SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Macintosh computer not recognizing the LaCie external hard drive

First thing to check is whether the Mac recognises the LaCie hardware. Go to the Apple icon, and select 'About this Mac/Computer' then more info, which will launch System Profiler, check the FireWire section under Hardware to see if your drive is listed. Assuming it is, and that the Disk Utility program doesn't see the drive, then you'll need a Disk analysis program like 'Drive Genius' or a recovery program like 'Disk Warrior'
Should your drive not be seen under the FireWire section, you have an interface failure on the LaCie, which isn't terminal, you'll just need to put the drive in another HD case and then read the data. Reply to this and I'll try and give more help depending on the results you get in System Profiler.

SOURCE: I cant see my external

Hello,
for the product that you selected for your question, it is impossible for the LaCie Network Assistant to see it because it is a Local drive (USB).
The LaCie Network Assistant only detects the Network LaCie drives.
Regards,

Hallo, I have a LaCie Grand 1 TP external harddrive. I cant work in mine hard drive. I cant throw anything away i cant rename documents or put new ones on it. Some background info A few months...

Hi
you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.

1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)

4-enjoy

My lacie external drive cannot be located even though it is connected to my macbook. i can connect it to a PC with no problem but all tiff files are mac based so cannot open them in the PC. What should I...

Hook your drive back to your PC. Right click on it and check 'properties'. In the box that pops up if it says file system NFTS you are out of luck as that is a non mac compatable file system. If it says FAT32 it should be working on your Mac. If it says NFTS you'll need to transfer the files onto the PC reformat the drive using the LaCie software to FAT32 (the only file system that both Mac and PC can use) then transfer the files back to the external drive. Reformatting erases everything on the drive so don't forget to transfer the files first! I can place Tiff files into Adobe products on my PC so I'm not sure what you mean by Mac format tiff???
