Hi there, my Big Disk Icon disappeared completely.. and the computer does not recognise the LaCie when I switch everything off, de-connect and reconnect everything again... what happened and what can
Before anyone can help you with this they would need to know the operating system you using and possibly the hardware your using, and anything that may have changed, moving equipment changing anything power outages unplugging anything, anything that happened before the problem occured, also does the disk make any new noises or is it not spinning, put your hand on the case while its off and turn it on you should notice a slight vibration start this means its at least spinning, also are the led's(lights) illuminating as they did before or are they flashing or an odd color, also how are you trying to access the drive, from a file manager(finder/explorer/etc.) or an application(imovie/windows movie maker/etc.) and where was the icon normally, if using a mac it should normally mount directly to the desktop by itself, in windows it will appear in my computer after it has mounted, open the device manager and check to see if windows can see it at all....right click on [my computer] and select [properties] then click on the [hardware] tab then click the [device manager] button, expand the usb list or whatever type of connection is used for the disk, and see if it shows up also check in the removable storage areas and the hard drive list.

Posted Oct 13, 2006 - It's
not the drives that fail, it's the power supplies...
They fry after about 3 months-1.5 years. LaCie sells replacements for
about $16-$20, depending on the model. We have over 20 of these drives,
and here's how you know: the drive spins up, then down - it tries to
mount, data transfer will freeze, etc. Just put another power supply on
it, and 9 times out of 10, it's fine. Of course, any drive can fry on
you, but these have proven to be extremely reliable under some of the
hardest use imaginable.
