count towards the amount of used space! hope this helps regards, babb

My LaCie external drive isn't getting power

U should test for power at the connector that goes into the lacie with a voltmeter to make sure power supply and its wire are OK. If no voltmeter then use a automobile brake or turn signal bulb to see if it has power.

Hello, I have a LaCie D2 525 Super Writemaster. Stopped reading CD, slowly flashing it'sLED. No image on desktop. Eject button doesn't react and paperclip insertion activates eject but tray is stuck.

Pushing in the paperclip should unlock it, but if still jammed, may have to wreck drive by pulling off front of drive drawer thing. Maybe try putty knife to push cd down some of that's holding it from opening.

I for got me password I don't even remember setting one up Lacie rugu3m2

Just an idea. When you set pass words or any important information write all information in a note book and keep it in a drawer someplace where you will not lose it. When things change write the new ones down and cross out the old ones. I save a lot of head aches that way.

I have a Lacie external drive when the power plug connection on the circuit board broke off. Can the circuit board be repaired or replaced?

Replace perhaps, but repair is most difficult. The electronics are miniature and it takes special tools to do repairs.

Can I remove the disc from a LaCie 300770 250 GB drive and try it in another drive? The drive is not working, so I hope the disc is ok.

Two ways this can go. If you are talking about the entire hard drive pulling it out and plugging the whole drive into another pc. Then you're fine If you are talking about disassembling the hard drive and moving the disks inside. This is not something you can do. This is what you will need. 1) a certified clean room surgical grade 2) tape 3) A matching drive/ hd board down to revision number 4) presision screw tools. 5) patience. Or you will need to contact a professional data recover company.

Remove write protection lacie disk

How old is the drive and has your set-up always behaved exactly the same way or what's different now, please? Does this happen only with Word files or what? Is that LaCie's own Disk Utilities, or what Mac OS are you using which pluralizes that?

I have a 1TB Lacie

I'd suggest to try the device on a different PC. If the issue persists the problem is obviously with the drive itself.
