Question about LaCie BRICK (301063U) 300 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Probolem with power cable

The power cable is all of a sudden giving me trouble. I was transferring some data on another computer and all of a sudden the power went out on the drive and I noticed that the green light on the transformer was flashing. Now whenever I plug it in, no matter where or on what computer, the green light flashes on the transformer and I can't turn the drive on.. or it will work for maybe 2 minutes then the light starts flashing and the power goes out on the drive. what does this mean? How could it have happened? I wasn't doing anything irregular. Normally I leave my drive plugged into the computer and the power all the time and I have never had this probolem. Only now. Any help would be greatly appreciated as there is alot of important data to me on that drive and I don't see any reason why it should have stopped working!

Power loss on a drive even if it is not transferring could be severe. Especially with Lacie gear. The bridgeboard ( which is the chip that transfers the content between the drive and the ports on the enclosure ) can fail instantainously if power varies or is cut. The major concern is if the internal drive is effected ( in the enclosure .)

Those things are cute, but not that reliable.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750. It went dead suddenly.


THERES A GOOD CHANCE THAT THE CABLE IS DAMAGED OR EVEN WORST THE CONNECTOR WITHIN THE UNIT IS DAMAGED OR BROKEN. TRY USING THE OTHER CABLE IE THE CAR TO UNIT CABLE OR THE USB TO UNIT CABLE IF EITHER ONE WORKS THE OTHER IS DEFECTIVE, IF NONE OF THEM WORK THERE GOES TROUBLE.

Data transferring trouble


I think first you want to use the correct data cable for your phone. then you have to install the drivers for your phone in to your computer. Then only you can transfer files between computer and phone. You can download the drivers from the internet.

Dell LCD monitor suddenly loses power


Hello,

Five years is a long time for an LCD panel. You definetly got your money's worth.

But, if your trouble shooing has led you to this conclusion I can also only conclude that the power driver inside your panel just gave up the ghost.

However, try giving Dell a call, for what's thats worth and see what they have to say.

You might also want to ask this expert "Robotek" what he may think as he is a board troubleshooter and could give you an answer if one is there.

Type this or copy and paste into your browser's address bar:

And then click on the Ask Me button under his picture.

SimpleTech 320GB Hard Drive- unable to detect the device


I had a similar problem with a SimpleTech 250g Pininfarina USB drive.
I went through the drivers, the power supply, the USB cables, and the various
computers, USB cards and Operating systems.
Finally I opened the case and found the disk drive was mounted too far
forward, causing the IDE connector to barely touch. I loosened the mount screws,
slid the drive back towards the connector, tightened everything down and it works.

Trouble with usb


This may not be any help, but I had the same problem with my MP3 player and it was the cable that was buggered. I bought a new one & all is good again. The old cable can still be used for charging, but not for data transfer. Don't know why.

V3x data cables


Yes you indeed do need a "Special cable" you can buy a "Set" Cable & CD to install the software to use on the phone... Ya do also have infrared transfer but thats so slow... Ebay or ya local Phone Shop would be ya best bet, get a cable, mine cost like NZ$10.00 (US$7.00) when I bought my "Set".
