La Cie porsche drive not showing up on my computer

I got a new hard drive for my old Sony computer. The LaCie drive worked fine, then when I started plugging it in it wouldn't show up in My computer. (With the old hard drive I occasionally had that problem but I think it was a USB thing.) When I go to Device managers, it shows up under USB as generic, location 0, but I can go to disk manager in My computer and find it there. I keep trying to assign it a letter but they never stick. Help!

    Oh, yeah, and on hardware it says it's installing a device and can only do one at a time. But it's been saying that for days now, since it stopped mounting. I've done the right click My Computer thing, too; only place it shows up is in Disk Manager.

How do I transfer from my la cie to my computer

Remove the USB module from the LaCie Write Card and plug it into a free USB port on your computer. Your computer should assign a new drive letter to the USB module (such as D: or higher letter). In Windows use Windows Explorer (on a Mac use File Manager) and you will be able to copy files from your LaCie USB module to your computer.

How do i transfer my data from my old la cie 80 gig 107443, to my new la cie 250 gig 300770? both boxes look the same, with the same connections [firewire, usb, 2 others].

Connect both drives to the computer at the same time. If you don't have enough USB ports, connect one to a USB port and the other to a Firewire port. Open a file management window (Explorer in Window, Finder in Mac OS) for each drive. Click and hold the left mouse button (only mouse button on most Mac models in the window for the 80 Gig drive and drag across several folders/files to select them. Release the mouse button, then click on and drag the selected group to the new drive window. When this copy operation is done, repeat with another group of files.

You could select (-A or -A) and drag everything on the old drive at one time, but sometimes the system will bog down on copying large amounts of data (greater than 4-8 GB at a time).

My external La Cie 500Gig HDD has worked well for 3 years or more. Now when I connect it (via USB as aI have always done) ..The following happens: 1 I see the drive usually but not always under "My...

Hello,
your drive has failed at either the power supply level or internal hard drive level.
First, please verify your power supply. When plugged into the power outlet, it should be silent. A defective power supply will hiss or have a high pitch noise to it. If it is defective, replace it and check if the issue is resolved.
If the power supply is silent, one or both of the internal hard drive is failing. If no data is needed, you can either replace the defective one which you will have to isolate by connecting the internal hard drives to a computer or with another enclosure and running a block scan software like hdTune which is free to download. The other option would be to scavenge the healthy drive and use it in another enclosure or inside the computer directly.
If you need the data and the problem was not the power supply, you will need to contact a data recovery center.
Regards,

Can't find hard drive on computer anymore. Blue light constantly blinks on Lacie

My LaCie drive was not showing up on my Mac, and making a soft clicking sound ....I thought i was in for expensive data recovery and worse...But I met a guy who told me that La Cie have had a lot of trouble with their POWER SUPPLY and that i should try their customer service. I did, and after a round iof idiotic scripted replies I got to a smart CSR who sent me a NEW power supply. Hey Presto! The drive is back and working perfectly, no data lost!!!

La Cie (500 GB) icon not showing up on desktop

If you are having trouble with the drive it is possible that the USB controller on the drive failed but the drive its self should be fine.

I would try the drive on another computer to see if it detects properly. Sometimes if the drive gets stopped improperly this can cause detection propblems but connecting it to another computer will force a scan of the drive that will repair any corrupted files that may be on the drive. Also check to see if the drive shows in disk management. The links below will show you how to check this.

If the drive does not show up in disk management and the drive is not in warranty I would recommend opening the drive and connecting it directly to your computer to access the data.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

I have an old La Cie 160gb (maybe 5 years old?) - do you know the specs? rpm, for instance? I need something with 7200. This old one must be 5400, right?

Lacie drives have a 5400 RPM on there 160GB line nothing really changed until 500 GB to 1tB at 7200 RPM.

so the answer is 5400 RPM

Hope this helps please do rate and leave feedback.

Disassemble a La Cie Porsche-design external CD burner case?

I just pulled one apart. You're not going to get it to work unless you pry it apart on the bottom. the parts are stuck together with 2 sided tape. use a thin, flat bladed screwdriver to pop it apart. i did this with relative ease, and it worked alright. didn't trash the plastic too badly either.

Blu light flashing

This is most probably a faulty power cable, a common fault on La Cie apparently. Another cable got my disk working fine!
