Question about LaCie Big Disk (300872) 400 GB Hard Drive
I've got a big disk that just stopped working suddenly. the green light on the power supply blinks green and the blue light won't come on when pressed. i've tried a different power supply and also tried connecting it to a different computer. it's out of warranty and la cie says it sounds like a bad internal power board. any suggestions where i can get it fixed or if i can fix it myself by moving the drive to another housing?
You could remove the drive if you can get the enclosure open and either install it in a new enclosure or as an additional HD inside your Pc. Good Luck.

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
if this fails to fix the problem
check usb leads for secure dust free seating
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps
