Question about LaCie D2 Extreme 300 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Computer is having trouble connecting to hard drive LaCie 300 GB

The drive has been working fine for quite some time. Recently the CPU tries to read the drive and a little autoplay box comes up with a name of one of my folders (often picks between several of the folder names) as it searches the drive. Sometimes it even is able to recognize the drive with my folders showing but as soon as I click on a folder it locks up. Eventually an error message appears that states "delayed write failed". I am using a belkin Firewire 3 port card.I recently reinstalled windows and the same problem still exists after installation

That error message usually means the drive is working intermittently (writing to the disk), and drive failure occurs shortly thereafter. You might try a different connection mode (USB?), and make sure you have everything on that drive backed up or copied elsewhere.

SOURCE: Can't access my lacie external hard drive

I would first plug it in to a different PC, this will tell you if the problem is the Lacie or Windows Vista.
if it works on a different PC then remove it from Device manager or go to the Lacie website for Vista updates.

If it does not work on a different PC then there are 3 possibilities
1. the drive got cleared data lost
2. the enclosure is bad (I would bet on this)
3. the drive is bad

purchase a USB enclosure, remove the drive and install it in the new enclosure plug in and test.

Hope this helps
thanks for rating

Try this...

use a long bladed kitchen knife to get carefully spread apart the sides from the bottom plate. there are 4 small tabs along each side of the case going int 4 slots on the bottom plate. The long sharp blade inserts easily between the side and bottom plate.
Carefully pry the side away from the bottom plate starting from the front working towards the back. You gently twist the blade to get the tabs out of the slots. the first one is the hardest. After that they pop out easy.
to remove the hard drive mechanism, once you have the bottom plate off, remove the four silver screws--two along each side--then use the knife to separate the sides of the hard drive from the case, so that the front of the drive is angled up (you'll also have to pull the activity LED loose from its hotmelt glue), then slide the drive out of its metal mounting bracket--you won't be able to pull the drive out along with this bracket.

SOURCE: deleted 4 folders for lacie silverscreen 500gb

Dead easy, simply attached the SScreen to your PC/Mac and create the four folders:
"Movies"
"Pictures"
"Firmware"
"Music"

It requires these four folders to boot the OS!

--No Quotes in folder names--

SOURCE: Locked Folders

One week ago my LaCie external disk has been locked during a system reinstallation process in which the hard drive was plugged in.  The message was that I had no permission to access it. I thought I would loose for ever all the files I have been backed up for years. But finally I have got the solution for that. There is a sofware called MacPilot (I used version 3.2.6, $20, 15-day trial) that fixes it. Once instaled, click TOOLS, then "Files&Folders" at left, then "Unlock File or Folder", press "Choose", it opens FINDER and then you click LacCie Disk. When the padlock symbol at the botton of LACie disapears, you can finally change the permissions to "read&Record". That's all, and I hope it helps. 
I recommend that you always unplug external hard drivers during system reinstallation to prevent that.

How do I fix a broken port on my LaCie 320 gb hard drive that won't connect to the info?


It's really quite a simple fix... Simply disassemble the drive casing, and remove the hard drive itself, it's actually quite simple. Then install the hard drive into another, replacement external case - they are available at electronics retailers, computer stores, The best deals are found online at locations such as Amazon, eBay, or buy.com.

S.M.A.R.T status reads not supported


If there is an option to connect it using a USB cable instead of the firewire, I would try that first. I would also try to connect it to a different computer. lastly I would open the case and disconnect and re-connect thr ribbon cable on the drive. Make sure it isn't plugged in if you try the last option.

My Lacie 500GB drive shuts my laptop down when i connect it.


similar issue: my notebook hangs instead of restarting. i thought its the usb2.0 of my rather old(3yr) notebook. but i bought a cheap usb box for my old 120G hdd and it plug-n-play like a charm on the same old notebook/same usb port. quite frustrated with this Lacie 500G beast.

so i ended up backing up my notebook using the 1-click backup of Lacie but using my old 120G hdd instead of the new Lacie500G. but then, search as i would through the Lacie documentation, i see no mention of how to restore the data... still looking...

Hubs don't work on LaCie minin 250 GB Hard Drive


there is not enough power coming through ports each device re-quires 1-5 volts to run and if your mac has not got enough power to boot all devices then sadly all things pluged into will not reconise and with mac the os is not properly designed for it now if you got yourself an external usb 2.0 hub powered then yes all devices will be seen in mac windows firewire is unsafe at moment for this to happen ask them what system they had had configuration on. hope this has helped
